Now that the MSI's most recent netbook is available for sale in the UK, we thought we'd get a little closer to see how well the Wind U160 lives up to the popular brand.

The gold chassis and sub-1-inch profile is certainly as pleasing to the eye as the 1kg mass and staggering 15-hour battery life claims are to its mobility credentials and, despite the fact that netbook's moment in the sun may be waning, the Wind U160 still looks every bit the quality product from our brief play.

It's available for just over £300 and packs 1GB RAM, a 1.33GHz N450 Atom CPU, 250GB of HDD storage and all the connectivity you could need.
