    3.0 out of 5 stars MSI wind u160 review 24 Jan 2011
    I bought this machine after doing a reasonable amount of research looking at reviews and others feedback on the MSI wind u160. There were both good and bad reviews that seemed to address the machine well and were not one sided.

    Because of the reviews I had mine upgraded to a 2Gb of ram by the suppliers of the machine and I do think this has made a difference.

    My review of this machine after owning it for 6 months is, nice machine a good size and weight the battery life is excellent, it picks up Wi-Fi really well, performers all the tasks I've asked of it in good time boots up really quickly, the screen brightness is easy to adjust, the bag you get with it is well made too.

    the bad bits now these are my own personal niggles with the wind u160, the touch pad is very sensitive your typing away and all of a sudden your text appears somewhere else in the text you are typing in, I first thought it was because I am heavy handed or clumsy but this does not seem to be the case, but a very sensitive touchpad.

    The mouse button just doesn't feel in the right place to me, a friend has an Acer one and those mouse buttons seem much nicer to use.

    The bumpy touchpad When I bought it I thought I'll get used to this, I haven't it is still annoying sadly.

    The power connection on the left hand side half way down the side it is a really shame it was put here it would have been much better had it been put in the pivot on the left hand side of the machine, the power button is really nicely placed in the pivot on the right hand side it is a pity the didn't utilise the other pivot for the power jack.

    Accessories, batteries, 12vdc transformer so you can use it in a car are more difficult to find than for normal.

    It's alovely wee netbook, but the keyboard has a horrible habit of moving the cursor somewhere else while you're typing - so you have to be super-careful not to touch the very sensitive mouse pad in mid type.
    A robust computer which is going strong after a year and great battery life.
