Weighing in at just 2.6 lbs, MSI designed the Wind to be lightweight and ultra mobile, without sacrificing convenience or performance. The Wind features an ergonomically designed keyboard that is only 20% smaller than of a full sized keyboard, with keys spaced a comfortable 0.68 inches apart. The Windows version of the Wind features an 80G / 2.5" SATA hard drive, which further sets it apart from other ultra portable notebooks, whose manufacturers have compromised memory capacity to save space. The Wind’s display features embedded LED power-saving backlight technology, which provides superior color quality and brightness. This innovative notebook also comes standard with a 1.3M webcam, Bluetooth capabilities, 3 USB ports and a 4-in-1 card reader.

Updated 5/16: Still love this computer, but the battery life is not that good. However, the 3 cells are around because of the fire at the LG battery plant in Korea. Still, some of the Dell units that are bigger, only give you 4 cells as a started. So, I am not complaining. Still can't run linux wifi, which can be overcome by changing wifi card. But that will void warranty
I sold my Wind, I bought the Asus EEE pc 1000H. Bigger battery, and brighter screen. But I can upgrade the memory to 2G and the warranty is not voided. The 1000h flys with 2g. The wifi drivers still do not work with Linux, but you can plug in an external usb adapter and it works in Linux
Now for the downside. It came with just a Fast Start page which was nothing more than an explanation of what the buttons were! It had a CD with the manual on it for every language but English! I spent over eight hours trying to get it to connect to my wireless router. After four hours I read other reviews of the machine and found that the wireless modem was turned off when shipped and you had to push the buttons they show you on the fast start sheet to turn on all of its features! So if you buy it, save yourself some time by pushing the series of buttons e.g. Fn 2 thru Fn 11 to turn everything on. Nowhere was this explained! It is a wireless N modem supposedly backwardly compatible with G series routers. After trying IE and Firefox and several conversations with my internet provider and router vendor over a four hour period I gave up and returned the unit. MSI has no weekend support hours. I never did get it to connect to the internet. Perhaps it was defective. Perhaps other units would work fine. It is a quick well designed unit I liked very much. If only it worked. It did connect to the web when connected directly to the router but that is not how I intended to use it. Most hotels today have wireless internet connectivity.

Whats on the bad side of this laptop is the customer service. They have a terrible phone system. You can follow every key prompt and still someone has to transfer you when you finally reach an operator. Thats after waiting for 30 min also. The reason why I had to call them was because the battery went kaput not even a week of owning it. Now this might be just my case but I have never had anything go out that quick before. I am still waiting for the laptop battery now.
Neither one is 100% perfect, but I am happy I switched.
