"While it's outward appearance remains mostly the same, the netbook's internals have been upgraded across the board, including a new Atom N455 processor, some DDR3 memory, MSI's own "Turbo Drive Engine" and, last but not least, a 15-hour battery (aided in part by MSI's ECO power management system)."
Looks mostly like the U160 model I posted on yesterday, but this model has been specially tweaked to maximize battery life. So much so that it is getting double the battery life at 15 hours. We'll have to wait for a full review to see if we are going to be paying a big premium or taking a major performance hit in exchange for the longevity.
