In April, NEC announced plans to release a 3D all-in-one (AIO) desktop PC sometime this year. They were probably hoping to lay claim to being the first company to bring such a product to the market but they’ve been beaten to the punch by MSI, who is set to release its Wind Top AE2420 3D AIO PC that also boasts a touchscreen and is also the first AIO PC to feature USB 3.0 ports. Sporting a 24-inch Full HD (1080p) multi-touch display comprising a 120Hz LED panel, the AE2420 3D comes with one pair of rechargeable wireless active shutter glasses and 2D to 3D conversion capabilities.

Built to meet the demands of running 3D entertainment the AE2420 3D is also a pretty decent machine for everyday use. It is powered by a choice of Intel Core i5/i7 processors alongside a discrete ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5730 graphics card with 1GB of DDR3 VRAM that supports DirectX 11. There’s also 4GB of RAM, 1TB SATA2 HDD and a Blu-ray disc drive. Audio-wise the unit delivers 2.1 channel surround sound via two 5-watt channel speakers and a 10-watt subwoofer, while THX TruStudio Pro technology allows the audio to be enhanced to 7.1 surround sound.

On the connectivity front there’s a 6-in-1 card reader, HDMI input, VGA output, eSATA port, 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth and six USB ports – two of which are USB 3.0. The unit comes with a wireless keyboard and mouse and a copy of Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit.

MSI’s Wind Top AE2420 3D AIO PC will be available in the U.S. from September 20 with prices starting at US$1,799.
