The Wind Top AE1900's elegant white color and glassy frame make it a great choice for both office and living room (see larger image).
The AE1900-01SUS Wind Top PC is outfitted with a 160 GB hard drive, 1 GB of RAM (non-expandable), a DVD burner (with dual-layer support), 1.3-megapixel webcam with integrated microphone, 4-in-1 memory card reader, stereo speakers with SRS Premium Sound, and Microsoft Windows XP Home. It connects to your network either via ultra-fast Gigabit Ethernet or via Draft-N Wi-Fi (802.11b/g/n). The Wind Top AE1900 also comes with a color-matched mouse and multimedia keyboard. It also comes with two MSI-exclusive games: MSI Chicken Shake and MSI Star Mission--both of which can be controlled by the motion of your face through the webcam.
Widescreen, High Definition Touchscreen
The MSI Wind Top AE1900's 18.5-inch screen (1366 x 768) has a 16:9 display ratio that adds 14 percent more viewing space compared to regular 16:10 screens and shows no black bars on the top and bottom of the screen--perfect for displaying HD images and high quality movies. With a 5-millisecond response time, the display is realistic and quick with no delays, so characters remain vivid. It also offers a 160-degree viewing angle, high 1000:1 contrast ratio and 250 cd/m2 (candela per square meter) brightness rating, which can display detailed and colorful images even with darker or more complicated pictures.
The touchscreen makes it easy to access all of your applications, which are sorted into four categories: Work, Fun, Tool, and Web.
The MSI Easy Viewer (above left) allows you to browse, enlarge, minimize and rotate, while the SoftStylus application (above right) enables onscreen handwriting.
The Wind Top AE1900 also comes with two touch-optimized applications: MSI Easy Viewer and SoftStylus. The MSI Easy Viewer photo viewing software allows you to quickly browse, enlarge, minimize and rotate all of your pictures, while the SoftStylus offers easy touchscreen input via natural handwriting or a touch-enabled softkeyboard (and it supports 18 languages).
The screen is paired with two sets of 3-watt stereo speakers and the SRS Premium Sound suite of audio technologies, which provides immersive surround sound from just two speakers (or a pair of headphones), deep, rich bass, and an intuitive user interface with a variety of presets.
The Intel Atom 230 processor uses a brand new 45nm (nanometer) design structure that provides a 1.6 GHz CPU speed with a 533 MHz front-side bus (FSB) and 512 KB L2 cache--which uses just 4 watts of power. (An L2, or secondary, cache temporarily stores data; and a larger L2 cache can help speed up your system's performance. The FSB carries data between the CPU and RAM, and a faster front-side bus will deliver better overall performance.) It supports Intel's EM64T 64-bit computing architecture, which can allow the use of extended virtual and physical memory with compatible 64-bit software, as well as Intel's Hyper-Threading technology for speedier multitasking.
