FedEx did me a favor and delivered my MSI Wind a day early, so here’s a twenty minute walk though and overview of the device. This is the unit with the 6-cell battery, which I estimate will get me a good five-plus hours of real-world run time. I originally purchased a new white MSI Wind from Dynamism at $599, but while waiting for the order to be fulfilled, I noticed they had a black open-box unit for $20 less. I jumped on it and Dynamism threw in two useful goodies which I cover in the video.
This is just my first impressions after using the netbook for all of an hour; I’ll be spending much more time with the MSI Wind over the next week or two of course. Drop your questions in the comments and I’ll do what I can to answer them! So far, I’m pretty impressed in terms of performance, build quality, keyboard and functions. $579 worth of impressed? I might be, but I’ll know for sure in a few days.
