When you think MSI Wind NetOn, think HP TouchSmart and Eee Top
2009 marks the year MSI plans to convert those world dominating ambitions into an actuality, by attempting to take a lead in the all-in-one PC market with its Wind NetOn models. Before the doors opened at CES this year, we already knew they were planning to impress with a range of netbooks and notebooks. What we didn’t know, was that it’d be unleashing an all-in-one touchscreen PC (think HP TouchSmart and Eee Top).
Press release spiel says the Wind NetOn is a “killer product”, coming in 16, 19 and 22-inch offerings – I say, it’s not quite “killer” (as we’ve seen models like this before), but it is a super thin and aesthetically pleasing, wall-hanging PC, with the ability to command at your fingertips.
By adding a few extra inches onto your screen, you’ll get a few more specs for your inches (or money). The 19-inch AE190, as well as boasting a16:9 screen and a large HD, digital multimedia interface, packs Intel’s new dual-core Atom processor, therefore consuming less energy, and making it the first all-in-one PC to include this technology. The 20-inch AE2003 is a little more entertainment orientated, with full HD, a 16:9 1920 x 1080 screen resolution, Blu-ray drive, WiFi and an Intel Core 2 Duo CPU that’ll be able to handle the likes of Vista.
There’s no word on pricing at the moment, so expect an update soon.
