"Small and light Netbook MSI Wind U100"

In my opnion this little thing is very useful and helpful but only in work. How do I put it. Let's start from the begining.
1. I bought MSI Wind about 4 month's ago. For first sight it's small, light and convinient. It's rather created for buissnes women. It has own etui and it fits to a medium size handbag.
2. Keyboard is the same as in standard notebooks.
3. Another plus is that it has Microsoft Windows XP or if you prefer Linux.
4.It has a bluetooth, Wireless, card reader, 3 USB, internet camera and microphon
5. Battery hold about 3,5 hours. Top up battery you need about 2 hours.
6. It has LED panel, but it is very delicate. I had one problem with it but i have a gurantee door-to-door and that's why it were repaid in very short time.
7. I like playing mmorpg like LineAge II or world of warcraft and I was affraid that my favorite games could not work in this little thing. But I was in shock that games are working without any problems.
8. Last thing that come in my mind is a Touchpad. I don't like it. It's very sensitive and because of that it's hard to control.

Ok and in the end i would like to describe what hardware it has.
- Intel Atom CPU N270 1,60 GHz
- Grafik Card Mobile Intel 945 Express Chipset Family
- Network adapter card Realtek RTL8102E Famil PCI-E Fast Ethernet NIC an also 1T2R Mini Card Wireless Adapter

In short I can recommend for anyone who whant a light and good netbook for work :)

    You should try and write more of your own opinions instead of just copying spec lists.
