MSI Wind U110 ECO and U115 Hybrid Long Battery Life Wins German Notebook Journal and Greek PC World Awards

TAIPEI, TW, July 22, 2009 - (ACN Newswire) - For netbooks, it's not just the light weight, compact size and comfortable 10" screen that matters. A long battery life is what businessmen on the move are looking for!

MSI Wind U110 ECO

The MSI Wind U110 ECO and U115 Hybrid are not lightweight, at 1.2kg with battery included and come with 10" 1024x600 high-resolution energy-saving LED backlight displays. Smaller than a piece of A4 paper, their convenience and portability makes them the perfect choice of business travelers. What really makes the U100 ECO and U115 Hybrid stand out is MSI's proprietary ECO energy-saving solution and Hybrid (SSD+HDD) storage technology. In endurance tests, the U115 achieved up to 12.5 hours of battery life while the U110 was an impressive 9 hours as well. *Actual battery life will vary depending on usage and settings.

In its review of the U110, the German professional notebook publication the Notebook Journal (www.notebookjournal.de) was so impressed, they gave the U110 a "Very Good" for overall performance (see www.notebookjournal.de/tests/review-msi-wind-u110-929/1). The report also mentioned that the U110's screen brightness of 286cd/m2 was the highest brightness in the latest line-up of reviewed netbooks and it was able to run the U110 for 394 minutes under constant load. This means it can run for the whole day on a single charge! The U115 gave an even more impressive performance. In actual testing, the Notebook Journal found that battery endurance was 806 minutes, the longest of any netbook in review and a full 300 minutes longer than the runner-up at 533 minutes.

MSI's Wind U110 and U115 10" netbooks have also continued to rise above the competition in media reviews around the world. In addition to the U110 winning praise from the German Notebook Journal, MSI Wind U115 with its Hybrid Storage technology walked off with the Best Choice and Media's Choice awards from this year's COMPUTEX. It was the only netbook to win the Best Choice award among the hundreds of competing offerings on display, and the Greek PC World magazine crowned it the triple-winner with the "Best Product Award", "Excellence Performance Award" and "Editor's Choice Award"!

The newly unveiled 12" Wind12 U200 notebook attracted strong support from the U.S. Laptop Magazine and was chosen as its Best Product of Computex 2009. The article noted the U200's 12" display and seamless bezel gave it tremendous designer appeal. Being based on the Intel CULV platform provides for a battery life of over 5 hours as well, it not only boasts increased endurance over conventional notebooks but is also more portable and delivers higher performance. It was therefore named Laptop Magazine's Best Notebook Product from Computex 2009.
