They are legion in the Atom netbooks. Rarely has a processor as is unanimous on one segment. With virtually no choice: for a netbook, it's Atom N270 at 1.6 GHz and enough. In other words, when there is a netbook running another architecture, our eyes light up with curiosity. With the same question: what happens to AMD challenger to distract the Atom?
In the MSI U210 netbook, AMD Athlon MV-40 Neo is clocked, as the N270, at 1.6 GHz. The AMD certainly supports 64-bit and virtualization technologies, but it must be admitted that this does not really count in a netbook.
MSI is not the first comer in the world of netbooks, but after a wind that had caused a sensation, it must be admitted that the mark was somewhat left behind by his two brothers Taiwanese Asus and Acer.
With a simple design and roundness, the U210 is a nice machine that has the format with 11.6 inches. Anything bigger than a basic netbook, this size gives a much better typing comfort (wider keyboard) and reading (screen resolution of 1366x768 pixels instead of 1024x600 pixels).
