If you purchase one do a system reset and then update the drivers from the MSI website as this sorts any known issues...

It has 1GB of RAM installed on the motherboard so you can add another 1GB should you need to rather than having to replace a 1GB with a 2GB module which is more expensive.

I HAVE FOUND BATTERY LIFE TO BE AROUND 2 HOURS WHICH SUITS ME FINE BUT IT WONT SUIT EVERYONE.

Also has bluetooth which is great for tethering or using a bluetooth mouse.

shame about the battery life, probably a 3 cell.....now if this was a 6 cell with a 6 hours life then nice and hot...nice to see both 1.3mp cam and bluetooth...

I've bought the U130 last time it was on offer. I was lucky, mine was as new (other ppl have reported scratched goods). I've reformatted the hard drive and installed W7 Ultimate. It now runs much faster. Battery life is about 2.5 hrs but you can buy an extra 6-cell battery for £30 at flebay, giving you a total of 8.5 hrs life.
I haven't upgraded the ram yet. Not sure if this would significantly improve speed. Test I read report speed increase of just 14% with an extra 1gb ram.

Extra RAM also allows you to run more applications at once more smoothly and costs around a tenner. To install it you will have to take the bottom off the netbook, there are videos on you-tube showing how to do this.

Iv'e seen these listed for £154.. So I would wait if your not in a hurry getting one...

Got the U100 Plus last month when shown on here, more than pleased with it ... running XP

I thought that the fan set up on these was fantastic. The fan vent is on the left hand side of the netbook rather than the bottom, therefore it doesn't get blocked when sitting on you knee. I can't hear the fan on mine unless the room is totally silent.
