Netbook MSI Wind 100

Netbook MSI Wind 100

After the screen on my laptop broke and I didnt want to shell out close to 100 bucks for a replacement screen i went shopping for a netbook.

I found a nice deal on an MSI wind 100 on ebay. I also picked up a power supply and a new 9 cell battery for the bad boy.

I am surprised how fast Windows 7 Ultimate and Ubuntu 10.04 Desktop run on this low power machine. I do think another stick of ram to bring this to 2gb would be a great help.

With the 9cell battery I can pretty much do a full day (8hrs) worth of surfing on this little thing

There are also lots of infor on the web about getting Mac OSX installed. i might try that soon, but I have alot of other projects to do first.
