MSI Netbook Gets 15-Hour Battery Life
Sep 25, 2009 6:01 PM
Earlier this week hardware manufacturer MSI announced additional details regarding its now-available Wind U110 Eco netbook, including an improved nine-cell battery.
MSI revealed the U110 Eco netbook back in March, and the initial listed specifications caused some confusion. At first the spec sheet listed the U110 Eco as having an ATI Mobility Radeon HD320, although it was quickly established that this was not the case. Instead, the netbook uses the Intel GMA 500 integrated graphics chipset. The earlier spec also listed that the device contained a six-cell battery, but MSI now also offers a nine-cell battery as an option.
Several sources claim that, with the right settings, the new nine-cell battery can provide up to fifteen hours of power, however MSI's website states that the XP and Vista capable netbook can last for around nine hours on battery. In either case, it's still an impressive number.
Beyond the appealing battery performance the ten-inch, lightweight (3.2 pounds) netbook also packs in a 160GB hard drive, 1GB of memory, 3 USB ports, Bluetooth, and a built-in webcam.
You can get the Wind U110 Eco now for just under $400 (Rs. 20,000 approx.).

Thanks a lot, guys.

Having a reasonably undiluted Irish heritage, I can attest that not all of us have the fabled "gift of gab." So when U2's Bono recently mentioned to Time's Catherine Mayer that the band and Apple were working on a new digital music format, you have to credit it not to his Irish origin but rather to the notion that the man's made a career of speaking his mind.
