MSI to Bring Out Three Gaming AIOs Next Week

Looking to get your hands on a new gaming machine that excels in performance while saving space? MSI Computer Corp. has three new models to choose from, deemed as "the world's first and most powerful gaming All-in-One computers:" the 27-inch AG270, the 24-inch AG240 and the 22-inch AG220. All three will be made available next week starting at $1,249.99 USD.

On the processor and GPU side, we have the Intel Core i7-4860HQ (2.4 GHz, 3.6 GHz) powering the AG270, as well as the Nvidia GeForce GTX 870M or GTX 880M. In the smaller AG240 and AG220 models, MSI has packed the Intel Core i7-4700HQ (2.4 GHz, 3.4 GHz) along with the Nvidia GeForce GTX 860M GPU. The screens spanning all three models include 10-point touch input and a Full HD resolution.

On the memory front, the AG270 and AG240 include 16 GB of DDR3L-1600 memory, whereas the AG220 only has 12 GB of DDR3L-1600 memory. For storage, there are two 128 GB mSATA SSDs in RAID 0 (Super RAID) and a 2 TB 7200 RPM hard drive in the AG270. The AG240 and AG220 have a single 128 GB mSATA SSD and a 1 TB 7200 RPM hard drive.

As for connectivity, these AIO gaming PCs have both HDMI output and HDMI input, a handful of USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 ports, a 3-in-1 SD card reader, and a 2MP Full HD webcam. All three have Wireless AC connectivity, although the AG270 seems to be dual-band and the other two are single-band. The AG270 and AG240 offer Blu-ray drives, while the AG220 has a DVD Super Multi optical drive.

"MSI's squadron of gaming AIOs takes gaming to the next level and outperforms any other unit on the market," says Andy Tung, CEO of MSI Pan America. "The state of the art components shreds gaming benchmarks, delivers an immersive gaming experience and is hands down the most superb combination of style and performance."

For customers looking to play their favorite games on the PC, all three models pack the ingredients you need for an immersive, trouble-free experience. These form factors cater to the gaming crowd that really has no desire to upgrade each component. Based on the hardware specs shown here, all three AIO PCs appear to be a great investment.

All three models come packed with a full 104-key gaming keyboard and a 3,500 DPI gaming mouse. They will be available at Newegg, Amazon and all other major e-tailers next week.

    Yeah, I fail to see how this trumps a small form factor PC and a dedicated monitor. It seems to compromise performance too much for small savings of space.

    I like AIO's more than desktops for their paltry form factor and battery backup. You can't criticize every product on cost-effectiveness. And given the configuration, they are pretty competitive to high-end desktops.

    If I didn't want to upgrade, I'd buy a console...
