Even with Asustek firmly holding onto the number one spot for netbook sales, MSI is doing quite well with the Wind. According to most recent estimates, the company is on track to reach upwards of 700,000 units shipped this year. While that still puts them behind Asustek by a considerable margin, with the Eee selling 700,000 in September alone, it still puts them ahead of their own estimates by quite a bit.

MSI's sales are expected to increase as the year ends, and given how much more time the Eee has had on the market, 2009 could prove to be a year when the Wind stands right beside the Eee. There's no mention if MSI's recent introduction of the Wind 3.5G has affected these sales.
