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 Wind Top AE2010


The touch-sensitive MSI Wind Top AE2010 is faster than your average nettop, but falls short of its potential.

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.

Review: MSI Wind Top AE2010


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 AE2010-02SUS Review and Ratings


MSI's 20-inch AMD-powered all-in-one PC is noticeably snappier than an Atom-powered nettop and a good deal at $649. It can act as a primary PC, though it can't handle Hulu video.

Dual-core CPU, 4GB RAM make it much more capable than a nettop ; Large touch screen for media navigation ; Graphics enable light 3D gaming and HD video playback still stutters, despite more powerful CPU ; 32-bit OS can’t access all RAM ; Touch interface still unpolished

MSI Wind Top AE2010 review


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 the MSI Wind Top AE2010 is among the best-performing budget all-in-one PCs (20-inches or smaller) we've...

MSI's Wind Top AE2010 does a great job of filling the gap between budget all-in-one systems and flashier big-screen all-in-one PCs (over 20 inches) that we've tested. Minus the slightly questionable picture quality, it's hard to find many faults with...

For my Father


5 Eggs. The price fits the product. The product feels like you should of paid more for it.

Great Bang for the buck ; Ez installation ; Tons of multimedia features ; I purchased when it dropped under $400 ; I couldnt build or find a AIO or full desktop that had 20" screen/4gbmemory/dualcore/4-1 readers for the same price w/o going to auction...

Using for home entertainment


We use this computer in our home entertainment system. It's hooked to a 42" 1080p LCD TV. Finding a touch screen computer with a video out was much more difficult than I thought it should be. Overall I'm satisfied with this computer. It's works great...

This model has all of the I/O ports we needed ; Included wall mount adapter kit ; MSI Wind Touch control program not perfect, but functional ; Touch screen responsive ; Monitor on/off switch

32bit OS ; ATI HD 3200 Graphics somewhat lackluster. I'm well aware of the limitations of an integrated graphics card. We needed this card to stream from Hulu, NetFlix, etc and it struggles. I'm not noticing much difference compared to the Intel X3000...

Product Specifications

Wind Top AE2010 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 AE2010 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. The embedded high-pixel webcam, high quality microphone and 2 sets of surround sound speakers are all ready for the most popular instant messaging and quality video call. The 16:9 aspect ratio can add 14% more viewing area compared to the regular 16:10 dispay. It can also avoid the black blocks on the top and bottom of the screen.
