Love is in the air for MSI Wind U100

For Valentine's Day, MSI will give away 15 limited-edition Wind U100 models featuring a rosy, heartsy design.

Dear Shmoopy, hope you like pink! MSI

To celebrate that upcoming day of Hallmark love, MSI will give away 15 limited-edition Wind U100 models featuring a rosy, heartsy design. Depending on your significant other's tolerance for pink, he or she will either want to smother you in kisses or possibly break up with you should you manage to snag one.

The Netbooks feature an Intel Atom N270 1.6G processor, Windows Home XP Home Edition, a 6-cell battery, and the same lightweight ultramobile design as the other U100 models. If you don't win, but still want one of these lovey dovey models, you can purchase one at MSI's Web site for $429.99. MSI says it will offer free shipping on all Valentine-edition Winds.

To enter the contest, you just need to provide contact information and upload a picture of you and your Valentine between now and February 14. MSI will randomly choose 15 winners and announce them on the same site on February 17. MSI will also give his and her "My Valentine" 2GB USB flash drives to the first 100 participants.

But if you have an inkling your significant other would be less embarassed to ride the train clutching a teddy bear than to use a gadget like the one pictured above, you might want to consider something more along these lines .
