Remember that MSI Wind U160 we first heard about awhile back? Well the little netbook is finally shipping. The little rigs biggest feature that will grab your attention is the claim of 15 hours of battery life. I have yet to see a machine actually offer what the manufacturer claims in battery life in the real world.
The U160 uses the power sipping Intel Atom N450 CPU and features the MSI Eco mode setting to extend battery life. The machine can be had in sparkling gold or black, presumably this is the gold here though it looks brown.
