Excellent mobile computer
 
I've owned my MSI Wind, w/6 cell battery, since November, and have no complaints (but, one suggestion). After traveling with notebook computers for at least the past 15 years, it is great to finally have an alternative that weighs less then 3 lbs, has a long battery life, and runs all the software that I normally use on the road. One suggestion for MSI -- ship the netbook w/the Wi Fi turned on, or at least a card with a hint to his Fn F11 to turn it on. I only found out by finding...

Press Function-F11 to turn on the WiFi
 
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: MSI Wind U120-001US 10-Inch Gray Netbook - 6 Cell Battery (Personal Computers) I bought this for a friend and have been setting up software and updates for them over the past couple of days. I think the styling of the HP Mini is much nicer than the MSI Winds, but I'm getting battery life of 4 hours and change on this for a much better price....

Beware of the 1GB RAM Limitation
 
The MSI Wind is a perfectly serviceable netbook, with a nice 10 inch screen, massive (for the genre) hard drive, great keyboard (with nearly full-size layout), and it is very lightweight. Battery life is adequate, but not quite the battery life you would expect from a 6-Cell Battery. The one flaw is that it is not possible to add additional RAM to this unit -- the prior version of the Wind is set up to allow the owner to add an additional 1GB stick of SO-DIMM. I ordered this unit before there h...

Also Disappointed
 
This review is from: MSI Wind U120-001US 10-Inch Gray Netbook - 6 Cell Battery (Personal Computers) I also bought this with the understanding it would be upgradeable to 2Gb. Amazon recommended the purchase of the additional 1 Gb and the carry case at the time of purchase. I understood that opening the case to upgrade would violate the warranty but I was willing to do that for the additional ram. I was very disappointed when after opening the case I discovered that it is not u...

Great Design But No RAM upgrade possible
 
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: MSI Wind U120-001US 10-Inch Gray Netbook - 6 Cell Battery (Personal Computers) I thought this was the perfect netbook when I pre-ordered. But when it came I saw the RAM was not upgradable to 2gb like most netbooks (and like I believe the description stated when I ordered)I used it for a bit and found the screen, keyboard and touc...

Great, affordable 10-in netbook, except for a couple of serious flaws
 
I got this for under $300 at a local store. This is the best netbook possible for the price in my opinion. I compared it at the store against the Acer 10-in netbook which costs around $50 more. I didn't look at other 6-cell, 10-in brands because they tend to cost quite a bit more. Here are my observations:1) Screen: Don't even look at a 9-inch screen or smaller. A 10-inch screen is much easier on the eyes and well worth the small bump in cost. Also, look for a matte screen, no...

Great Netbook, Don't be Fooled into Buying More Memory
 
I've had it for one week and love it. It is perfect for internet browsing and ok for office applications. The 1 gig memory is adequate.I too was fooled into buying the 1gig ram upgrade due to the "commonly purchased together" link. I returned the ram and emailed a complaint, but the link touting the memory upgrade still exists. Even worse when I just came to the web page to write this review, a banner ad showed up to a memory supplier offering upgraded memory for the U120.

Good Product but there is a Memory issue
 
This is a great product. Easy to use. Lightweight. Nice screen. Note the current MSI Wind 120 is NOT RAM upgradable. Even though Amazon is suggesting getting the ram with this netbook, the slot for RAM expansion has been eliminated. So 1 GB RAM max. I am stuck with RAM I cannot use in this computer. Otherwise I would have given it 5 stars.

So far, so good.
 
I received my netbook yesterday, and so far I am very pleased with it. First, let me say, I am NOT a techie kind of girl. I purchased this machine because I am starting a masters program and I wanted something I could carry in my book bag. It's connecting well to the wireless router in my house and I'd say the internet speed (on Chrome browser)is absolutely as fast as my desktop. The keyboard is a smidge smaller than a traditional laptop, but I can still touch type with it.Web pages are surprisi...

LOVE my WIND, but not MSI's "Warranty"!
 
When I bought my MINI 10, I wasn't sure how to load programs on it. I do not have my computers networked, and I was under the impression that it would connect to my computer via a USB port . . . obviously, I'm not a computer IT person . . . but I do love new gadgets! It was very EASY to boot up. Everything practically loaded itself! I found that by copying my program CDs to my flash drive, they were simply a "click and install" option to load them on the Mini. I thought I was going to have ...
