The Power of One Brief: Top reasons to choose HP BladeSystem

However, don’t let these results put you off. When put to its intended use as a second PC for quick and easy Web surfing, emailing and basic office-type work; the Wind Top AE1900 performs perfectly well, looks great and is very enjoyable to use.

Even runs Windows 7, at a push

It’s also fine for basic multimedia entertainment. Its DVD playback is great and those DVD menus work really well with the touchscreen – just don’t push your luck with HD content. It would have been even better, though had it come with a TV tuner and a remote control.

There’s no official support for Windows 7 but, un-deterred, we went ahead and loaded up a copy of Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit Edition which ran just fine, although performance fell just slightly short of being able to deliver a smooth live TV experience in Media Center.

Verdict

This AE1900 is an attractively designed touchscreen PC, which is easy to use and looks good to boot. However, it’s not really powerful enough for heavy duty computing or gaming and the screen resolution is quite low. It’s also running XP Home, which means no Media Center and no free upgrade to Windows 7. ®

Ideal as a second PC or for undemanding general use. Indeed, the touchscreen may well see this model become the kitchen computer.
