MSI Reveals the Wind Top AE2212G All-in-One PC

The AE2212 and the AE2212G both feature a 1920 x 1080 LED backlit anti-glare panel, over which an optional touch screen film can be placed. The optional touchscreen would be 10-point multitouch.

MSI's new AE2212G/AE2212 comes standard with Windows 8, which in combination with the touchscreen, could provide a good computing experience. While most displays have corners that are inaccessible for fingers, MSI's new 22" All-in-One PC is frameless. Thus users can slide their fingers right over the corners, making the system a lot more accessible.

Both the AE2212G and AE2212 ship with Intel Ivy Bridge CPUs, have a couple of USB 3.0 ports, and come with a mouse and keyboard. They also come with a built-in 1 TB 3.5" drive and 802.11b/g/n wireless. They weigh just over 10 KG (about 22.74 lbs) and both support the 75 x 75 mm VESA standard as an option. Lastly, the unit also has an HDMI in port, allowing users to utilize the computer as just a display as well.

The AE2212 will use the CPU's integrated graphics, while the AE2212G will carry an Nvidia GT630M 2 GB graphics card.

Availability will start in Europe by the end of March, with no word on U.S. availability at the time of writing.

Very low end and designed and targeted more for casual computing or small office type work. This isn't a workstation or gaming computer.

    I'm thinking flush mounted frame/bezel. Frame-less indicates no frame at all.

    What annoys me is why they bother with the dedicated weak graphics, either use "sufficent" Intel graphics and make it an office/multimedia system, or put a DECENT gpu into it to make it a gaming all in one.

    I know why its a basic GPU however - its all down to PSU limitations, its expensive to make a high output "brick" psu.

    When are these companies going to figure out we do not want touch on our home PC, keep it on tablets.

    hydac7Each time i see that windows 8 screen i feel sick , I had all-in-ones, 2 of them , they were way too underpowered and suffered from over heating , now I'm back to normal computers ,much more powerYeah, my grandfather has one of these AIOs, and it might as well be a hair dryer. It's a mystery how such underpowered hardware can produce so much heat.

    Marketing........ Nvidia has still charm to fanboys in europe and on some other parts of the world. As long as the name was there they can price it the way they want.

    /checks article - no mention of gaming at all. Just a good "computing" experience.
    /checks source article with MSI release - no mention of gaming. Mentions A/V and music. Not gaming.
    /checks MSI's site under "Gaming" - notebooks, but no AIOs. AIOs are under "entertainment" (including "the thrills of instant mesasge.")

    ... so, I'd have to say MSI isn't putting out a "gaming" AIO.
