London, 15th February, 2010: MSI, the manufacturer of notebooks and components, today announces the launch of the Wind Top AE2220 Hi-Fi all-in-one PC. The AE2220 gets its Hi-Fi moniker from its ground-up acoustic concept. MSI has placed special emphasis on strengethening the SRS virtual surround technology, as well as MSI’s exclusive Premium Sound Technology.

The AE2220 Hi-Fi’s sound performance delivers strong and true bass, penetrating mid-range vocal sounds and clear high frequencies that are not harsh to the ears, providing users with a sweet, soft and warm listening experience perfect when using the built in blu-ray.

The AE2220 uses two full-range 5W hi-fi speakers mounted through an acoustic suspension system and a magnesium-aluminium alloy membrane, usually found only in advanced acoustic situations. Combined with MSI’s patented noise-cancelling technology, the AE2220 offers a truly unique, harmonious sound, even after extended use.

With up to 8W dynamic range, volume is increased by 3-6 dB, so whether you are listening to a symphony or playing a 3D game, both will create an immersive audio experience. The Wind Top AE2220 Hi-Fi compares favorably to other high-end audio systems, so users don't need to purchase additional speakers to achieve high quality sound.

But the AE2220’s technical feats don’t stop there. Its stunning 21.5” Full HD (1920x1080) 16:9 multi-touch display, powered by Microsoft Windows 7, enables hands-on control of your desktop, offering a more natural and responsive way to interact with your PC.

Unusually, the AE2220 offers both VGA and HDMI inputs, enabling other high-definition devices to output through its display. This means anything from a sattelite HD set-top box to an X Box 360 console can be connected and played through the AE2220.

To drive such a powerful display, you need a powerful processor – and the AE2220 certainly isn’t lacking in this department. Powered by NVIDIA ION graphics and the latest Intel® Core 2 Duo processor, it can effortlessly handle 1080p HD bluray movies, resource-hungry applications and sophisticated 3D games. Connectivity extends to 6 USB 2.0 ports, a 6-in-1 card reader, built-in 1.3 megapixel webcam and a bluray drive with dvd rewriting ability.

Like other Wind Top products, the AE2220 is designed to meet all computing performance needs while reducing energy consumption. The AE2220 meets the latest efficiency requirements of ENERGY STAR Version 5.0 Specification for Computers, and can reduce electricity costs by approximately 35 percent compared to conventional PCs.

The AE2220 is priced at £799.99 inc vat and will be available now. For more information please visit

MSI Notebook’s goal is to become the most trusted name in laptop computers. We have worked hard over the years to enhance the user’s experience. We stand by our principles of breakthroughs in design, the pursuit of excellence, and technological innovation as we have continued to raise the bar for ourselves and have accomplished a great deal of pioneering work in the industry. Examples include developing Turbo Power, ECO Engine and Cinema Pro technologies. MSI Notebook was also the first laptop manufacturer globally to be awarded True Dolby Home Theater Surround Sound certification.

MSI Notebook designs its products with the consumer in mind starting at the R&D stage. To ensure that consumers use MSI laptop computers with peace of mind, each MSI laptop computer undergoes a series of detailed testing before it is shipped from the factory. We test pressure and humidity, shock and vibration as well as the life spans of connector hinges, keyboards, and touch panels. Some of the other tests (around 30 tests in total) include pressure and dropping, I/O connectors, noise, antistatic capabilities, and system performance. We carefully check each detail employing the most rigorous testing standards, so that the consumer uses their new MSI laptop computer knowing that MSI Notebook stands behind its products.

So far, MSI Notebook has introduced 7 series of notebook computers to meet the expectations for every consumer, and they are the Gaming Series, Aesthetics Series, Professional Series, Entertainment Series, Ultra Portable Series, X-Slim Series and Value Series.
