It looks like a lot of products unveiled at CES 2010 are finally getting some release and shipping dates. Now the MSi Wind U160 netbook is also now shipping in the US.

Selling for as low as $379.99 (before taxes and shipping), the MSi Wind U160 netbook is a worthy contender for those shopping around for a netbook right now - especially considering it promises up to 14-15 hours of battery life.

You might have to search around though, as Newegg and some other sites are already shipping, but Amazon is still only on pre-order mode.

Just to keep in mind, some of the specs on the MSi Wind U160 include:

  • 10.1-inch glossy display (1024 x 600 resolution)
  • Windows 7 Starter
  • Intel Atom N450 processor
  • GMA 3150 graphics
  • 1GB of RAM
  • 250GB HDD
  • 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi
  • 10/100 LAN
  • Bluetooth
  • 1.3-megapixel webcam
  • 6-cell battery

It's available in black and gold, although based on the photo, that's a very dusty dark gold. (I don't like it when colors in PR photos can be misleading, especially when shopping online.)
