23-inch MSI WindTop AE2410 features Sandy Bridge, fast device charging over USB 3.0

MSI announces new 23.6-inch WindTop AE2410 all-in-one desktop with new Intel Sandy Bridge CPU and fast device charging.

We can't say we like the busy design of MSI's new 23.6-inch WindTop AE2410 all-in-one, but it has some intriguing features, and starts at a reasonable price.

For $899 when it comes out later this quarter, the AE2410 will offer Intel's new Core i7 2630QM mobile Sandy Bridge CPU. You can opt for a discrete graphics card upgrade with this system, but its integrated Intel HD graphics core on the CPU may provide enough basic gaming and home entertainment capability for casual consumers. We'll know more once we can test a few of these mainstream Sandy Bridge systems.

On top of the CPU, MSI says it has also tweaked the USB 3.0 jacks on the AE2410 with "Super Charger" technology to let you charge USB-based mobile devices even if the computer is turned off. Power-efficiency enthusiasts, take note.

Other specs for this system include 4GB of DDR3 SDRAM, a 1TB hard drive, DVD burner with optional Blu- ray upgrade, and 802.11 b/g/n wireless networking.
