MSI has been preparing to release this 12 inch thin, low power netbook since last year. Usually these netbooks feature Intel CULV or AMD Neo processors but this one features a dual core AMD Neo processor.
The MSI U250 will have a 1.3GHz AMD Athlon II Neo dual core K325 CPU, will run Windows 7, 4GB of RAM, a 320GB hard drive, and a video card with 512MB of dedicated video memory. We also know that it uses about 30.7 kWh of electricity per year and consumes about 10.6 watts when idle.
While the Energy Star page lists the U250 as a notebook/tablet, I wouldn’t spend too much time hoping that this model is a convertible tablet style notebook. Energy Star describes a number of existing MSI notebooks as notebook/tablet, even though those models are already on the streets and quite clearly ship without a touchscreen.
