www.netbooknews.com MSI had a press event in Taipei where it showed off an early preview of some of its CES wares to the local media. Among the devices on display by far the most interesting was the 11.6 inch MSI U270 which was running on an AMD development platform. A Rep from MSI let us know that it was in fact running on the 1.6- GHz Zacate Processor from AMD. The unit has a very thin bezel around its 1366 x 768 resolution display. As for other specs we know they are planning a 320-500GB HDD and up to 4GB of RAM. The U270 also offers i USB 3.0, 2 x USB 2.0, VGA out, HDMI, SD card reader and the standard audio jack, ethernet & kensington lock. The finish of the unit is very glossy and a finger print magnet just like its screen. They chiclet keyboard was very well built and offered little flex when typing. We don't know much else about this subnotebook from MSI, no release dates or prices. Perhaps we will find out a bit more during CES in a few days.
