There are plenty of options for folks who want a computer now-a-days. You can have the traditional monitor and tower, or if you're short on space, you can cram it all into one, and get yourself an aptly named "all-in-one" system. For example, you can get your hands on the MSI Wind Top AE2280 right now, if you are so inclined. And while it may look like a standard AiO solution for your home or office, it's hiding something underneath the hood that may just sway your fence-sitting decision.

The MSI Wind Top AE2280 is the first PC that's going to fully integrate the full-featured Hollywood-standard THX TruStudio Pro audio system. That means you'll get advanced surround sound quality audio, while getting theater-like experiences. At least in the audio department. As for other features, those are listed below. You can choose from an Intel Core i3 or i5 processor, both of which will come with the company's Turbo Boost technology, making sure you get more juice when you need it.

MSI's Wind Touch Generation III software is also included, which means you'll be able to touch the display as much as you want, even with multitouch in mind. And, you'll have multitouch in mind when you start playing around with MSI's YouCam, which will give you the ability to add visual effects to images that you take, right with the touch of your finger. Other features include YouPaint, which will let you have a blast with digital paints. Pricing wise, you'll start at $949.99 and work your way up, depending on what features you want. The display, on one last note, is 21.5-inch display. It also features integrated 802.11b/g/n WiFi, 4GB of DDR3 RAM, and a 640GB SATA2 hard drive. Full press release below.
