MSI Launches Wind U110 ECO Boasting Nine Hours of Battery Life
MSI just keeps breeding that Wind family. Today the Taiwanese company unveiled it Wind U110 ECO, which sports a similar chassis to the Wind U115 but is slated to get 9 hours of battery life. Using Intel’s Menlow Atom family of processors (the 1.6GHz Atom Z530), which is optimized for battery savings, and a higher capacity battery, MSI is confident that the ECO will be one of the longest running netbooks on the track. Other than its predicted battery capabilities the 10-inch LED Backlit U110 ECO has the run of the mill netbook specs including an 1GB of RAM and Windows XP. It will have a US15 chipset which uses Intel’s GMA 500 graphics. Early reports indicated that it would have an ATI Mobility Radeon HD3200 graphics card. Andy Tung of MSI confirmed this was a misprint on the company’s Website. Similar to the U100 it has a 4-in-1 card reader, 3 USB, Ethernet, mic and headphone jacks. It also has a 1.3 megapixel camera, Bluetooth 2.0 and 802.11b/g/n options. According to MSI U.S. they are undecided at the moment if the U100 ECO will hit domestic shores.
