MSI Modern AM271p: all in one PC

A combination of a 27 ”monitor and a business laptop that could activate a laptop in many cases.

Introduction, external

All-in-ones represent a very small portion of PC sales, although in many places they would be better off with these than the much more popular notebooks. We are primarily thinking of laptops purchased for home use that never move from the desk after unpacking, are powered by the power grid 24/7, and the user reads the Internet on the Full HD screen of 15.6 ”and compresses to a small size. .control browser and office software with keyboard and trackpad.

In this case, an AiO might be a much better option – you don’t have to find the usual “box” space for desktops, no extra cables, but a full keyboard, mouse, and full-size monitor. a lot on ergonomics. Of course, all this is only true if the manufacturer does not make mistakes during the design. Let’s see how MSI did it!

The MSI Modern AM271p is classic, so the hardware is built into the back of an almost completely ordinary looking monitor, which, as we noticed, comes from a powerful business laptop, it is not at all interesting. Consequently, the design is dominated by the screen, which measures 27 ”and has a frame almost completely invisible when turned off on three sides. Of course, if we turn it on, it turns out that there is a frame here, but still not wider than 6 mm, except, of course, at the bottom, where the manufacturer’s logo is also located. In this way, the webcam has no screen space, it is included separately by MSI, which may not be a problem, so it is easier to configure a USB device with Full HD resolution and mechanical lock. Anyway, the only extra we get is a keyboard and mouse not included with the device.

As a monitor, the AM271p has a height-adjustable, tilting but non-rotating stand that has a standard VESA mount, so the unit can easily be mounted on a wall or “alternative” mount. The base itself is solid, non-slip, and requires an area of ​​250 x 185mm from the tabletop.

If you stand behind the back of the screen, you can see that the rest of the otherwise thin (15mm) panel, the rest of the hardware, has been integrated into a thicker part, and the controls and connectors have been added to this. also. The first are two: on the right side, there is a joystick that controls the screen, giving you a menu that is slightly lower than normal monitors.

It should be understood that the drop-down menu means, for example, the volume adjustment option, but it is grayed out as it is replaced by the Volume Mixer built into Windows. It was a convenient but undeniably cheap solution for MSI not to create separate firmware for the display. In addition to the joystick, there is another power button on the screen, which is on the left.

As for the connectors, they are distributed in three parts: there is a USB 2.0 port directly behind the bracket, in the middle facing upwards, and its main purpose is to conveniently connect the webcam. On the left are two more Type-C ports and two Type-A ports, all of which are standard USB 3.2 Gen2, offer 10Gbps of bandwidth, and there is also a combo analog audio jack.

The left side of the rear panel hides additional connectors: an HDMI input (the monitor also powers the monitor separately) and an HDMI output, two USB 2.0 and a Gigabit Ethernet connector.
