MSI Announces World's First 3D All-in-One PC

If you hadn't heard the Hannover horror - also known as CeBIT - is just around the corner, but wisely we're staying home because a) we've already been to CES and Mobile World Congress in the last two months (much better shows), and b) consequently manufacturers are largely tapped out of goodies right now. Furthermore, those that aren't are largely announcing them ahead of the show - like MSI...

The PC maker has announced the first Full HD 3D all-in-one PC this week and it combines this with multi-touch, an LED backlit panel and bundled 3D glasses.

Dubbed the '3D HD Wind Top', it will offer the choice of Intel Core i3, i5 or i7 CPUs and pack discrete graphics. Screen size(s) and connectivity weren't mentioned, but at least 24in seems a must to have a Full HD 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution, while its media centric nature means Blu-ray should be nailed on too. It's easy this gestimating lark.

On top of this MSI will also be refreshing its high-end all-in-ones with the 22in 'AE2280' and 24in 'AE2420' which bring Core i3/i5/i7 options as well and discrete graphics. These will be backed up with 19in 'AP1920' and 'AE1920' all-in-ones and 'Wind Box DC520' and 'DE220' Mini PCs which conform to the European Union’s new EuP (Energy using Product) environmental directive. Consequently MSI claims the duo's average hourly electricity consumption is more than 90% lower than that of a traditional 300W PC.

Pricing and availability are unknown at this stage, but dear tower PC, your days are looking ever more numbered.

The ATX PC's days will only be numbered until all-in-ones and laptops get their act together and become more green by standardising themselves so you don't have to chuck the whole thing away when one part becomes insufficient.

As for this machine it'll be interesting to see if they include a powerful enough graphics card to play 3d games.

hhhm multi touch on a 24" inch screen? i use a 24" screen and cant even reach it in my normal sitting position.Are you supposed to put the whole thing on your lap?

You're supposed to use these AIO touch screens on counters say in the kitchen, or on a coffee table, or simply on a desk. They're designed to integrate with your lifestyle. What makes some awesome is the ability to plug in your xbox or ps3, and just use it as a regular tv.

In five years apple will crank something like this out and it will be called inovation. This is to early though.

thought about and maybe if your up and about making food in the kitchen just tap the screen to change songs or something but surely a remote would be far better,using it as a full blown desktop you would have to hunch over the screen with your arms at eye level,they would be aching after 1 minutes use.

apple have had the imac for years same thing but without 3d and multitouch(both gimmicks i imagined would have almost no use).

heres an idea for apple how about a hand held device about 10" or so with multitouch stick some velcro on the back then you can stick it to any wall in the house,including over the hob for the wife.

"Over the hob for THE wife"

Ooh, that was unnecessary.
