MSI Wind Top AE2280 all-in-one PC


MSI Wind Top AE2280: An all-in-one touchscreen PC

Plenty of features, ships with a good amount of RAM

Very glossy screen, poor gaming performance

The MSI Wind Top AE2280 is an all-in-one PC that isn't as attractive as its competitors, but it is nonetheless a solid home desktop computer with the added bonus of a touchscreen.

The best ever!


This computer is wonderful, the programs are great, you wont have to upgrade for quite sometime it comes with everything that you will need for home or office/business. i would recommend this system to anyone, great graphics for any application

This could very well be due to my ignorance, but the remote that came with the computer, worked well when I first used the system, but now I can't get it to work

PC Pride of Ownership


Support answers quickly with reasonable solution to an ATI driver I fubared. The website makes it difficult to find drivers, but there is a nice working activex plugin to find updated drivers - there are not many yet but I did not need them. In general...

Bye Bye Wires, hello Bluetooth, Multi-touch screen. Its good looking and built solid, its quiet and stays cool. The Audio is surprisingly good, the jacks are in the right place. The software included is useful and unobtrusive. The display is snappy and...

The wireless keyboard and mouse are just workable.. the keyboard is cramped and the keypress feels flimsy, the mouse has no side to side scroll and they operate at 2.4ghz. I felt proud enough to upgrade to a backlit wired keyboard and a full function...
