Very nice notebook. Why I only voted this good... Firstly, if you plan on using CD/DVD's where you're at, you'll need a portable DVD player, which could be more clutter to carry around with you. Secondly, the screen size is a down point for me, personally. When I worked on an Excel document, I discovered that the screen doesn't show the whole document, and it actually moves with your mouse if you move to the corners. I guess it would have looked stupid if the notebook actually fitted the document in the small screen area. But I found it a bit frustrating. Otherwise, also, very robust computer, stylish and eye catching.

Product Information : MSI WIND U100

Manufacturer's product description

The U100 has selected a 10" wide LCD display as oppose to the typical smaller sizes to provide better comfort while viewing or reading. In addition, the high resolution can relief concerns of the full display of web pages while browsing, giving you the freedom when exploring the Internet. The U100 is embedded with the LED power-saving backlight technology in providing better color fullness and brightness, elevating the total quality of imagery. Furthermore, the lower usage of power can offer a longer operating time. The U100 is equipped with the capability of magnifying text within software, so you may magnify any of the words displayed on the monitor freely, making it easier when you are viewing photos, editing or reading documents.
