MSI's All-in-1 Has 3D, Core i7, Full HD 120Hz LED

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 28 comments

MSI is sporting a number of new AIO PCs next month at CeBIT 2010.

MSI said Tuesday that it's showcasing a "dazzling array" of new and industry-first all-in-one PCs at CeBIT 2010 next month. However, what really stood out was MSI's Wind Top All-In-One 3D PC, touted as the world's first large screen, Full HD 3D all-in-one rig. Despite its all-in-oneness, the Wind Top sounds rather tasty, sporting a 24-inch 120 Hz LED screen cranking out 1080p.

"MSI's Wind Top All-in-One 3D PC integrates advanced 3D display technology with powerful CPU processing to deliver smooth, clear and vibrant 3D images with a high level of image detail and clarity," the company said. "Combining a large, 24-inch 120Hz LED display and full HD (1080p) resolution with 3D shutter glasses allows home users to experience the 3D movie theater experience in the comfort and convenience of their living rooms."

MSI also introduced two top-of-the-line AIO PCs: the 22-inch AE2280 and the 24-inch AE2420. Both models offer a multi-touch display, Intel Core (i3/i5/i7) processors, and Intel's Turbo Boost technology. For the business and eco-friendly consumer, MSI will also send its Wind Top AP 1920/AE1920 AIOs and its Wind Box Mini-PCs out onto the CeBIT catwalk. These models claim to provide 90-percent lower average hourly energy consumption than the traditional 300W desktop PC.

Also showcased at CeBIT next month will be several AIOs that incorporate high-quality speakers into five AIO models. "The MSI Wind Top AE2280, AE2260 and AE2220 are equipped with two 5-watt Hi-Fi speakers, while the 24-inch AE2400 and AE2420 feature 10-watt speakers for added bass response," the company said.

Hopefully we'll see more of these AIOs next month in Germany.

    I agree 3d gaming on this thing is probably limited but I'm betting it's aiming at casual users who want to be able to surf and watch 3d movies. I personally wouldn't mind it as a bedroom pc.

    I wonder what video card is inside... probably nothing to make full use of the 1080p w/ 3D enabled at highest quality graphics.

    I hope they makes a barebones of their All-in-One like their whitebooks. Would love the chance to save some money.

    It's probably an NVIDIA GPU as ATI doesn't have 3D w/shutter glasses yet (but they are working on it)

    I dont even enjoy watching 3D movies at the theater as much as conventional viewing. new digital 3D cameras seam forced with limited use. and virtual reality is cool but isolating. I just dont see a mass market that will drive the 3D format.

    I would think that for the time being 3D has limited use. From what I actually got to see so far 3D is not all that good. Still a long way to go.

    It's all about the 3d porn :D

    Doesn't say it has to come with a core I7. Think it's just a socket 1156 and if you'd like you can upgrade to that. And anyone who's throwing an I7 into an all in one not made by something like Alienware has too much money.

    Funny, I just had a discussion with my friend where he was saying iMac's are better than PC's because they are AIO ... So much for that :)

    It does, its just ATI isn't yelling the laments of a proprietary closed model for doing it. They are using the OpenCL versions.

    Hmm...
    Can I get someone to use two webcams at once (with one of these, webcam on each side), a special webcam chat program, and use 3D on this?
    =)

    i think the 3D environment will take a long time to go mainstream, but by that time 4D will be appearing ...which will add to the audio/visual smell and touch

    Last year I built an i5 750 based rig for a customer needing enough processing power to batch hundreds of 10Mpixel raw images in a reasonable manner without making his other tasks (picasa work and delphi programming) seem restricted. A guy like him could very well make use of an i7 combined with a 24" display for his work.

    the 4th dimentional isn't fixed - it can be any of a number of defined dimentions of which time is merely one. And considering time being a relative measure and not a fixed one (as opposed to the first three) it's highly impropable that it can be reliably integrated in software.
