It may just seem like yesterday that MSI was introducing its Wind U160 netbook at CES, but the company's now already back with an updated model in time for Computex: the Wind U160DX.

The original MSI Wind is so two years ago, but an Insanely Wind forum member with the handle of ac0ff33 figured out a way to make it so two years from now.

MSI's latest (and arguably greatest) 12.1-inch netbook just popped official earlier this month, and already it's making the rounds at various shows.

We see what MSI is doing. First, they released a followup to the Intel-packin' X-Slim X600 with an otherwise-identical AMD-based machine called the X610. And now they're making the MSI Wind U200 available with an AMD processor as well. And what do you think they're calling it? the U210, of course....
