MSI Wind Top announced

PC maker MSI on Monday has officially announced specs, pricing and availability for its eco-friendly Wind Top AE1900 all-in-one PC for North America. The PC features a built-in 18.5-inch touchscreen with 1366x768 resolution, while processing power comes from a 1.6GHz Atom 230 CPU and 1GB of RAM. Graphics processing comes courtesy of an integrated GMA 950 chipset. The standard 2.5-inch, 160GB or optional 250GB hard drive is preloaded with Windows XP Home operating system. MSI claims the AE1900 consumes 80 percent less energy than a traditional desktop PC, and no more than 50W of power at full operation.

Thanks to an included SoftStylus program, users can enter data by "hand-writing" on the screen of using the virtual keyboard. The PC also bundles a dual-layer DVD writer, integrated Wi-Fi, a 4-in-1 multicard reader and 1.3-megapixel camera into its small form factor. A gigabit Ethernet port and four USB ports are also included. Noise emissions at idle are said to be just 26dB.

Pricing for the MSI Wind Top AE1900, which ships with a matching mouse and keyboard, begins at $529. The basic layout of the PC can be pre-ordered now at Amazon. A more expensive version, with a 1.6GHz Intel Atom 330 CPU and 2GB of RAM, will be released later, though pricing information is not yet known.
