MSI has officially released this year’s showpiece, the 12.1" Wind12
U230, which features AMD’s 2nd Generation Ultrathin Platform, a
dual-core processor, and Microsoft’s latest operating system, Windows
7, all driven by the most progressive mobile operating software
available. MSI Notebook Marketing Director Sam Chern stated that the
U230 maintains the distinguishing features of the Wind12 U Series, with
superior ultra-thin mobility and a 12.1" display for an expansive
viewing experience. The ultra thin, power-saving dual core processor
architecture further provides consumers with a performance experience
on par with standard notebook computers.

Dual Breakthroughs in Processing and Display Exceed Expectations
HD support and double the processing performance:
The MSI Wind12 U230 notebook has a cinematic 16:9 LED backlit display,
a footprint smaller than a sheet of A4 paper (297×190mm), a total
weight of 1.3kg including battery, and an exterior that resembles the
portability and elegance of a netbook. With AMD’s 2nd Generation
Ultrathin Platform with a dual-core processor, processing performance
is more than double compared to traditional lightweight notebooks.
Compared to the previous generation model, display performance has
increased more than 3-fold while fully supporting HD video output!

60% less power consumption than standard notebooks:
More importantly, the Wind12 U230 offers equally low power consumption
and energy saving characteristics, with around 60% less power
consumption than standard notebooks. MSI’s refined craftsmanship has
optimized energy efficiency and mobility to provide consumers with the
high performance of standard notebooks and expansive field of vision at
the same time, all with the slimness and portability of a netbook.

Twofold Ultra-Long Battery Life*
MSI’s exclusive ECO Engine technology:
The MSI Wind12 U230 integrates the characteristics of netbooks and
standard notebook computers to provide a large display, high
performance in a lightweight 1.3kg frame. MSI’s ECO Engine technology,
an LED backlit display, and AMD’s 2nd Generation Ultrathin Platform
give the U230’s amazing battery performance—over twice the battery
endurance of traditional 12" notebooks!

Extended mobile experience:
MSI’s exclusive ECO Engine technology lets users select power
management modes based on specific power requirements. The five modes,
Gaming, Movie, Presentation, Document, and Turbo Battery, offer
flexible battery use to extend battery endurance to the greatest extent
possible. Testing proves that the Wind12 U230, using a power-saving
mode setting, can be used for up to 4 hours so you can enjoy an
extended, high performance mobile experience.
