MSI's AE2010: can even be bolted to your living room wall

The Wind Top AE2010 is built around a 20in, 1600 x 900 display and a dual-core, 1.5GHz AMD Athlon X2 3250e processor. Early shipments will arrive with Windows Vista Home Premium pre-installed, but you'll also receive a free Windows 7 upgrade coupon inside the box.

Graphics are handled by an AMD ATI Radeon HD 3200 card which carries 128MB of DDR 3 memory, while the machine itself boasts 4GB of 533MHz DDR 2 Ram. A 320GB hard drive is built into the all-in-one too.

Around one side of the PC you'll find an optical disc drive capable of dual-layer DVD burning. The body’s side is also home to a four-in-one memory card reader and six USB ports, MSI said.

Mount the AS2010 onto your kitchen wall using the PC’s integrated supports and it could become your wireless window onto the web, thanks to integrated support for 802.11n Wi-Fi. A 1.3Mp webcam is built into the machine’s body.

The Wind Top AE2010 starts at around $650 (£400/€456) and is available now, but a UK price hasn’t been announced. ®
