MSI's first AMD Neo-based netbook is available today, along with a new home video monitoring kit from Vue.

• The Vue Personal Video Network kit we reviewed a few months ago is shipping today. The package comes with a base station and two wireless cameras. Check out Jason's thoughts for a better rundown, but in essence he found it to be an easy-to-use surveillance system that produces acceptable video quality. Whether or not ease of use is worth the premium over just setting up a webcam is your call. The base system runs for $300, and additional cameras can be added for $99 each. [Press Release]

• MSI's Wind U210 notebook is now available. The latest addition to the Wind family falls in the same price range as most netbooks, but some subtle differences under the hood set it apart from the crowd. For one, MSI went with a 1.6GHz AMD Neo processor instead of the standard Intel Atom N270 we're all used to seeing by now. The U210 also bumps up the RAM from the 1GB that has become the netbook norm to a healthy 2GB. Unfortunately, ION graphics are a no-show. AMD's integrated graphics solution drives the 12" display. The Wind U210 is available today for $430. [Amazon]
