MSI netbook claims 15 hours of battery life
Maximum battery life is an obsession for laptop makers and buyers alike. Well, MSI, a Chinese OEM/ODM that makes both laptops as well as components like notebooks, has introduced the Wind U110 ECO netbook with a nine-cell battery that MSI claims is good more than 15 hours of battery life.
Of course, you won't be playing Crysis on it. Bejeweled, maybe. It comes with an Atom Z530 CPU running at 1.6GHz, 1GB of RAM, Intel GMA500 integrated graphics and a 10-inch LCD screen with a resolution of just 1024x600. Some netbooks have added GPUs to make up for the lack of CPU performance, but that draws power.
The Wind U110 weighs just 3.2 pounds and is just 1.24 inches thick. It has a 160GB HDD a built-in high definition Webcam, speakers, a built-in microphone and 802.11 b/g/n wireless support, plus Bluetooth.
MSRP is $430, you can get it from Newegg for $399.
