Great computer, not as powerful as my desktop, but perfect for travel.

No matter how careful I am to prevent my palm in touching the pad, it's really difficult to avoid it.
One unit has a wireless device that keeps losing its settings and intermittently disconnects.

I bought this for a friend and have been setting up software and updates for them over the past couple of days. I think the styling of the HP Mini is much nicer than the MSI Winds, but I'm getting battery life of 4 hours and change on this for a much better price. I think most folks can put up with that.

The gray, angular design really evokes some of HPs designs from about 3 years ago, like if an HP business notebook and the MSI Wind U100 had a baby together. Or if an MSI Wind had a baby with another MSI Wind, but it turned out the biological father was really an HP business notebook. Anyhow, this goes to say that while this isn't a Vivienne Tam fashion statement, it doesn't come across looking like a toy either, as some of the other netbooks do. It feels solid, even without crazy aluminum unibody casing or something like that.

I will say that there are a few quirks in the unboxing process that caught me by surprise. One is the the boot-up/install time. You turn the thing on, and it sits there for 15+ minutes installing Windows, I guess, onto a 30 GB partition of the hard drive. The other partition is ~100 GB, and labelled D:, but this is non-obvious to novice users who might wonder where the heck the rest of their drive space went.

The other unboxing/first-time use thing is that the WiFi and camera have to be turned on with a combination of the Fn key and the top row of F-keys. I'm sure this was in the paper insert somewhere in the box, but it wasn't obvious to me, and it would've been nicer to just have a big fat button with a lighted symbol of what it was supposed to turn on, e.g. a webcam or a wireless/radio symbol. By the way, the webcam image is nothing to write home about, but it does ok for Skype etc.

I've owned my MSI Wind, w/6 cell battery, since November, and have no complaints (but, one suggestion). After traveling with notebook computers for at least the past 15 years, it is great to finally have an alternative that weighs less then 3 lbs, has a long battery life, and runs all the software that I normally use on the road.

One suggestion for MSI -- ship the netbook w/the Wi Fi turned on, or at least a card with a hint to his Fn F11 to turn it on. I only found out by finding that hint on the internet. Several friends who saw my MSI Wind went out and bought one of their own. They all like 'em... but all called to ask how to turn on the Wi Fi!

Great computer, not as powerful as my desktop, but perfect for travel. And, the price just keeps getting better!

The MSI Wind is a perfectly serviceable netbook, with a nice 10 inch screen, massive (for the genre) hard drive, great keyboard (with nearly full-size layout), and it is very lightweight. Battery life is adequate, but not quite the battery life you would expect from a 6-Cell Battery. The one flaw is that it is not possible to add additional RAM to this unit -- the prior version of the Wind is set up to allow the owner to add an additional 1GB stick of SO-DIMM. I ordered this unit before there had been any reviews. Had I known that it would not take additional RAM, I would not have ordered it. That said, if it is unlikely you would ever add RAM yourself, this netbook may be exactly what you are looking for.

I received my netbook yesterday, and so far I am very pleased with it. First, let me say, I am NOT a techie kind of girl. I purchased this machine because I am starting a masters program and I wanted something I could carry in my book bag. It's connecting well to the wireless router in my house and I'd say the internet speed (on Chrome browser)is absolutely as fast as my desktop. The keyboard is a smidge smaller than a traditional laptop, but I can still touch type with it.Web pages are surprisingly easy to view- I expected it to be far more limited. I did not upgrade the memory from one to two gig yet but I have had no problem with performance even with more than one application open at a time. I am not loving formatting a document on this screen, but then I am using office 2007 (not included on the MSI Wind) for the first time and kind of hating the new program, so I don't think I can really blame the computer for that. Things that aren't so great- the track pad is pretty bad with difficult to click right and left buttons- I plan to use a usb mouse. Also the speakers aren't great quality. All things considered, for the price and the portability, I am impressed with this little computer.

When I bought my MINI 10, I wasn't sure how to load programs on it. I do not have my computers networked, and I was under the impression that it would connect to my computer via a USB port . . . obviously, I'm not a computer IT person . . . but I do love new gadgets! It was very EASY to boot up. Everything practically loaded itself! I found that by copying my program CDs to my flash drive, they were simply a "click and install" option to load them on the Mini. I thought I was going to have more difficulty, but so far loading programs has been pretty easy. The Wi-fi is REALLY easy to use. If you set it up to automatically search for available connections, it's very convenient wherever you are at! I needed to have the XP OS so my Palm could sync with my Palm Desktop (I use it for my calendar and appointments). The program loaded very easily. I still need to sit down and plug in the Palm cradle to see if it will work, but I'm confident that it will not be difficult. In any case, I love working on my MINI! I will have to say that I put out $20 for a wireless mouse . . .I just prefer it to the pad on the laptop (any laptop for that matter!). Haven't run into any problems yet. . . time will tell all! I would definitely reccomend the MINI to anyone who wants quick access and has good sight! I'm sure that the small sized screen would be difficult for someone with bad sight!

6 week update - LOVE the mini10 W.I.N.D., but NOT the lack of WARRANTY from MSI! The 10-inch WIND is a great little computer for the price. I'm a basic user, meaning that I usually use it for internet, to sync my PALM, watch converted movies, and play games (simple word games - not high action games). It's convenient to carry and is all around EASY to use.
