MSI announces another AIO PC
In the past few years we have come to associate MSI with high-end gaming laptops and all-in-one (AIO) PCs. True to the tradition MSI has announced another AIO PC, which, this time, is called AP16 Flex.
The AP16 Flex is not your ordinary AIO PC, though – according to MSI the machine is the world’s first convertible 10-point touch controlled AIO PC that can be used in a stand mode, hanging mode or flat mode. Moreover the AP16 Flex’s unique rotating kickstand can be flipped back 90 degrees to act as an upright stand for use as an all-in-one PC or attached to wall or cabinet for use as a large multimedia device. The computer has a 15.6-inch LED backlit display at 1366 x 768 pixels and decent hardware inside too – the computer is powered by an Intel Celeron J1900 processor with four cores at 2 GHz and has Intel HD graphics, 4 GB of DDR3L memory (expandable to 8 GB) and a 500 GB 2.5-inch HDD/up to 64 GB eMMC storage combo. The rest of the specs include 802.11n Wi-Fi, optional Bluetooth 4.0, three USB 2.0 ports, one USB 3.0 port, one LAN port and a built-in 2 MP web camera. The AP16 Flex runs Windows 8.1.
You may think that the AP16 Flex is an underpowered machine but this is not exactly the case. The computer is a business-oriented solution and energy efficiency is a top priority. That is why the processor used is a 10W TDP model and thanks to the energy-efficient hardware inside the AP16 Flex is a fanless computer too, which means it is dead silent.
No word on pricing as of now so if interested you should ask your local MSI representative for more information.
