Battle of the breeze: MSI Wind versus MacBook Air

We've been eating the crazy-pills again. Today, we woke up and decided we'd do another mental comparison -- the MSI Wind versus the MacBook Air

Remember back in the day when we went nuts and compared a Samsung Q1 Ultra to an Apple Newton? We've been eating the crazy pills again. Today, we woke up and decided we'd do another mental comparison -- the MSI Wind versus the similarly gusty MacBook Air.

Okay, so one costs £1,300 and the other costs £320, but to hell with it. They're both laptops, they're both ultraportable, they both have keyboards and screens, and they're both so gorgeous they cause random strangers to accost you in the street, demanding to know where you got them from. And you can make fart gags about their names -- that's all the reason we need.

So which is best? The great silver hope from Apple, or the dirt-cheap Eee rip-off? Over the next few pages, we'll take a look at their design, usability, specification, and any special powers that'll help us decide which one blows the most.

Yes, we already know it's not fair, but whatcha gonna do? Click through, that's what. -Rory Reid
