  • Summary: Verdict As an entertainment machine this Wind Top is a mixed bag. That said, if you aren't after HD playback and gaming, this machine makes an excellent web and e-mail PC and, since it also packs a memory card reader, you can use it to show off photos as well.
  • Pros: Great design, big-screen size, 802.11n WiFi, well-priced, memory card reader.
  • Cons: Lacks real video firepower, headphones and microphone ports on the back.

Expert Review

18 May 2009
  • Excerpt: The $599 MSI Wind Top AE1900-05SUS is an inexpensive touch-screen-enabled all-in-one desktop, but it’s now outclassed by other all-in-one offerings that cost as little as $100 more.
  • Pros: Sleek—though derivative—design, Uses less power than non-Atom-based all-in-one desktops, Quiet
  • Cons: Woefully underpowered compared with all-in-ones that cost little more, Weak speakers, Tray-loading DVD drive, Touch-centric software is oddly organized, Vista Basic OS lacks Media Center

MSI Wind Top AE1900 Review

11 May 2009
  • Conclusion: For the bargain basement price, MSI’s AE1900 Wind Top makes a fine living room machine, spare computer, or e-mail station. Though it costs about $130 more than your average netbook, the Wind Top offers a bigger screen with touch capabilities, an optical drive, and full-sized peripherals, making it a better choice for use as a sole computer.
  • Pros: Inexpensive; energy efficient; no trialware; face login works well
  • Cons: Monitor stand glitch; low screen resolution; cheap peripherals; not powerful enough for HD; no video output; weak touch-based software

MSI Wind Top AE1900

7 October 2009
  • Excerpt: Vive la crise ! L’irruption des netbooks dans le monde de l’informatique a fait fondre les prix des portables. Après le succès sur ce marché, MSI entend bien récidiver avec les desktops. Pour ce faire, le constructeur reprend les bonnes vieilles recettes des Wind dans cet AE1900 : l’incontournable processeur Intel Atom (ici N230), 1 Go de mémoire vive, une webcam 1,3 mégapixel, un disque dur de 160 Go, le tout tournant sous Windows XP SP3.
  • Pros: Interface tactile sympathique, design soigné, compacité, grand écran 16/9, fourni avec clavier et souris, faible consommation électrique.
  • Cons: Puissance limitée, impossibilité de lire des vidéos HD.
