Photos: Hands-on with the MSI Wind

It's super-portable and once you see the confirmed specs--and the extra tricks up its sleeve--you'll be craving one, too.

We've just had an exclusive hands-on with the MSI Wind, which we liked the look of in March, and by golly it's good. So good, in fact, that it could take the throne from the Asus Eee PC as the best mini laptop on the planet.

It's ever so slightly larger than an Eee PC, and slightly heavier at 1.3 kilograms, but don't let that put you off. It's still super-portable and once you see the confirmed specs--and the extra tricks up its sleeve--you'll be craving one, too.

We can't talk about the CPU yet--it's top secret--but we can tell you it's very quick and very power-efficient. What's more, the CPU can be overclocked by about 20 percent using a dedicated button and MSI's TurboDrive Engine, which we saw on the TurboBook GX600. The Wind will also sport 1GB of RAM, an 80GB mechanical hard drive, 802.11b/g Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, three (count 'em) USB ports, a D-Sub video output, a 4-in-1 memory card reader, and a 3-cell battery with a claimed life of 3-4 hours.
