MSI Wind12 U230 AMD-Based Netbook Review
Patrick "MACMAC" MacMillan
PC Perspective have reviewed the new MSI Wind12 U230-040, a 12.1" netbook that is based on the low-power AMD Athlon 64 X2 L335 dual-core processor.
Here's what they had to say:
"After running the MSI Wind U230 through our tests, it is safe to say that it is one of the fastest performing netbooks we have tested here at PC Perspective. (In some tests it was nearly twice as fast as the Asus Eee 1201N). For a netbook, the MSI U230-040 definitely has some teeth to chew through some of your most intensive everyday tasks. Indeed, the Wind U230-040 was able to run Illustrator CS4, Photoshop CS4, and a host of other smaller apps simultaneously without any significant issues during my typical work day."
While the AMD processor and IGP are great, the netbook itself is a little bit of a disappointment since it does 'look' cheap and has a poor keyboard.
