[NBN]Hands on: 11.6″ MSI U270 Running AMD’s Zacate

MSI had a press event in Taipei where it showed off an early preview of some of its CES wares to the local media. Among the devices on display by far the most interesting was the 11.6 inch MSI U270 which was running on an AMD development platform. A Rep from MSI let us know that it was in fact running on the 1.6- GHz Zacate Processor from AMD. The unit has a very thin bezel around its 1366 x 768 resolution display. As for other specs we know they are planning a 320-500GB HDD and up to 4GB of RAM.

AMD is right on the money with Zacate, even better actually considering that it performs at 5450 levels with Athlon II performance (very nearly). Intel Atom, eat your heart out, AMD is the new king in this market segment. And yes, 12 hours battery life is entirely possible with a nice and low 18W TDP biggrin.gif

My thoughts exactly.

I'll specifically looking at this model. My MSI netbook has been taking an absolute beating for almost 2 years with no consequences whatsoever. I've been quite amazed how durable it is, and the design looks nearly identical.

Want. If not this then Lenovo's.

i5-level performance, decent IGP(slightly faster than HD4200series and i3/i5 IGP), and good battery life, all in a light and not overly compact package, and under $400, epic do want.

If this is around $350, I'm definitely getting it.
