MSI has launched new netbooks in its MSI Wind L series, which supposedly contain minor updates over their MSI Wind U series counterparts though they are identically priced in many cases. The model numbers are similar as well, with an extra zero being the only real difference between the two series and their models.
The latest models in the Wind L series include: MSI Wind L1300, L1350 and L2300. These sport minor upgrades to their near U series cousins, the MSI Wind U130, U135, and U230. Just like their respective Wind U series counterparts – the Wind L1350 features Window 7 Starter Edition, Intel Atom N450 1.66GHz processor, and 10-inch 1024×600 resolution display; the MSI Wind L2300 features Windows 7 Home Premium, AMD Athlon Neo MV-40 1.6GHz processor, and 12.1-inch 1366×768 resolution display, while the MSI Wind L1300 features Windows XP Home, Intel Atom N450 1.66GHz processor, and a 10-inch 1024×600 resolution display – making both series very similar, where differences include body colour options.
A major difference between the Wind L series and Wind U series is in screen types, where the Wind L series has more energy-efficient LED screens, and the Wind U series has LCD screens. An exception to this rule can be found with the MSI Wind L1350 and the MSI Wind U135, which both have LED screens. The price range of the MSI Wind L Series varies from $329.99 for the Wind L1300 (160GB HDD version) netbook to the $479.99 Wind L2300 (available only in a 250GB HDD) netbook.
