15+ Hours Battery Life
 
MSI Wind U110 Eco NetbookMSI has launched it's latest Wind netbook, the 10 inch U110 Eco. Priced at $399.99 in the US (roughly £250 here) it is rather pricey for a standard 10 inch netbook - but it isn't. It boasts a 9 cell battery, which in turn yields longer battery life. The U110 Eco is equipped with an silverthorne-based Intel Atom Z530 working at 1.6GHz, paired up with Intel's SCH US15W chipset. This is slightly slower than the diamondville-based 1.6GHz Atom N270, although it uses less power.
 
It has a 10-inch screen with a 1024x600 resolution and features 1GB of DDR2 memory, 160GB hard drive, 802.11bgn WiFi, Bluetooth and 10/100Mbps LAN. Rounding it off are, three USB 2.0 ports, a multi-card reader, single VGA output and a 1.3 megapixel webcam. The larger than normal, 9-cell, 7800mAh battery according to MSI "provides powe for about 15+ hours". As usual, we are skeptical about the claims, but MSI are usually pretty close and with a battery of this size, it can't be that far off.

Mul.
If anyone is interested in knowing what core their Athlon II X4 620 is before installing it:

The clue is in the first string of characters and the two character string that directly follows. If the first string contains an AC substring and the following string contains the same it's a Deneb core, however if it's "AD" it is a L3 cacheless Propus core.

E.g.-

CACZC AC 0933 DPMW <-- Deneb (L3 Cache Disabled)
CADZC AD 0933 DPMW <-- Propus (No L3 Cache)

Being able to unlock 6mb L3 cache is quite a bonus and combined with a 2.60GHz clockspeed and a £75 pricetag, it could be a bit of a bargain. :)

On a similar note, these are now on sale.
