MSI Gaming all in one AG270 is pretty awesome
 
Check out the MSI AG270

If only it was 2560x1440 I would buy one for sure!
It has an i7 and a GTX 880M with 8GB of graphics memory. I didn't even know you could get 8GB on a mobile card!

MSI Brings Beastly 27" All-in-one Gaming PC to Market

Why would you make an 880m suffer though 1440p? I'd prefer it to push a smaller amount of pixels for a little longer .. though I guess at 27"...

Or you know, bring both resolutions to the table.

Unfortunately, this thing is going to be out of date really quickly. As Kepler rolls out into higher SKUs, you'll see GTX 770-style performance out of a GPU that can fit the TDP requirements of most AIO's.

Its interesting, but I agree with others. Its a bit low on graphics power to push a 27" screen with a decent resolution. That said it is still a pretty interesting setup if it comes at the right price. I am surprised they didn't put a second cooler in there given all the empty space available.

Yea, I thought it was strange there was so much empty space. A second 880M would have been nice and a second fan. I like my Dell U2711 which is why I would want 2560x1440.

HAHA, mobile desktop replacement...... replacement.

If I was working out of Hotels more then oilfield camps, and in one place for extended periods I'd rock this instead of my 17" Clevo D900F.

Would take one heck of an expensive pelican case to protect this during travel, had a hard enough time getting a custome case for a 24" dell monitor many years ago, this isn't exactly meant to travel.

Cool idea by MSI, but that stand does not look like it is very adjustable. I'd much rather get their new line of GS gaming laptops and hook it up to an external monitor if needed...

I'm much more interested in that motherboard. If you compare the way the I/O stuff are mounted to the Gigabyte thin series, it looks like the MSI board could be a bit thinner. Unfortunately, it looks like it got a MXM GPU socket which is not cheap and easy to buy. Even MXM-Upgrade closed its door.
