MSI Introduces First All-in-One with Kabini APU

MSI has introduced a new All-in-One, and while not a big gaming unit, there is still something special about it -- namely, that it is the first All-in-One to feature AMD's Kabini APUs. The machine will be known as the AE220.

The units will come with either an E2-3000 APU or an A4-5000 APU. Beyond this, the units come with 21.5" Full-HD screens, feature 4 GB of DDR3 memory (which is upgradeable to 8 GB), either 500 GB or 1 TB hard drives, 802.11n WiFi, and can consume up to 65 W.

MSI has also opted to equip the AE220 with its Blue Light Control technology, which reduces the amount of blue light emitted from the display to reduce eye fatigue and damage. Also aboard, users will find MSI's Flicker Free technology as well as Creative's Sound Blaster Cinema tech.

There was no information on when the AE220 would be available in retail, nor was there any information on pricing.

  • Let me guess they'll be priced 600-800$ for low end laptops parts.

    Look I like all in one's as much as the next guy, but I'm not spending any money on a platform that's hardware locked. And the lifecycle is like 2-3 years, I'm not going to just throw a perfectly good PC away because it's old. What do you think I am an apple user?

    Look I'd kill to have an AIO that competes with the 27" imac. I have one at work and it's nice not having to worry about the tower. I'd gladly pay 1.3k for a Windows 7 AIO with the specs of the 27" Imac.
