Don't call it a netbook. MSI's latest sits just out of the low-end category with its 12.1-inch, 1,366 x 768 resolution screen, roomy "ergonomic de-stress" keyboard, and 1.6GHz AMD Athlon Neo X2, a chip that should best Intel's Atom offerings of the same spec -- at least slightly. A mere four hours of battery life is also decidedlynon-netbooky, but beyond that the usual suspects are here, including a 1.3-megapixel webcam and 160GB hard drive. It weighs in at 2.9lbs and will be running Windows 7 Home Premium (a genuine copy, MSI seems proud to point out) whenever it ships. We'd guess soon.
