MSI Wind UK price + Preorder available.

Posted on 08 May 2008 by

Expansys have put their pricing up for the 10″, XP and Linux versions of the MSI Wind.

The XP Home version based on the 1.6Gz Diamondville (assumed) Atom processor, 10″ LED-Backlit, 80GB (2.5″) hard drive, 1GB of RAM, Wifi, Bluetooth and a 1.3MP WebCam is available for pre-order for 350 pounds. The Linux version is 30 pounds less. By Expansys pricing, this puts it at only 70 pounds (about 25%) more expensive than the 4GB Eee PC. The XP version of the wind is even the same price as the Linux version of the HP 2133!

Looking across Expansys Europe, the German price (for the UK, XP Version) is 459 Euro’s which makes the Packard Bell Easynote look expensive at 499.

Update: US price (UK version export through expansys-usa) is $610.

At these prices, I think the MSI Wind might take the cheap mininote crown, especially with the girls! Interested parties can make their way over to Expansys. (Affiliate link.)

    I am sold! This is exactly what I wanted in a laptop! I was seriously looking at the Asus Eee 900, but the cramped keyboard, small hard drive capacity, and price made me hesitate. Now, my only concern is the battery life. Other than that, I’d like a black one please!

    10″, but only 1024×600! Is HP the only company that tested surfing the web with their ultraportable?

  • I think the price is okay for the msi wind. The Asus EEE is only 60 Euros cheaper and has to low diskspace and display resoluion, so the wind should be thr better choice.

    Check out the battery that comes with it, only 3 cells. Apparently there is a problem with the 6 cells and none of the winds will have them for release.

    It´s a very nice Notebook.
