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.Read more ›
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!
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.Read more ›

Poor quality. Had nothing but problems. Died after a year and a half. Extremely poor tech support. As the saying goes "you get what you pay for".Published on December 4, 2013 by gj90079
Too bad it runs WINDOWS - any version of WINDOWS. Yes, the hardware is fine, only the operating system is the disappointment.Published on December 1, 2013 by Bobby GRASP
Not much you can really ask for from a netbook in terms of computing power. It has served its purpose well and battery life is still going strong even after constant use.Published on September 1, 2011 by TechTron
