There are several things that could be improved with this system. First, the keyboard and mouse are passable but not great (keyboard keys are noisy). They also take up 2 of the 4 USB slots. I-Rocks makes a nice looking RF wireless keyboard/mouse combo that would go nicely with this system. Second, I opted for the faster processor/larger RAM version of the AE1900 which comes loaded with Vista. I am not a fan of Vista. Third, the MSI Wind Touch interface is nice, but I have not yet been able to figure out how to add additional programs/applications, which you are supposed to be able to do (I have not tried MSI support yet). Without this capability, the interface is not really useful. Fourth, the system does boot up slower than I am used to, although I am spoiled by my ASUS 1000H. Based on reviews that I've read, this could be partly due to Vista and partly due to the MSI Wind Touch interface. Fifth, many of the programs listed in this interface are trial versions requiring users to purchase licenses within the first month or two of use. There does not, however, appear to be bloatware. Finally, the DVD-RW drive works well, but does appear to be a little flimsy when opened.
There are several things about this system that are extremely nice. First, other than a little disk drive noise during boot-up, the system is extremely quiet. Second, other than the DVD-RW drive, the system is solidly built.Read more ›
It has a very large screen and the price is attractive for a second or third computer. It would be great in a kitchen if you have a wirless network. The only negitive comments are that the owners manual is pretty weak. My touch screen was not working well and it took me awhile to fine the calibration routine. Once it was calibrated it worked very well. The on screen keyboard is nice, but not very big (mabe it can be re-sized but I have not found out how), so I have trouble using it and prefer the standard keyboard, but I assume this is true of most on-screen keyboards.
I highly recommend this computer if you really want a touchscreen. I will probably buy a second one for the kitchen to store recipies on. I also have a wine cellar and have loaded my cellar inventory on it so that I can update the list each time I add or remove a bottle from the cellar.

The AE1900 comes in two flavors. The first option ships with Windows XP and features a single-core Intel Atom 230 1.6 GHz processor, 1 GB of onboard SDRAM, and a 160 GB hard drive. The second option gets an upgrade to an Atom 330 1.6 GHz dual core processor, 2 GB of RAM, and a 250 GB hard drive running Windows Vista Home Basic.
The most prominent feature of the AE 1900 is the 18.5-inch 16:9 touch screen display. The touch screen itself is incredibly responsive and, while it lacks multi touch capability, it is still very pleasant to use.
The device doesn't feature much in the way of touch-enabled software outside of an app launcher, but third-party add-ons such as BumpTop can give users a fresh tactile experience. The device does include some alternative input software applications--an on-screen keyboard and handwriting recognition app--but they aren't practical for extended keyboarding. I didn't notice any tablet PC features in the XP operating system our review unit shipped with and, as a veteran of tablet PCs (I'm writing this review on a Lenovo Thinkpad x60 Tablet), I greatly miss those features in the Wind Top system. Our source tells us they'll be developing a Windows 7 model in the future and I'm sure that product will blow me away.
That being said, the Wind Top is absolutely beautiful. It comes in two colors--black and white--and features a clear bezel around its edge. This is a machine I'd be proud to display in high-traffic areas of my home.
Included with both Wind Top models is a DVD Super Multi Rewriter, integrated 1.Read more ›
When you try and open the calbration tool, or the program in the start menu, it appears they don't open. What they do is open a icon in the bottom system tray. From there you can perform the calibration, which is really very simple. After that your touch screen will be very accurate.
I really like this machine, I bought it to replace my 84 year old mothers laptop and she loves it.
Hope this saves a couple hours of pulling out your hair!
