For travellers — or anyone who wants to work for long periods of time away from a power outlet — the MSI Wind U is perfect.
The main purpose of the redesign was to reduce costs and the Wind U is very affordable, but that price also comes with RAM that can’t be upgraded and a battery life that is on the lower end of six cell netbook models.
