Micro-Star International's (MSI) Wind netbook was first announced at CeBIT 2008. WIND is an acronym that stands for "Wi-Fi Network Device" laying the focus on wireless networking.
The MSI Wind has a 10" LCD screen with a maximum resolution of 1024x600px. The Linux version comes with 512 MB RAM extendable up to 2 GB, an 80 GB 2.5" hard drive, and an Intel Atom 45-nm processor running at 1.6 GHz. The 3-cell battery lasts for up 2.5 hours.
The Linux version of the MSI Wind runs SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop which comes with open source applications like the Mozilla Firefox Web browser, the e-mail client Thunderbird, and the free office suite OpenOffice.org. This Linux distribution is well suited for being used in mixed Linux / Windows environments.
