Default New MSI Wind Netbooks to cost 489 and 619

MSI has two new power efficient Wind netbooks with extended battery life. Dubbed U115 Hybrid and U110 ECO, the new pair of netbooks is based on Z530 Atom CPUs which should offer vastly superior battery life compared to N270/945 based units.

The U115 also boasts hybrid storage. Apart from the regular 160GB HDD, it packs an 8GB SSD which allows it to power down the HDD and save some juice. The ECO version relies solely on the HDD, but at least it ends up quite a bit cheaper.

Here's where things get quite ugly, as even the ECO is priced at 489, while the U115 Hybrid is listed at 619. This sounds too steep for such a netbook, and we think they will sell for quite a bit less once they hit the shelves.

Default

indeed way too expensive, €300 for entry, €400 max for fully equipped Netbook should be the limit, anything over that and you're better of with a 15" laptop for €550-600
