MSI PRO AP241 All-in-One PC is ready for Microsoft Windows 11
As more and more people work from home, they are quickly realizing that their dwellings are simply too small to accommodate a large desk and workstation. While some folks have turned to makeshift solutions like laptops atop kitchen tables, other workers want proper desktops and designated work areas.
While desktop towers may be too bulky, all-in-one computers could be the perfect option. Since the PC is integrated into the monitor, it has a far smaller footprint than a traditional desktop. Today, MSI launches an elegant such computer that professionals should adore. It is available in both black and white colors, so you can better match your home's decor. Called "PRO AP241 All-in-One," it ships with Windows 10, but is absolutely ready for an upgrade to the upcoming Windows 11.
"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. Featuring up to Intel Core i7-11700 processor, the PRO AP241 is responsive with low load times when multitasking and remains cool through heavy workloads due to the server-grade cooling system designed to reduce CPU thermal throttling," says MSI.
The company further says, "The PRO AP241 comes with an MSI Full HD Webcam with an integrated microphone. Bluetooth 5.1 and built-in Wi-Fi provide enhanced wireless device compatibility with headsets, mice, keyboards and more, optimizing setups and reducing wire clutter. When taking calls, the IPS panel display has a wide viewing angle and full HD resolution (1920x1080) giving a crystal clear video call experience as well as easily readable text and graphics."
