CNET Crave has a gallery up and a hands-on of MSI’s Wind. With new cheapie subnotebooks on their way from Dell and Asus and the Eee already a success, it’s got to stand out–and it does

This could be the best mini laptop so far — it’s comfortable to use, has a good display, is super-affordable and promises great performance.

We like: Screen; keyboard; value for money.

We don’t like: Mouse trackpad could be bigger; no integrated 3G.

    Why a trackpad? The little nubbins are so much more efficient and work so much better.

    Am I the only one who’s annoyed that all these new mini-notebooks only have D-Sub connectors for video-out?

    I can almost understand not offering a DVI connector, as those are bigger, but isn’t there another connector that would provide a signal that can easily be converted (via a simple, cheap adaptor) to DVI or HDMI?

  3. Rob Beschizza says:

    Yeah, damn right. Just give us HDMI and adapters!

    I truly dislike mouse trackpads. Are there any of these things that *don’t* give 1/3 of their keyboard space over to a trackpad?

    1024×600 kills it for me.
    I’m not interested in any resolution below 1280×768.
