MSI Ships 2 AMD Netbooks With Radeon HD3200

They're both a little on the large side for netbooks (12.1-inch displays), but they're neat little notebooks that boast AMD's Athlon Neo MV-40 and Athlon X2 L335 respectively. The U230-033 packs a 250GB HDD while the 040 bumps storage up to 350GB.

That's where the differences end, folks. They both feature ATI's Radeon HD3200 graphics, 2GB of RAM, a 6-cell battery, 802.11b/g/n WiFi, 3 x USB, VGA and HDMI out, a 4-in-1 card reader and a 1.3 megapixel webcam. Each weighs 3.3 pounds and runs Windows 7 Home Premium.

The U230-033 has a price tag of $429.99 and the U230-040 costs $479.99. Both are available today on Newegg.

    That's actually not a bad price tag. Convenient Vidcard if you have a few PSD projects that need touching up before class etc.

    Not bad. Although it just scratches the minimum system requirements for the latest PC gaming....

    Don't know if I would be comfortable gaming on a 12inch screen.
