MSI Launches 27-inch All-In-One Gaming PC

It was at CES last summer that we first heard about MSI's upcoming all-in-one gaming computer, and ever since then there have been many little details seeping out of the rumor mill. Now MSI has released its AG2712 Gaming All-in-One PC.

Packing a 27" 1080p matte display, and supporting up to 10-point multitouch, the machine certainly shows promise as an all-in-one PC. To quench the (light) gamer's thirst, MSI has equipped the AG2712 with a mobile Core i7 CPU and Nvidia GTX 670MX graphics, which packs 3 GB of graphics memory. System memory is handled by 12 GB of DDR3 memory, expandable to 16 GB. Storage is taken care of by a 1 TB 3.5" hard drive in combination with a 128 GB SSD.

Lastly, MSI has opted to give the AG2712 a 2 megapixel front camera, two 5-watt speakers, a Blu-Ray optical drive, a 3-in-1 card reader, four USB 3.0 ports, two USB 2.0 ports, Gigabit Ethernet, the standard headphone jacks, VGA and HDMI out, and most impressively, an HDMI in port. The last allows users to plug in their PS3 or Xbox 360, or any other HDMI compatible device, and use the computer as a big screen.

So far there has been no word on US pricing, although European MSRP pricing is expected to be between €1899 and €1999. The AG2712 All-in-One Gaming PC will hit European shelves just prior to the end of April, with no official word yet on U.S. availability.

    If I bought an all in one, its also good for them to get into a market that is quite under-saturated since there is really only this and the maingear one.

    I totally screwed that up, I can't type just now. I meant that if I was to buy an all in one, I would get this or the maingear, and that it isn't a very saturated market right now.

  • Who buys these products? €2000, seriously? How is it all-on-one if there's no mouse and keyboard? Why is this even called a gaming PC when it's just an oversized tablet? And finally, 1080p is way too low for 27'' display.

  • For that price you could get a laptop with those specs that even has a 2nd slot for SLI GPUs. For that price, you could get TWO PCs which will outperform this thing in every way imaginable. For that price, you could get an infinitely better PC AND a very nice HDTV that is much,much bigger than that screen and has a way better sound system.

    I don`t get it why they use mobile components on AIO desktop PCs ...make it a bit thicker and put full sized desktop PC components otherwise this is just a laptop with a 27" monitor, that you won`t have it mobile no matter how thin they try to make it... so better thicker and more powerfull..
