Aside from its 1.66GHz Intel Atom N280 processor, the U123 also has an Intel 945GSE chipset inside and 1GB of DDR 2 memory. Storage capacity options include an 80GB, 120GB or 160GB 2.5in hard drive.

Equipped with a 10in, 1024 x 600 display, the U123 also features a four-in-one memory card reader and three USB ports. You can get onto the internet over its 802.11n compatible connection.

Bluetooth connectivity is optional, but you can upgrade the included 1.3Mp webcam to a 2Mp webcam – should you so wish.

Although fitted with a three-cell battery, MSI hasn’t said how long the power pack will hold out for. The U123 measures 260 x 180 x 20mm, weighs 1000g and runs on Windows XP Home.
