The MSi Wind12 U230 is a Windows 7 netbook featuring a 1.6GHz Athlon Neo X2 dual-core processor, up to 4GB of RAM, and a 160GB, 250GB or 320GB SATA hard-disc drive. This unit packs a fair amount of power compared to its competeing chipset combination Intel Atom / gma950 found in other netbooks and as far as netbooks go this has a rather large screen at 12.1". Some of the more notable features include an ergonomic keyboard, a 1.3MP web-camera, and a net weight of only 2.9lbs. Most signature to the U230 is its ATI Radeon HD 3200 integrated graphics chipset, which in tandem with the HDMI port allows users to watch and/or transmit HD quality footage up to a 1920x1080 resolution. Additional features include Gigabit Ethernet, Draft N wireless, optional Bluetooth, and optional 6-cell  battery.
