MSI Prices Its 27-inch All-In-One Gaming PC

Earlier we showed you the AG2712, MSI's new gaming All-In-One PC. We've now been provided with more information on the computer, including its pricing and available configurations.

We already knew that all versions of the AG212 will feature the Nvidia GeForce GTX 670 MX Graphics card, a media card reader, HDMI and VGA outputs, Gigabit LAN, USB 3.0 ports and a variety of Ivy Bridge i5 and i7 CPUs for users to choose from. The system will also feature a HDMI input which will allow it to serve as a dedicated monitor and so should allow it to remain useful even when the hardware inside becomes obsolete.

The 27" LCD display will have a native resolution of just 1920 by 1080, rather than the 2560x1440 found on other popular displays of this size and can be equipped with a touch screen for a currently unknown price. The units will also sport an optical drive, although it is not known as to whether it is Blu-ray capable.

As is common practice with All-in-One computers, the hardware inside is based on a mobile platform and can be expected to be refreshed once Haswell is released and the USB 3.0 problems are resolved.

MSI's All-in-One Gaming AG2712 system will come out end of March in Europe, with a hefty starting price tag of €1,799. By today's exchange rates that is about $2350, although US pricing will probably be lower since the EU price includes VAT.

For those wanting a more affordable computer, MSI will also be releasing a cheaper 22" version, the AG2212, which starts of with a Core i3 CPU and features discrete graphics as an optional extra.

  • The phrase "complete rip-off" comes to mind

  • So, basically it's an over-priced, over-sized notebook?

  • LOL at that price. I could build a sweet small form factor gaming PC and get a good 27" screen with hundreds to spare.
