What you need to know
- The new MSI PRO AP241 All-in-One (AiO) PC has been announced and is now officially available on Amazon for $949.
- That particular config features an Intel Core i5-11400, 8GB of RAM, and a 250GB SSD.
- MSI notes that other configs of the MSI PRO AP241 AiO are also available, that scale up to include components such as the Intel Core i7-11700 processor and 64GB of RAM.
MSI has a new all-in-one (AiO) PC on the loose: The MSI PRO AP241 AiO. If you want the fun of a desktop and monitor smushed into a single device, that's where this new release and the best all-in-one PCs come into play.
Here's a bit of the press release to help set the stage for the PRO AP241 AiO: "The All-in-One PC features powerful processors, eye care technology, and an IPS panel for a wide viewing angle and enhanced viewing experience. The PRO AP241 includes the desktop-grade H510 chipset with new 11th Gen Intel Rocket Lake CPU, a major step up from other All-in-One PCs on the market, which utilize mobile-grade processors."
To reiterate: These are MSI's words (including its claim about competing machines' processors). MSI says the PC supports up to an Intel Core i7-11700 in the processor department and up to Intel UHD Graphics 750 for visuals, as well as a max of 64GB of RAM. However, the listing available on Amazon right now for the MSI PRO AP241 AiO features 8GB of RAM, an Intel Core i5-11400, and no specifics on graphics. It also ships with Windows 10 Pro (as opposed to Windows 11). This version of the machine will set you back $949.
You can stay on the lookout for the maxed-out config via MSI's site, though for right now, it seems the weaker version is what's available to spend money on, and even that's "temporarily out of stock," according to Amazon.
The everything machine
If you want a 23.8" FHD IPS LED non-touch monitor built right into your PC (or vice versa), MSI has the machine for you. Sporting an Intel Core i5-11400 and 8GB of RAM, it isn't the most powerful PC on the market, but it's a convenient one given its form factor.
