Great little netbook!
 
My main computer is a Toshiba Satellite laptop with a 17" screen, and it is a pain (literally) to carry everywhere. So after much research, I decided to buy the MSI Wind U123 (in red). After a few days of using it, I can say that I am pleased with my decision so far. MSI may be a lesser known brand, but they make great little netbooks.Immediate improvements: The first thing I did was upgrade the memory to 2gb (Crucial Technology CT25664AC800 2GB 200-pin SODIMM DDR2 PC2-6400 Memory Mo...

Terrible Mouse Buttons! Otherwise OK
 
I can't believe that all the parts (screen, CPU, RAM, hard disk, keyboard, Windows license, etc), plus all the shipping (parts go to China and back, and then from Amazon to me) still only costs me $326. It's a real bargain, AFAIAC.I ordered another 1 GB SODIMM of RAM to upgrade, but realized that there's only one slot on the inside, which already had 1 GB. You'll have to buy a 2 GB stick and throw away the existing 1 GB stick to get to 2 GB.The CPU is quite nice -- it's a...

good price/performance
 
the product was delivered quite fast. It's good to work with because it's not so heavy and the battery life of 4h is good. The only disadvantage are the touchpad buttons. they look anf feel very cheap, and I quess they will break soon if I don't use a mouse. But altogether it's worth the price.

great snazzy little netbook
 
After much research, i bit the bullet and went with this very affordable and snazzy little netbook.THE GOODS: newer N280 chipset (uses less power and goes 4+ hrs on a 6 cell battery), fully upgradable (i replaced the RAM to 2GB), size and weight = very protable, brilliant dark red cover, not much bloatware - and is able to run all of my fav SW (ie. Skype, Office, Hulu, etc.) and older games (ie HALO, Half Life, C&C, etc.)THE SUCKS: no native bluetooth, the whole bottom co...

After 2 monhs, love it even more than day 1!
 
I've owned my red U123 for about 2 months now. Pardon the hyperbole, but it's changed my life. I am a writer & flaneur who likes to walk & work. My HP Pavilion is studly, but is a literal pain in the neck to haul in my backpack. For what I need -- word processing, wifi, long battery life, ultraportable -- the Wind's perfect.I commonly get 5 hours of battery life, but haven't run it completely down yet, so dunno the limit. I plan to get a 9 cell battery, but the 6 cell is ...

Better than I thought
 
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?) I read all the reviews and thought I was prepared, but my MSI Wind turned out to be better than I thought. I saw lots of complaints about the touchpad, but I don't have any problems with mine. In fact it works better than the one on my laptop. The speakers are absolutely terrible. You just can't turn them up loud enough. But I used it with earbuds and that worked just fine. I c...

MSI Wind
 
This particular netbook, although not well know in this area, is an excellent value. Internet access speed is excellent. Keyboard is large enough for people with large hands. It is very lighweight. I would highly recommend the MSI Wind. The 6 cell battery hold a charge for a long time.

Exactly as expected.
 
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?) Did extensive research into the Wind U100, U120, and, U123 units before purchasing the U123 for my wife.Inability to expand the U120's 1GB RAMu removed it from consideration. Yes, the U123 required "discarding" the factory 1GB stick for a new 2GB stick, but the U100 wasn't available in RED; the U123 was. If I decide to get a U100 for myself in the near future, then I have the ...

Little Red Machine
 
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?) We purchased the MSI U123 Red netbook for on-the-go use. Shortly after purchase, we traveled to Costa Rica. Internet reception was great, as was the speed of the connections. We Skyped with family back in Wisconsin (video calls), and the calls were first rate. The keyboard is just a bit small, and if you are not really careful, you send the cursor all over the page, and ev...

Very nice netbook
 
Having owned an MSI motherboard and loving it for a year now, I couldn't wait to check out MSI's attempt at a netbook. I really like this a lot! Great feeling keyboard and quality hinges along with a very nicely painted red top contribute to a netbook that stops passersby whenever I'm using it. 3 USB slots plus the built-in card reader make this a very versatile unit. I swapped the original RAM for the Crucial 2GB Crucial Technology CT25664AC800 2GB 200-pin SODIMM DDR2 PC2-6400 Memory Module...
