Default 15-hour Netbook from MSI

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.engadget.com/2010/05/21/msi-rolls-out-wind-u160dx-netbook-with-15-hour-battery/' target='_blank'>http://www.engadget.com/2010/05/21/...5-hour-battery/</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"While it's outward appearance remains mostly the same, the netbook's internals have been upgraded across the board, including a new Atom N455 processor, some DDR3 memory, MSI's own "Turbo Drive Engine" and, last but not least, a 15-hour battery (aided in part by MSI's ECO power management system)."</em></p><p><em><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/dht/auto/1274554611.usr10.jpg" style="border: 1px solid #d2d2bb;" /></em></p><p>Looks mostly like the U160 model I posted on yesterday, but this model has been specially tweaked to maximize battery life. &nbsp;So much so that it is getting double the battery life at 15 hours. &nbsp;We'll have to wait for a full review to see if we are going to be paying a big premium or taking a major performance hit in exchange for the longevity. &nbsp;</p>
