Ergonomically, the MSI has a decent keyboard with good feel and tactile response. I am not a touch typer, but I am quick and accurate on the MSI. The only downside is the small size of the period (.) comma (,), and backspace keys, all of which are 1/2 sized. The trackpad is small but usable and I have had no trouble with the "rocker" (single bar) mouse button. I found the trackpad and the buttons to be better on the MSI than on the HP.
Performance so far is fine, using Word, Excel, and IE. Wireless performance has been fine and it is also a quiet machine, with only the faintest humming sound.
All in all, I think I have found what I have been looking for, a nice, lightweight, capable computer that cuts down on the size, weight, and cost of taking a laptop on the road and to meetings. The first road test will be the end of next week and I am looking forward to having the MSI with me.
Now if Apple would only make something this size....
FIVE WEEK UPDATE:
I have now had the MSI for about five weeks and remain very satisfied. I have used it on road trips to NJ, on-campus at meetings, and even at my son's swimming meet.Read more ›
For an extra $30, the MSI Wind 432 is a winner. The MSI is a half inch wider than the Acer but the depth is identical. In fact, the Acer may be a tad deeper with the 6 cell battery. The larger keyboard on the MSI is much nicer and comparatively, the 10" screen feels huge.
The trackpad on the MSI is better than the Acer with with buttons located on the bottom. The MSI does not support scrolling on the trackpad. The Acer does but it's functionality is marginal at best.
The MSI has integrated Bluetooth the Acer does not. Also, the MSI supports 802.11 draft N where the Acer does not.
Bottom line, for an extra $30 you get a 10" screen vs. 8.9", integrated Bluetooth, better orientation of trackpad buttons and 802.11 draft N. Upgrading the MSI is easier from what I have read and is capable of 2 gigs vs. 1.5 on the Acer.
I am not bashing the Acer. It is a very nice machine and it's build quality is very solid. If you are buying the netbook for everyday use and not as a novelty, the additional screen real estate and larger keyboard are really nice.
The MSI is not well balanced. The unit is weighted toward the back. When on my lap, it has a tendency to fall backwards.
Overall, this unit rocks and I highly recommend it.
With all the glowing reviews of the Samsung NC10, I returned the MSI and purchased the Samsung. Nice build quality on the NC10, heavier but better balanced than the MSI. The wireless card is the same Atheros used in the Acer. I did not think to research this before I bought it.Read more ›
PROS: EVERYTHING except cons.
CONS: slow webcam, crappy speakers.
Review: I've used it for almost 2 weeks now and I love it. Removed all unneeded software. Installed software I'd use (Firefox, Chrome, Winamp, MS Office 07, Adobe Lightroom, K-Lite Codec pack, windows blinds, and some other stuff and all windows updates). When I got my 2gig stick ram (crucial) few days later, I updated BIOS to 109 and then installed ram. Updated Bios gave me option to disable onboard memory so I could use 2gb crucial ram. It also gave me option to overclock up to 1.9gHz. So everything runs smoothly, but I didnt like how the webcam worked when I used skype, it's slow but not too bad. Speakers are really bad, but with headphones it sounds really good (has equalizer software). 6 cell battery lasts at least 3 hours on heavy use and up to around 6 hours on very light use, but not 90 minutes like previous review says. Keyboard is fine, I'm a touch typer so I already got used to it. Some people complaint about touch pad and one piece mouse button, well it works good for me. Also I dont really like glossy covers, but its ok, I can put some cool graphics skin on it.
So overall, this netbook is great and its not comparable to regular notebooks, so its ok for it to have small resolution, no optical drive, small speakers etc. If you're looking for a netbook (at the time of this review) for around this price GET THIS MSI WIND.

Most reliable computer I ever owned, including desktops. Amazingly durable. It only recently died after 6 years and that was most likely my fault. Read morePublished 11 months ago by silikon
