MSI Wind U100 – Hackintosh Delight?

by on Feb.04, 2009, under Life, Technology

I finally succumbed to the NetBook craze yesterday and picked up an MSI Wind U100.

For a mere $600 Australian the specs on this thing are pretty remarkable:

  • Intel Atom N270 1.6GHz Processor (with keyboard overclocking to 2GHz)
  • 1GB RAM – included in the price I paid I had it upgraded to 2GB
  • 120GB Hard Drive
  • 10” 1024×600 LCD Panel
  • 802.11b/g/n WiFi and Bluetooth
  • 4-in-1 Card Reader, SD/MMC/MS/MS Pro
  • 3 USB2 Ports
  • 1.3MP Webcam and built in mic

I also got the 6-cell battery version for long life.

Before I give it to my school age children however – I’m thinking of doing a bit of research with it and I’ll try installing various operating systems onto it. I’ll probably give (Open)Solaris a whirl and I’m going to give a boot-132 retail OS X Leopard install a try.
