Wind Top All-in-Ones from MSI do Just About Everything

MSI’s new all-in-one computers can do 1080p, 120Hz and 3D, but something’s missing.

All-in-one solutions have gained ground in the entertainment market, but MSI is hoping to cement their place with a new series of computers that will be hitting shelves later this year.

Known as the Wind Top – though the press release doesn’t say it, I think we can assume that’s wind the noun and not wind the verb – these all-in-one PCs can handle just about everything. The AE2420 is at the top of that line with a 24” multi-touch screen and an Intel i7 processor.

For the first time, speakers have been added to Acer’s all-in-ones. They’re not much to write home about; the most powerful speakers only use 10 watts. Still, MSI says that their PCs are capable of producing excellent sound across low, medium and high frequencies.

The high-end AIOs from MSI will all be able to handle 3D with no problem. They’ve got a 120Hz refresh rate and a 1080p resolution. The one thing none of the new models seem to have is a Blu-ray player, which would make the 3D functionality a lot more useful.

When they launch, you’ll be able to configure the Wind Top AIOs to your heart’s content, even as far as changing the color of the PC.
