MSI Wind Top AE1900

 

Separating the AE1900 from its all-in-one PC peers are its 18.5-inch, single-touch display and its affordable $529 (as of 7/2/09) price. Its screen is larger than the 15.6-inch Asus Eee Top ET1602, which is only $30 cheaper, and it has an integrated...

Big touchscreen for the price ; Matches closest rivals in performance

Lower resolution makes images less crisp ; No upgrades

The AE1900 all-in-one desktop provides netbook-like performance, but sweetens the deal with a large touchscreen.

MSI's Cheap Desktop Suffers From Performance Anxie...

 

After a few grim years ceded to the iMac, PC-based all-in-one desktops are making an LL Cool J-esque comeback. Their next move: Make the switch from semi-luxe

Amazingly affordable and loaded to the gills. Touchscreen makes this a perfect kiddie computer. Slim profile lets it fit just about anywhere. Cuter than a box of puppies

Performance problems dog the user at every turn. Flashing blue hard-drive activity light is front and center, terribly distracting and impossible to cover up. Bundled keyboard and mouse are beyond cheap. Webcam aim can't be adjusted

MSI Wind Top AE1900 Review

 

Intel never intended for the ultra-low-voltage Atom processor to power anything but ultraportable PCs, but its widespread popularity in netbooks has now earned the chip yet another new home in desktop computers as well. Manufacturers like Asus,...

Inexpensive; energy efficient; no trialware; face login works well

Monitor stand glitch; low screen resolution; cheap peripherals; not powerful enough for HD; no video output; weak touch-based software

For the bargain basement price, MSI's AE1900 Wind Top makes a fine living room machine, spare computer, or e-mail station.

MSI offers a wide range of ‘All-in-One' PCs and the Wind Top AE1900 stands as the entry level machine from its ‘Entertainment Series'

Sleek—though derivative—design, Uses less power than non-Atom-based all-in-one desktops, Quiet

Woefully underpowered compared with all-in-ones that cost little more, Weak speakers, Tray-loading DVD drive, Touch-centric software is oddly organized, Vista Basic OS lacks Media Center

Won't take up much space, built-in DVD burner, reasonable performance for basic tasks

Touch screen doesn't support gestures, touch screen not easy to use for scrolling and dragging actions, MSI Wind Touch interface can't be customised, no front-facing ports

We're all familiar with what a netbooks and a nettops are: they're low cost, lower powered CPU-based computers that are really just for surfing the web and light computing tasks. Expanding on these products are all-in-one computers, which take the same...

MSI Wind Top AE1900 review

 

The MSI Wind Top AE1900's screen is larger than the 15.6in Asus Eee Top 1602, which is only marginally cheaper, and it has an integrated DVD±RW drive.

A nice, big display, a touchscreen, 802.11n wireless capabilities, available in black or white...the MSI Wind Top AE1900 seems to have the basics covered. But a lack of upgradability, along with picture quality that's average at best, pulls this system...

Product Specifications

Wind Top AE1900 also considers user's needs by four sorting categories: work, fun, tool, and web. You can browse all of the options through your finger tips across the screen and start programs by touching the graphic icons. The next-generation PC control won't get any easier than this. Unlike the awkward techie design, Wind Top AE1900 was created in a trendy eye-catching design which lets a desktop PC can also be part of your home decoration and life style. It also saves space and adds more fine taste to your personal environment. There is no need to worry about the fan noises like traditional PC! AE1900 uses the latest cooling technology to control the noise level no more than 26 decibels, which is as quiet as a library, for creating the most comfortable working and e-learning environment.
