One thing all-in-one PCs have over most desktops is that they simply look better. We've seen a lot of ugly tower systems, but relatively few AIOs that we'd qualify as eyesores. From what we can tell by viewing MSI's press photos, the company's new Wind Top AE2070 AIO doesn't buck the trend and is another classy edition to a growing number of AIO PCs. Touching it is optional.
What we mean by that is that you can configure one without a multi-touch panel, but what's the fun in that? In our opinion, AIOs are great for out-of-office environments, like a kitchen counter or living room corner, where you can mash (not smash) the screen to look up recipes, Jeopardy questions, etc. The AE2070 would fit into either space with its 20-inch LCD screen, and if you opt for the multi-touch panel, you can make use of MSI's Wind Touch 4 user interface.
Other specs include:
Intel Core i3 2100 / Dual Core G620
2GB DDR3-1333 (up to 8GB)
Intel HD 2000 graphics (GeForce GT 540M optional)
500GB SATA II HDD
HDMI, 2x USB 3.0, 4x USB 2.0, mic in, earphone out
6-in-1 media card reader
2x 3W speakers
Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
Also of note is that one of the USB 3.0 ports is of the "Super Charger" variety, meaning that it can charge USB devices even when the system is turned off. Pretty slick.
