MSI Wind12 U200 official

Taiwan-based computer maker MSI has officially announced the 12.1-inch, CULV-based Wind12 U200 ultraportable. Labeled as the first 12.1-inch notebook powered by Intel's Consumer Ultra Low Voltage (CULV) line, it comes with a 1.4GHz Core 2 Solo that gives it much more performance than a netbook but without as much of a jump in price or power use as a full-size system. Accordingly, it weighs less than 3.1lbs with its stock 3-cell battery.

The keyboard is also characterized as new and revolves around a Ergonomic De-Stress (EDS) design meant to increase comfort as well as actual typing speeds.

The Wind12's screen produces a 1366x768 resolution. Up to 4GB of RAM can specified for the notebook, and graphics processing is handled by Intel's integrated GMA 4500MHD processor. There is a choice of 2.5-inch hard drives, ranging from 160GB, to 250GB and 320GB capacities. While common netbook features like Wi-Fi and a card reader are stock, Bluetooth is optional on the machine.

Pricing and release dates for the Wind12 are unknown.
