After comparing the various currently available netbooks, I had a toss up between the 6-cell MSI Wind U123, Samsung NC10, and Asus Eee PC 1000HE. Although I liked the longer battery life of the Samsung and Eee PC, I wound up going with the U123 because it's lighter and more compact than the Eee PC (2.6lbs vs 3.2lbs), and has a newer processor than the Samsung (Intel Atom N280 vs N270). It didn't hurt that the U123 is slightly less expensive than the Samsung NC10 and Eee PC 1000HE. I also briefly...

Just got the Wind today in the mail. Very nice little computer.Took about 14 minutes to get all booted up initially but it starts up very quickly after that.So far I have surfed the internet, played online poker, and messed with the settings. Nothing too amazing. It handles everything well, not discernably different from my 2.2Ghz Core 2 Duo macbook. I'm not going to attempt too much with this anyways. Youtube worked fine, but netflix instant movies wasn't working tonight. I don't know what the ...

UPDATE ON MEMORY UPGRADES: Contrary to what I have read on the web--and my own previous post on this page--installing the RAM upgrade will NOT void the MSI warranty. I have received written confirmation of this from Tom Ho at MSI.com.MY ADVICE: Don't even think about buying one of these without upgrading the RAM--it's the easiest and cheapest way to boost performance, and netbooks are notorious for their slow processing speeds relataive to standard notebooks.NOTE: My five-star rating is based...

This is a nice choice if you are traveling a lot. Battery life is long lasting and the performance under WINDOWS XP SP3 is good enough for web and office use. Entertainment (audio and video) during long flights and in waiting areas of airports is possible but due to the weak audio performance a little bit difficult, even with earphones. It is much faster with UBUNTU 9.04 but not stronger in audio output, so you can only solve the audio problems with an amplified headset. UBUNTU runs without prob...

I am traveling around the world with this netbook and overall i'd say it's a good product but not great. Love the screen, size, weight, and speed of it, however the keyboard while ok has two faults i have issues with. 1 the period key is to small and scrunched so when typing almost everytime you need it you'll hit another key. 2. while typing the cursor has a tendency to jump around to other sections of a paragraph and if you are not paying attention will delete something you have already ty...

Having set up two white u100's, and one of the very first blue u123's, I prefer the white U100's for several reasons: There are more aftermarket battery options for U100's (even a 9 cell battery good for about 11 hours is only $65 on Amazon), the white finish is matte and not the fingerprint attractor that the blue is & the u123 has chrome track-pad buttons which I dislike immensely. RAM installation is about the same, though the u123 only has one slot, so you replace it's 1GB with a 2GB stick....

Great for the price.
 
This unit has a dual processor! Had some difficulty getting the wireless to be recognized until I changed the default settings. Other than that, it's a sweet little unit.

What's great about it: Fast, light, very long battery life What's not so great: Battery feels a bit loose even when locked in "This netbook is very fast nice sized keyboard. Easier to carry around due to light weight I can hold it with one hand and type with the other no problem at all. my current laptop doesn't have the ability to cut off the mouse pad and his one does way to go MSI. Extremely long battery life I was using it today and only had 90% life left and sti...

I recieved my U123 on 9/15/09 and so far it has been working great! Obviously I've only had it a few days but it has proven to be very useful and reliable. I actually converted this netbook into a hackintosh and have found it quite refreshing compared to windows xp. The 6-cell battery lasts around 4:30 running OSX which is good enough for me as I am typically not away from a power source longer than 3 hours. I upgraded the ram to 2g just for a nice performance boost since I usually run lots of a...
