Slim and Windy - MSI @ Computex 2009 (Updated with Videos!)

Or you can completely opt for the AMD route with the AE2010, which uses an AMD Athlon 2650e (1.6GHz) processor together with an AMD 780G chipset. Maximum memory is up to 4GB, which explains why Windows Vista Home Premium is the default choice of OS.

With the largest display in MSI's lineup and the most powerful specifications, the AE2200 has quite a billing to live up to. But its Core 2 Duo E5400 (2.7GHz) processor, Intel G45 chipset and 4GB memory support should see it comfortable at the top.

NVIDIA's Ion platform is getting some love from MSI with this AE2201 AIO PC. The dual-core Intel Atom 330 inside is paired with the Ion's GeForce 9300 based graphics for a system capable of playing HD1080p videos. It's a good thing that the 22-inch display has a native resolution of 1920 x 1080 then.

For those who already have a display and immune to the 'attraction' of touch interfaces, MSI has a few nettops that serve similar purposes but without integrating the screen.

The Wind Box DE200 sees the Atom 230 processor surprisingly paired with an ATI Radeon HD 4350 graphics. This was despite the chipset being an Intel 945GC. While we have no complaints about the graphics option, the CPU will no doubt be the weak link here.

The MSI Wind Nettop BD130-E meanwhile sees a dual-core Intel Atom 330 together with the standard 945GC chipset (meaning GMA 950). With its 2GB of memory and 160GB hard drive, it's not exactly the weakest of machines but it's definitely not going to handle 1080p videos, which does affect its media center, multimedia-centric target audience.
