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
