Reviews for the MSI Wind U210-075UK
Source: PC Advisor
MSI has kept the ‘Wind' moniker for its new U210-075UK netbook but, besides the familiar curvy body, almost everything has changed. MSI fits the Wind U210-075UK with a slightly more powerful processor and graphics than most netbooks, although this reduces battery life. Nor did we like the touchpad. Even so, this is an attractive, speedy model that earns a Recommended badge.

ATI Radeon Xpress X1250: It is an onboard graphic chip, implemented on AMD M690G. Sometimes, it is also called Mobility Radeon X1250. It is based on X700 design but with less pixel- and vertex pipelines. It hardly suited for players.
These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.
MV-40: Slow single core processor for small and thin laptops. A bit faster than Atom based systems but the power consumption is also higher.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that size.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.

The market share of laptops with the MSI brand is rather low.
80%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
