Computer maker MSI is getting ready to give Asus a run for the money in the cheap all-in-one PC space. The MSI Wind Wind Top AE1900 PC looks a lot like an Asus Eee Top (or an iMac, for the matter), but it has a larger 18.5 inch display and an optional dual core Intel Atom 330 CPU. 

MSI unveiled the AE1900 a while back, but now the company says it’s coming to the United States with a starting price of $529. That’s about $20 below the starting price for an Eee Top with a 16.5 inch display, although you can find Eee Tops going for as little as $533 on Amazon right now.

Here’s a rundown of what you get with the Wind Top AE1900:

  • Display: 18.5 inch, 1366 x 768 pixel touchs creen
  • CPU: Intel Atom 230 or 330
  • Graphics: Integrated Intel GMA 950 
  • Storage: 160GB / 250GB hard drive
  • Optical disc drive: Slot-loading Super Multi DVD burner
  • I/O: 4 USB ports, 4-in-1 card reader, mic, headphone
  • Connectivity: Ethernet, 802.11b/g/n WiFi
  • Webcam: 1.3MP
  • Power Consumption: Less than 50 watts

  1. That one is a little under powered for a media center – –
    but it might have other uses in a household.

    And then there is the question of operating system – –
    I don’t know the MS product line well, but I think only the
    more expensive additions allow remote desktop login.

    With Linux – remote login to the GUI is just normally turned off.

    Turn the remote GUI access on, then use and/or control the large
    screen device from the comfort of your NetBook on the couch. 😉

    Thinking that way, these are “NetBook accessories”.

  2. @ Brad –
    I have been wondering about this inclusion of the “one piece” machines here – – –
    But after a lot of thought – it does make a sort of sense for a “NetBook” blog/forum – –

    If you have a NetBook – the one thing you might want at home is a “large screen” device –
    Since these (both the “one piece” and the “NetBooks”) come with wireless –
    They could easily be set to run as their own little wireless cell –
    Turning the combination into a local cell of devices for a purpose –
    The NetBook on the end table – the large display thingy “over there” –
    All networked into one “household services” setup (along with the blender and micro-wave).

    1. Yup. The one issue I’m finding with the Eee Top is that it’s just not quite
      as powerful as I would like a desktop to be. It’s *close*. But it’s not
      quite there. So if you’re looking for a multimedia machine or a PC that
      needs a bit more oomph for other reasons, these Intel Atom powered
      all-in-ones aren’t going to be enough. I should have my complete review out
      in the next day or two with more details.
      But there are overarching reason I’m covering these machines: First, they
      follow the same design choices as netbooks – cheaper, less powerful devices
      that offer “good enough” performance. Second, because I’m interested in them
      and this is my blog. 🙂
