The new hybrid netbook from MSI called ‘U115’ adopting both SSD and HDD on a single machine. The technology allows the 8/16-Gbyte SSD working in conjunction with the 120/160-Gbyte rotating hard drive smoothly. The SSD is designed to store the system file, while the HDD is used to save data. The U115 can be switched to “ECO on Mode” to use SSD only to save the power.
MSI didn’t release a price or a ship date for the U115 netbook, which includes a 10-inch display and is designed around Intel’s 1.6-GHz Z530 Atom processor and its “Menlow” chipset platform. Other specs include the usual 1 Gbyte of RAM, 802.11b/g/n wireless, Bluetooth EDR, a few USB ports, either a 1.3-Mpixel or 2.0-Mpixel Webcam, and 4-in-1 card reader.
