The U200 Is MSI's Upcoming 12-Inch Netbookish Laptop

Just like we've seen manufacturers like Dell push netbooks to the 12-inch barrier, Engadget China spotted a new offering from MSI that looks to follow suit.

The Vista system features a 12-inch (1366 x 768) LED screen, GMA 4500M integrated graphics, 802.11n Wi-Fi, 2GB RAM, and 250GB of storage, when equipped with a 3-cell battery, the system slims down to just 3lbs. But the battery life can't be fantastic in that configuration.

The price is estimated somewhere around $700. We're guessing that MSI will drop that figure if/when we see the U200 pop up in the US. Hmm, maybe we should make that, "hoping" MSI will drop that figure if/when we see the U200 pop up in the US. [Engadget China via Engadget]
