MSI Wind Top AE2050-008US


For cash-strapped art dabblers or budding digital painters, the MSI Wind Top AE2050-008US may be your top pick for touch-screen PCs.

Touch screen. Large hard drive. Interesting touch browser. ArtRage Studio is bundled. USB 3.0. Super Charger port.

Only 1,600-by-900 resolution screen (not 1080p). Low-powered 3D graphics. Wired keyboard and mouse. Only 60-day subscription to Norton Internet Secutiry. HDMI is output only.

Review: MSI AE2050


MSI takes aim at the only segment of the desktop market showing any life -- all-in-one computers -- by offering a classy-looking machine at a...

Uses just 65 watts under normal conditions. Extraordinarily cheap. Lots of USB ports (six), and a card reader. “Wind Touch” interface option is fun to play with… once it eventually loads

Too slow for regular use. Using “SuperCharger” USB port disables data transfer functions and has to be manually turned off and on. Chintzy keyboard includes no Delete key (except as an alt function on the numeric keypad)

MSI Wind Top AE2050


Hot on the heels of the Wind Top AE2220 comes the MSI Wind Top AE2050, a budget all-in-one PC that's all about compromise. For this model, MSI shed a few hundred bucks off the asking price ($680 as of April 26, 2011), but also gone are the AE220's...

Above-average display quality ; USB 3.0 and HDMI connectivity

Center-heavy speaker setup ; Slow general performance

The MSI Wind Top AE2050 delivers compelling features, inexpensively. But several compromises keep it from surpassing its budget-priced peers.

Actually fast enough for high-quality gaming, Handsome design and display, HDMI input

Previous-generation Core i7 chip, Fussy screen controls

But price is a secondary consideration when faced with the first all-in-one we've seen that can break the 30 fps barrier with modern games. The MSI AG2712A won't blow away tower gaming rigs, but it blows away a longtime complaint about AIOs. Here's...

MSI Wind Top AE2410


Overall, the MSI Wind Top AE2410 is a solid option for a Windows 7-powered all-in-one media center computer. The 24-inch LCD touchscreen monitor is great, and there's enough performance to finish your work and keep you entertained. To get optimal...

A beautiful 24-inch multi-touch LCD screen is the standout feature

The AE2410 sacrifices processing power for value

This is an affordable media center with better-than-average specs.

MSI Wind Top AE2210 review


An all-in-one PC you won't be able to keep your hands off

Responsive touchscreen ; Solid Intel Core i3 2100 ; Impressive base specification ; Good selection of touch software ; Good sounding THX speakers

Minor screen light-leaks ; Light constant fan noise ; Slight screen finger "drag ; Weak 3D performance ; Speakers lack volume

We have a love-hate relationship with all-in-one PCs. They should be something we love. A slick single-unit design can be as glorious as the Apple iMac 21.5-inch model, but then many seem to be vastly expensive. That high price is something pioneered...

MSI Wind Top AE2712G review


This is the least expensive 27in all-in-one PC we've reviewed of late and offers a correspondingly lower specification with somewhat lacklustre performance. The nVidia graphics are particularly disappointing. However, you do get a Blu-ray player and a...

MSI Wind Top AE2281G review


MSI's compact 21.5in touchscreen all-in-one PC features the low-power Core i5-3450S Ivy Bridge processor, and costs a lot less than comparable all-in-one PCs.

The MSI Wind Top AE2281G is a low-cost system that is good value for money and performs, for the most part, just as well as many more expensive PCs. It can't match their premium build quality and styling though. Memory and hard drive space have been...

Reviewed: MSI AE2050 all-in-one PC


A pretty good option for a second PC in the home.

Finally - an all-in-one PC that, thanks to Fusion, actually ticks the right boxes.
