MSI Wind Top AE1941 All-in-One Computer

Micro-Star International isn't one for short announcements, which is why it dedicated quite a few words to the introduction of the Wind Top AE1941 all-in-one personal computer.

MSI isn't looking to win any performance prizes. Instead, it basically covered the necessities and focused on energy efficiency and space saving instead. It also made sure to include multimedia sharing functions, as well as a touch panel for that 18.5-inch LCD (liquid crystal display). The screen is just about what one would expect, though with perhaps a lower resolution than warranted. The LED backlighting is normal enough, but the native resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels might leave something to be desired when Full HD is basically normal now (1920 x 1080 pixels). Then again, MSI strove to make this a mid-range or lower-end computer, one for people who just want a good means of surfing the web and such.

Thus, the CPU is a relatively low-key Celeron 847, with 2 MB cache memory and two cores at 1.1 GHz each (no Hyper-Threading). Speaking of which, the CPU is backed by 4 GB of DDR3-1333 MHz RAM (a single SO-DIMM included, hence this top limit). A 2.5-inch SATA III HDD (hard disk drive) ads 320 GB of storage space to the equation, with a 3 in 1 card reader opening avenues for even more. Other specs include a pair of 3W speakers, a Super Multi DVD writer, Wi-Fi, audio connectors (in and out), four USB 2.0 ports (two at the back, two on the side), LAN and microphone.

All the hardware is managed by the Intel NM70 chipset and packed inside a frame small and light enough to mount on the wall if needed, using the MSI mounting kit (no VESA universal mount here, apparently).  Sadly, the press release did not have information on pricing and availability, though we assume sales should already be underway.
