"It's not especially powerful though, as borne out by our tests that recorded a WorldBench 6 score of just 35. Then again, it's longevity that counts for a portable you'll want to run all day. And that's been exactly the achilles' heel of the MSI Wind U100, and its related models, as it was only supplied with a small 3-cell battery good for almost 2.5 hours of use. MSI had always planned a longer-lived 6-cell option but cited worldwide shortages on its initial tardiness to ship with the larger battery.
Larger storage, better networking and the all-important extended battery life make the revised U100 a winner. Combined with the more attractive choice of colours, free carry bag in the box, and an extended warranty to 2 years, we feel the original MSI Wind U100 is not just the first Wind, it also breezes into first place."
