MSI’s Wind U100 with new CPU was announced back in April and finally it is here. The (new) Wind U100 Plus features an Atom N280 CPU and this means you get a slightly higher clock speed, 1.66HHz to be exact, and a 667MHz bus versus 533MHz on the N270.
Rest of the specs remain unchanged, but there’s is barely much to change as it already has just about everything Intel and Microsoft allow on a Windows XP based netbook, i.e. 1GB of RAM and a 160GB hard drive
Even after the processor update, the prices are expected to stay the same, and the new version should not cost more than the old N270-based Wind. It will be available in two new colors: Rose Champagne and Metallic Blue.
