    Having recently announced the Wind12 U200 ultra-portable, MSI is readying its twin based on the AMD Yukon ULV platform. While the U200 uses an Intel Penryn ULV SU3500 processor, the U210 will feature AMD Athlon Neo MV-40 1.6 GHz. Two sub-variants of this, bring about slight changes in the specs. The U210-002 is priced at 399€, and packs 1 GB of memory, 160 GB of storage, and Windows XP Home. The 449€ U210-010 on the other hand, sports 2 GB of memory, 250 GB of storage, and Windows Vista Home Premium. The Wind12 series consists of 12.1" ultra-portables pack the most essential features with a touch of luxury, in its 297x 190 x 24.5~31 mm chassis, tipping the scales at 1.4 kg.

    Intel wont like this: the Wind12 "U200" is an intel celeron but the "U210" is AMD. LOL. Same clamshell. Different CPU. AMD gets the one-up-manship.

    What's the IGP on this? And what wattage do the chip and chipset consume?

    That IGP is a "remake" (on a modern low-power process) of the original old 1200 series I think, so it should be better on power saving but not better performance. Pretty ok for an ultraportable tho...

    It's my current IGP, better than Intel's offering but the wind would have sold like hot cakes if they dropped a 780G with a HD 3200
