MSI WindTop AE2010
MSI today added a larger, faster version of its WindTop all-in-one desktop to its American lineup. In addition to a larger 20-inch touchscreen with a higher 1600x900 resolution, the easel-like PC is also the first for the US to use a processor faster than an Atom and uses a low-power, 1.5GHz AMD Athlon X2 that gives it enough power to run Windows Vista and eventually Windows 7. Switching to the new platform also gives MSI a much faster Radeon HD 3200 integrated graphics chipset for better 3D and HD processing.
A VESA wall mount is new and gives kitchen or living room adaptions a near-zero footprint.
Just one configuration is shipping and carries 4GB of RAM, a 320GB hard drive and a DVD burner at its heart along with 802.11n Wi-Fi and a 1.3-megapixel webcam. Shipping times are unavailable, but the system will cost $650 when it's ready.
