New Wind nettop sports 18.5" display

The Wind Top AE1900 is a nettop all-in-one with a 18.5" 1680x1050 display, an Atom 230 CPU, GMA950 video, up to 2GB RAM (it'll likely come with 1GB, though, as it's running Windows XP), a wecam, gigabit ethernet and a 160GB hard drive. It has 802.11 b/g/n WiFi and a DVD player. The AE1900 uses no more than 45 watts of juice and MSI claims its noise levels won't exceed 26 decibels, which would make it "equivalent to the surroundings of a library." Now, I'm almost certain I had an Apple monitor that looked just like this about 7 years ago... Wind Top AE1900, A Sleek Touch of Style [MSI]

    Yep, I still have a 17 inch Mac Cinema display that looks a lot like this…back when transparent and white plastic was “in”.

    Yeah that’s true. The GMA950 is pretty much gacksome.

    In an upcoming Atom-based system build I am using a PCI graphics card instead.

    It’s still a nice looking little thing, as long as you can get inside and mod it a little.

    You could again thanks to the magic of hacking and stickers!

    dang … sooooo close.
    actually, this may be what I want in a non-gaming machine. No temptation to hop over to a game when the GPU can’t handle it.

    GMA950 – Gack! I want a good GPU please.
