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.

Review: MSI Wind Top AE1900

 

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...

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

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

MSI Wind Top AE1900-05SUS Review and Ratings

 

The $599 MSI Wind Top AE1900-05SUS is an inexpensive touch-screen-enabled all-in-one desktop, but it's now outclassed by other all-in-one offerings that cost as little as $100 more.

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

Product Specifications

Wind Top AE1900 offers the touch screen function along with an easy and friendly user interface, MSI Wind Touch; you can simply touch the screen to access all PC functions. 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.
