Review MSI Wind Top AE2220 All in One Touch PC


Touch me.The AE2220 is a display-PC for under 800 Euro. Behind th

High contrast of the TFT screen; Good sound; Many ports for connectivity; Remote control; DVD-drive; Space saving design

Fingerprints on the TFT screen; Minimal performance in games; No TV-tuner; Poorly executed keyboard

Controlling Windows 7 with one's fingers functions very well after a few personal adjustments.

MSI Wind Top AE2220


We've taken manufacturers to task for offering limited upgrades between their cycles of all-in-one desktops, and MSI almost escapes a talking-to with its Wind Top AE2220. This 21.6-inch successor to the MSI Wind Top AE2010 comes in at a total price of...

Blu-ray drive complements 1080p display ; Above-average (and advanced) external connections

Poor display quality with rare, discernable flaws

MSI's well-connected Wind Top AE2220 offers a TV tuner and Blu-Ray playback, in addition to advanced connections we don't often see in the All-in-One category.

MSI Wind Top AE2220 unboxing and impressions


In the land of netbooks and nettops, the tried-and-true all-in-one PC still has a place in this world yet. MSI is living proof of that, with its 21.5-inch Wind Top AE2220 bringing Windows 7, multitouch and an eye-pleasing design to the collective...

Great touchscreen response ; Integrated Blu-ray player ; Lovely all-around performance

Not cut out for gaming ; Lame bundled keyboard / mouse ; Still not much use for a touchpanel

MSI Wind Top AE2220


On paper, the MSI Wind Top AE2220 ($950 list) is a challenger for the title of "best all-in-one desktop PC." It's an affordable, Blu-ray-equipped, touchscreen desktop with plenty of HD media features. However, its lousy keyboard and a clunky touch...

Touch screen. True 1080p HD. MCE remote. Wireless keyboard and mouse. Blu-ray reader. TV tuner. HDMI and VGA input

Keyboard feels cheap. Proprietary touch interface is a little clunky. No channel and volume controls on the chassis. Some bloatware. Only 60-day subscription to Internet Security. No FireWire. Finicky IR sensor. No Back button on mouse

On paper, the MSI Wind Top AE2220 is definitely a challenger for the "best all-in0one desktop PC." It's a sub-$1,000 touchscreen-equipped desktop with plenty of HD media features. However, a few shortcomings keep it from scoring higher.
