MSI has launched an update to its netbook line with the Wind U100 PLUS.

The netbook comes with a new Intel Atom N280 microprocessor, which runs at 1.66GHz and a higher frequency 667MHz bus compared to 533MHz on the older N270. Asus is one of the only companies currently selling a netbook with an Atom N280 chip, the Asus 1000HE netbook.

The Wind U100 PLUS sports a 10in screen with 600x1024 resolution, runs Microsoft's Windows XP Home, has a 160GB hard disc drive, and works with several wireless technologies including Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n and Bluetooth.

It comes standard with a 3-cell battery but can be upgraded to a 6-cell. Pricing information for Wind U100 PLUS was not immediately available.
