MSI U110The MSI Wind U110 has also gone by the name of the U110 Eco. This is due to it’s efficient power handling, which along with a nine cell battery provides it with over 12 hours from a single charge.

The MSI U110 has the same design as the original Wind U100, and builds on the U115 Hybrid netbook which featured both an SSD and standard HHD, giving it large storage capacity and low power usage. Microsoft didn’t like the hybrid design and MSI removed it from their lineup. The new MSI Wind U110 doesn’t feature a hybrid storage system but features a very large 7800 mAh 9-cell battery.

Specification wise the MSI U110 has a 10-inch 1024 x 600 pixel LCD, powered by the Intel Atom Z530 CPU, 1GB of RAM, and a 160GB hard drive.

In LaptopMag’s MSI Wind U110 review they say the design is a little dated (referring to having the same design as the U100) and the trackpad is a little small, but highly commend it’s battery life, and call it the “longest running netbook yet”, with 12.5 hour run time!

They do call it a little expensive at $429, but it has since dropped to just $369 at Amazon.com.

To put it simply, if you want a netbook with standard specifications and very long run time, which makes it great for use on the go, the MSI Wind U110 would be ideal.
