People often want to know which is the best netbook available. Unfortunately that is not an easy question to answer, for one very good reason - they are changing all the time. What is the best netbook now will probably not be the best netbook in 3 months' time. Computers in general and netbooks in particular are constantly evolving and they quickly become out of date.
Both have 2GB of DDR2, a 6 cell battery, and Windows 7 Home Premium as standard. The fact that they have Windows 7 Home Premium installed is a very good factor, as the Windows 7 Starter is really not good enough. They also have as standard an ATI Radeon HD 3200 graphics card and a 1.3 megapixel webcam, HDMI port, and 3 USB 2.0 ports.
The U230-033 features an Athlon Neo MV-40 with a 250GB SATA drive, the U230-040 has an Athlon X2 L335 and a 320GB SATA drive. They both have a 12.1? LCD (at 1366×768) which is on the large side for a netbook, and the new EDS Keyboard with larger keys.
Both systems are now on sale with the U230-033 selling for $429.99, and the faster U230-040 selling for $479.99. MSI U230-040US 12.1-Inch Netbook - 4 Hour Battery Life
