The Teacher’s Touch
Like the idea of a touch-screen PC where your fingers do the teaching but like most schools you can’t afford the HP TouchSmart. MSI’s Wind Top AE1900 is a good alternative though with an 18.5-inch screen rather than the TouchSmart 22-inch display. Completely equipped, it’s got everything from an Intel Atom processor, 1GB or RAM and a 160GB hard drive to 4 USB ports, a flash card reader and a Web cam. It has high-end details like a DVD Super Multi optical drive and SRS surround sound. The best part is that it uses a fraction of the power that a full PC uses and runs quietly only consumes 50 watts or less. It costs about $500.
