MSI introduced the AP2021 entry-level all-in-one desktop. Featuring a 20-inch 1600 x 900-pixel touchscreen, the AIO ships with a detachable monitor-like stand, which can be replaced with a more touch-oriented tilt stand. The monitor stand allows you to rotate the screen, to switch to a portrait mode. Windows 8 comes pre-installed. Under the hood is an Intel Core i3-3220 dual-core processor (cheaper Pentium G2020 option available), 4 GB of single-channel DDR3 memory, a 500 GB 7200 RPM HDD, tray-in DVD SuperMulti drive, and connectivity/features that include 802.11 b/g/n WLAN, gigabit Ethernet, a multi-format card reader, stereo speakers, and a web-cam. A keyboard and a mouse come included. Depending on the options, the AP2021 should sell for around $700.
