MSI will have the entire netbook lineup at this year?s CeBIT exhibition, and the latest U115 Hybrid and U110 ECO will also be making its appearance, among with the touch screen models Wind Top AE2010, AE2200 and Wind Top AE1900.
MSI U115 Hybrid and U110 ECO
MSI continues to invest and develop the netbook products, and has already introduced the business oriented U120 to the U100 and U90 lineup. The upcoming U115 Hybrid and U110 ECO will also be introduced at CeBIT 2009 in Hannover, Germany.
After releasing the U100 10" netbook in 2008, MSI announced the new product including U120, U115 Hybrid and U110 ECO netbooks. U120 is the first "WiMAX Ready" netbook in the market. U115 Hybrid is the world?s first netbook with both SSD and HDD drives built-in, where the dual storage design and ECO power saving technology extends the battery life of the netbook up to 12 hours (with a 6cell battery).
The dual storage design of the U115 Hybrid offers the pick of a 8GB or 16GB SSD matched to a 120GB or 160GB 2.5" SATA hard disk. As the U115 Hybrid's operating system is loaded on the SSD, boot times and performance are greatly increased.
The SATA hard disk on the other hand provides you with all the storage you need. An unusual feature is the ability to temporarily shut down the SATA hard disk in ECO mode. All data access and storage is handled by the SSD instead, allowing the U115 Hybrid to achieve up to 12 hours of battery life.
The U110 ECO making its debut at CeBIT features the Atom processor on the Intel Menlow platform. With the MSI exclusive power saving design, the netbook features up to 9 hours of battery life when using a 6cell battery. In addition to the 9 hours of battery life, the U110 ECO is also fairly thin and light at just 1kg and the size of a piece of B5 paper (26cm x 18cm). Not only that, the U110 ECO supports 802.11 b/g/n wireless networking and Bluetooth technologies. Other features include up to 2GB supported memory, full multimedia interface including 4-in-1 card reader (XD, SD, MMC, Memory Stick), three USB2.0 ports and 1.3 or 2.0 megapixel webcam.
