MSI Wind U160 with Pine Trail pictured
PC maker MSI will bring a newly redesigned Wind netbook to CES, the U160. Like other netbooks surfacing as of late, this one will also be powered by the Intel Pine Trail platform's new 1.66GHz Intel Atom CPU, and the screen size is set at the netbook-ubiquitous 10.1 inches. Otherwise, there is a MacBook-like 'chiclet' keyboard and a nearly invisible touchpad that's only defined by a grid of raised dots.
While other specs are not yet known, they will be made public at CES, and are likely to be shared with other netbooks, which many likely be a 160GB hard drive and 1GB of RAM. MSI claims a 10-hour battery life for the U160, while pricing is said to start at about $350. No release dates are yet known, however. [via Engadget]
