MSI Wind U160In the lead up to CES 2010 we are seeing an increasing number of new netbooks come to light before the rush at CES.

The MSI Wind U160 is the latest 10-inch netbook offering from MSI featuring the latest generation 1.66GHz Intel Atom N450 Pine Trail processor. Judging from the photos the MSI U160 looks very sleek and slim with a stylish design.

It also features a 250GB hard drive, 1GB of RAM and a claimed 10-hour battery life. It has a flush touchpad that is only distinguishable from the palm rest by small raised dots, giving it a great look.

The battery also appears to be flush to the bottom of the netbook, rather than bulging out. This is great to see for a 6-cell battery which provides 10-hours of run time.

Pricing is expect to start at a very tempting $379. We will no doubt find out more information on this appealing netbook later this week.

Update: The MSI Wind U160 is now available to order for $379 from Amazon in black, and brown colors.
