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


The MSI Wind Top AE2220 is a well-equipped touch screen and all in one desktop.

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.

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

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 Hi-Fi


An all-in-one PC with Hi-Fi quality sound? Sounds too good to be true.

A reasonably attractive all-in-one PC, MSI's Wind Top AE2220 Hi-Fi might not live up to its billing as a Hi-Fi replacement, but nonetheless offers excellent value and – gaming aside – does most things you might want.

MSI Wind Top AE2220 review


This 21.6-inch successor to the MSI Wind Top AE2010 comes in at a price of around £700 - more than the original, but it could be money well-spent: the MSI Wind Top AE2220 is faster, larger, and more feature-packed in nearly every recordable category.

This MSI Wind Top AE2220 represents a significant upgrade over its predecessor but it’s hobbled by shoddy screen quality. If you're still won over by the MSI Wind Top AE2220's impressive specifications, you owe it to yourself to actually look at a...

MSI Wind Top AE2220 All-in-One Desktop PC


Just a PC? Nah. The Wind Top AE2220 has a nice touch-enabled screen, comes with a rich feature set, and can also dual up as a TV.

Nice looks, sleek profile ; 22-inch full-HD screen ; Supports multitouch input ; Very good feature set ; Decent performance ; TV Tuner + Remote = TV

Only 2GB RAM

The MSI Wind Top AE2220 is not just a PC. It has a very good multitouch-enabled screen, offers a rich set of features, and can also dual up as a television in your living room. One of the best family desktop PCs to have.
