MSI Wind Top AE2010 All-in-One PC


MSI's Wind Top AE2010 ($650, as of December 8, 2009) is one of our favorite new budget all-in-one PCs. It has a 20-inch single-touch display, Windows 7, and 4GB of memory; it ditches the Atom CPU for a 1.5GHz Athlon X2 Dual-Core 3250e processor; and it...

Single-touch touchscreen ; Strong general performance for its price

Reflective glossy screen coating ; 4GB RAM without 64-bit OS

MSI's Wind Top AE2010 does a great job of filling the gap between budget-minded all-in-one PCs, and flashier big screen models.

MSI's All-in-One PC Is One for All


MSI's latest single-serving PC makes some strides in the power department, but not in its price.

Internal upgrades finally give this all-in-one enough oomph to merit serious consideration, especially at this price. Great quality screen. Packs in four USB ports and one eSATA port

Screen is slightly dimmer than prior model. Cheap keyboard and mouse bundle. Leather trim on frame looks downright silly

MSI Wind Top AE2010


The MSI Wind Top AE2010 ($650 list) is a touch-sensitive, all-in-one desktop PC that has potential, but falls short in its current incarnation. It comes with a dual core AMD Athlon X2 processor, a decent amount of memory, and reasonably spacious hard...

All-in-one touchscreen PC. VESA mount and wall mount adapters included. VGA in and out. eSATA port

Touch sensitivity is finicky. Only 60-day subscription to Norton Internet Security. Pricey for a nettop. Lots of bloatware

The touch-sensitive MSI Wind Top AE2010 is faster than your average nettop. It's a decent system; however Windows Vista and an overbearing load of bloatware and extra programs bring the system's overall scores down.

MSI Wind Top AE2010 AIO Desktop System


Desktop computers are making a resurgence, and have exploited the compact nature of newer technology to provide the best of both worlds. Netbooks are the popular item for travelers, but they don't get the job done for full time workers and students....

Lacks DVI and HDMI Video Output ; Does Not Offer Internal Component Access ; 5400 RPM Hard Drive Slows Reaction Time
