    All-in-one PCs seem to be picking up in terms of demand with almost every big name in the PC industry having a couple of offerings. MSI's newest unveiling is the Wind Top AE2010, which succeeds the AE1900. The new Wind Top graduates to a 20-inch touchscreen with a native resolution of 1600 x 900 pixels. Under the hood is a major hardware change. While its predecessor used an Intel Atom dual-core processor atop Intel 945GC chipset, the AE2010 boasts of a more powerful AMD Athlon X2 low-wattage model, paired with an AMD 7-series chipset and ATI Radeon HD 3200 integrated graphics. It takes the memory offer all the way to 4 GB of dual-channel DDR2-533. 320 GB of storage, gigabit Ethernet, 802.11b/g/n wireless network, a DVD writer, six USB ports, and a 4-in-1 card reader makes for the rest of the package. MSI will start selling these next month.

    While their usefulness is pretty widespread throughout the industry, the primary thing they do is save you is space on your desktop. Because they're not laptops, however, you get the benefit of a larger screen, more potent hardware (being that the power + cooling capabilities are much greater), more comfortable controls (full-sized mouse + keyboard) and a lower overall price, by cutting out expensive equipment like batteries, complex hinges and the like, not to mention the cost of warrantying an inherently mobile product.

    It's a win-win for manufacturers and mainstream consumers alike.
