MSI to boost Wind netbook’s battery life

Posted August 4, 2008 by admin in News

Battery life is important to the new category of netbooks coming out. The new breed of mini-laptop is designed for mobility, normally weighing around 1 kilogram (2.2 lbs), with 7-inch to 10-inch LCD screens, and able to connect wirelessly to the Internet via Wi-Fi or 3G (third generation mobile telecommunications) networks. They are also less expensive than the average notebook PC, at between US$199 and $599. The longer battery life increases their mobility by freeing people from plugs.

The new Wind laptops coming available in August will also add pink to the current line-up of black and white colors.

MSI’s Web site also finally acknowledges a version of Wind carrying a Novell’s Suse Linux OS instead of Windows XP. People searching for the mini-laptop will have to turn to page two on the Web page to have a look. Unfortunately, it appears the Wind-Linux will come with a 3-cell battery instead of the 6-cell batteries on the devices coming out in August.
