MSI U270 is a lot like EEE PC in looks, with the portion of the lid having a glossy finish with special coating to resist smudge stains from the fingers. The new netbook has two screen size options, one with an 11.6 inch and the other 12.1 inch. The 16 inch screen will demonstrate a 1024 X 600 resolution than the usual 1366 X 768 making the icons appear a bit too big. The battery casing in the netbook, located at the bottom is slightly bulging out. But this doesn't create much problem at the same time elevates the netbook to the user's convenience. The netbook weighs 1.3 Kg which is comparatively heavy. The laptop also has a bit bulky sides and is definitely not thin. The connectivity of the new MSI netbook is enabled with three USB ports of version 3.0. Other options like VGA, HDMI, card readers is preloaded in the netbook. The device has an efficient micro phone and a standard head jack. The screen view becomes slightly difficult with the screen having excess glossy finish. The new chiclet keyboard is very convenient to use. The track pad though is quite small for an 11.6 inch netbook.
The latest netbook is powered well with AMD's Zacate E-350 dual core assisted by a 1.6 GHz rated APU. The netbook has a memory storage of 2GB DDR3 which can be later expanded to a 8GB.The default specification of the hardware can be a 320 GB but can be upgraded to a 500 GB if needed. The expandability options are always open in MSI U270. The edition comes with a preloaded Windows 7 Home Premium.
The power management of the netbook enables the system with a continuous usage up to 5 hours if in power saving mode. Some other advantages of the netbook is that it is comfortable to work with it. It doesn't get too hot while working with it.
The netbook is definitely worth its cost. MSI U270 is priced at Rs 22,999 in India. The competition for MSI U270 gets really tight considering the fact that there are definitely other cheaper laptops in the market with improved features.
