MSI Wind U100: MSI was next to enter the netbook market, providing a breath of fresh air with its Wind U100 model. This model was white, had a 10in screen, an 80GB hard drive, 1GB RAM, ran Windows XP, and was based on Intel’s Atom N270 CPU (1.6GHz). Most importantly, it provided excellent battery life through its 6-cell battery. It was easy to use, making it one of our favourite netbooks, but it wasn’t without its flaws; mainly, it was a top-heavy unit, which means it easily fell over while in your lap. Its price was $699 at launch.
