MSI Launches New Wind Top AE Line Of All-In-One PCs

MSI always seems to make a splash at CeBIT, and this year is no different. The company is using the trade show to launch a slew of new machines, including a handful of All-in-One PCs. The 24" AE 2410, the 22" AE 2210, AE 2211 and AE 2240, as well as the 20" AE 2050 and AE 2070 are the latest Wind Top AE models, and they all utilize Intel's newest 2nd-gen Core processor family. If Intel isn't your cup of tea, AMD's new Fusion platform can also be ordered up, with all of the models 22" and up having THX TruStudio Pro audio and a 1080p panel.

You'll also find goodies like USB 3.0 and "5.1" channel surround sound, but evidently MSI is waiting until after the show to get down to the specifics. We'll be keeping an eye out for price and release, but it's doubtful that you'll have to wait too long to find out.

In order to complement the visual spectacle of the MSI All-in-One PC, its audio is hooked up with Hollywood-class THX TruStudio ProTM technology. Through its five core technologies that make for rocking sound capabilities, users can get the realistic and live-like audio effects they crave when watching any video. With just two speakers, users can be ensconced in the ripping surround sound of 5.1 channels — there's no longer a need to head to the theater to get great sound.

Every second matters—Don't waste your life on slow digital technology

The Wind Top AE series is equipped with high-speed USB 3.0 technology, which provides a transmission speed of 5Gbps that is ten times that of the USB 2.0. With the USB 3.0, it is possible to transfer 520MB of data from a 3.5" hard drive in only 1 minute and 41 seconds. Using a USB 2.0, the same transfer would take around 4 minutes. Compared with e-SATA, the USB 3.0 can perform at more than double the speed, making it the fastest transmission interface available on the market today. With the USB 3.0, the Wind Top AE series allows users to enjoy faster transfer of HD data, such as movies and videos as well as data in other large-sized formats, making life more efficient, convenient, and most importantly, saves you time. Furthermore, the MSI Wind Top AE series is hooked up with Super Charger technology, enabling devices to be charged through one of its USB 3.0 ports even when the computer is turned off, saving money on the electric bill and preserving your computer battery. Charging time is also 40% less. Do we have your attention yet?
