It works great, it's fast, no problems at all with internet, or even the bluetooth.

The only real problem is the keyboard, and the keyboard wouldn't be a problem if you could turn off certain hot-key combinations in windows.

It seems like just the slightly larger screen on the MSI makes a huge difference in viewing ease.

Let me start off by saying I have owned both of these laptops so I can make a good comparison.
I bought the Acer Aspire One about a month ago. It is very pretty and stylish. The battery life was almost seven hours and the keyboard keys were very responsive and had a nice feel to them. However it did have some problems. I noticed that the cooling fan on the Acer was abit loud and was noticably slower while using for internet than my other laptops.
Also about a day after I bought it you would hear a beep about once every 30-45 minutes from the system board so it had to be sent back as faulty.
I guess you are wondering if I am reviewing the Acer or the MSI at this point? Well I am reviewing both.
Now as for the MSI Wind. I received it a few days ago and yes it was more money but after using it for some time it was well worth it. The screen can display full web pages. It seems like just the slightly larger screen on the MSI makes a huge difference in viewing ease.
The battery last about 4.5-5 hrs on the MSI still very good and the keyboard is spaced better the the Acer but the keys are somewhat mushy and don't feel as responsive but can get used to it. I also found out that enen though both the MSI and Acer share the same cpu and memory size the MSI Wind was noticably fast in all respects including internet use. What I did not like about the MSI is that it is a little tippsy when on your lap if not carefull it could possibly tip over. That would be really bad.

PROS: MSI larger screen displays full web pages.
Screen is much easier to view than the Acer
Keys are spaced better than the Acer
Battery life is 4.

[[ASIN:B001LNUJ5Q MSI Wind U100-280US 10-Inch Netbook (1.6 GHz Intel Atom Processor, 1 GB RAM, 160 GB Hard Drive, 6 Cell Battery, XP Home) Pink]
I did some comparison particularly with the samsung n10 the biggest difference seem to be the keyboard, mainly the right shift key placement on the samsung (less awkward was the sentiment) and a tad longer battery life. But I find the Wind keyboard to be quite comfortable (especially for the difference in price). I will mainly be using this at home so battery life (extra 45 mins or so on samsung) is not a great issue for me either.

So far, I love my Wind and I really love the PINK.

I've had this machine for about 6 months and I really love it. I bought it for travel, but I used it while watching TV too. When I first turned it on I couldn't believe how fast and silent it was, and it doesn't generate much heat. It's started making a quiet grinding sound when I first turn it on, now, but that goes away after a few seconds.

The only real problem is the keyboard, and the keyboard wouldn't be a problem if you could turn off certain hot-key combinations in windows. But you can't, and the up-arrow is next to the shift key and it's very easy to hit them both, which highlights the text you've just entered and as you continue to type, boing, it's erased. There are other weird things that happen. I sometimes find myself out of the document completely, and I don't know why, and it's almost impossible to fill in a web form. I suspect some of the oddities are from accidentally brushing the tracking area, but I can't pine it down.

Certain apps won't work as the screen is too small. You can set the resolution to 1024x768, but then the whole screen scrolls. You have to scroll down to find the task bar, for example. It's best resolution is 1024x600. Yahoo always complains about the screen size, but I go ahead and use it and it works fine. Other apps give error messages and kill the whole system.

And the WIND is reasonably tough. I accidentally dropped it once, and the clicker bar in the tracking area fell off, but I put it back on and the system works just fine.
