MSI Ships All-In-One PC This Month

For consumers who like everything crammed into one package, MSI has your tasty ticket with the new NetOn AP1900 AIO PC.

Originally showcased at CES '09, MSI's new all-in-one PC, the NetOn AP1900, will officially hit retail shelves later this month as reported by TechConnect Magazine (although a thorough search of MSI's press release archive has yet to reveal such a claim). According to the site, the NetOn focuses on office workers, the educational segment, businesses, and shops. Featuring an 18.5-inch WXGA LCD capable of up to 1366x768 pixels and a 16:9 aspect ratio, the NetOn not only frees up space with its compact all-in-one design, but provides the business and educational end-user the processing power they need.

Under the hood, the NetOn sports the 1.6 GHz Atom N270 CPU, Intel's 945GSE chipset, integrated graphics, 1 GB of SODIMM DDR2 RAM and a 160 GB hard drive. The package also features a Super Multi DVD drive, a fixed 1.3 megapixel webcam, a 4-in-1 card reader, two 3w speakers, and WiFi and Gigabit Ethernet connections. Completing the package is a 35mm thick secsi black shell equipped with a VESA wall mount bracket. The NetOn also comes bundled with a keyboard and mouse, and is Energy Star 5.0 compliant, with a noise level less than 24 dB.

"MSI NetOn AP1900 is the first All-In-One MSI desktop system," said the company. "It is equipped with Intel Atom processor, which helps to improve performance and to save energy. The MSI NetOn AP1900 has an excellent electronic circuit design, which consumes only 35 Watts at full speed operation. It can save up to 86% of power in a 24-hour period, compared to normal desktop computers that consume at least 250 Watt. MSI NetOn AP1900 is a registered system for EPEAT and is Energy Star 5.0 certified. Next to that, the system produces less than 26dB of noise due to the advanced technology, even during intensive computing applications."

The specs also state that the computer comes with Windows XP Home installed, and has four USB 2.0 ports built-in. Look for NetOn AP1900 all-in-one PC later this month.

    The atom CPU, intel graphics and 1 GB of RAM isnt "giving people the processing power they need". Its giving them the bare minimum. Upgrade that to an E5200, 2 GB of RAM, and a 9400 GT, and you give the average consumer a good computer, which is signigicantly better then the specs listed here, for not to much more money
