Good points:
Great for installing OS X - lots of user friendly guides to doing this. Decent sized keyboard and quality feeling overall.
Bad points:
Battery life on the 3 cell is not great - lasts about 2hours on XP, less using OS X. Probably will get hold of a spare battery on ebay to compensate for this.

Stylish, functional and easy to use. The keyboard is spaced out nicely so makes typing easy. The web cam is fun to use too.

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Well designed and excellent keyboard. Appears to be well built. No problems so far. If you can get it for a good price its an excellent netbook.
Bad points:
The full stop button on the keyboard is a smaller size than all the others. This can be a bit annoying if you type quickly. Otherwise the keyboard is an excellent size and much better than the ones on other netbooks i have used. I had a Samsung NC 10 and returned it after a week to get the MSI wind. The keyboard on the NC10 was so badly arranged that it was almost unusable. MSI wind is much better in that respect.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
very cute design. lovely and light. does everything i need to which is mainly working with documents and occasionally surfing net
Bad points:
battery life not great but you can get much bigger/better batteries as spares, which I have, for not much money - definitely worth it
the mouse pad is a bit over-sensitive - takes some getting used to - easy to inadvertently touch it and wonder why half you text has been erased!

It can operate just as any other notebook computers; without the worries of not having enough memory capacity to record the greatest moments in life.

Intel® Atom™ Processor uses a brand new design structure as basis adding in as much as 47 million transistors into one single chip, and the size is not even 25 (mm)².

Our focus was on the common products in the market, such as PDA’s, digital cameras, digital video cameras, digital MP3 Players, Global GPS Systems and such, also connecting to the U100 through USB 2.0 Port.
