MSI Modern AM242TP All-in-One PC – Perfect for Business & Productivity

Ever since the COVID-19 pandemic originally hit the world by storm, several companies and business owners saw themselves with no other option but to ask their employees to work from home. However, many of those people didn’t really have an appropriate PC Setup to work from their home-offices, as many business workers and tech. workers worldwide were used to working from their company’s headquarters. Furthermore, while some of those employees still have access to their personal laptop (or even to a business laptop), that’s not really the same as working on a desktop PC, as those tend to be reasonably more powerful than most traditional business laptops nowadays. Now, if this is your case and you’re still working from home, then you should consider upgrading your home-office’s PC Setup by getting an all-in-one solution like the MSI Modern AM242TP All-In-One PC.

The MSI Modern AM242TP is all-in-one PC that’s designed to improve its users’ productivity, featuring a 23.8″ IPS LED Backlight Display Screen at 1080p FHD resolution with MSI Anti-Flicker technology, a 256GB SSD and 16 GB RAM, all while also coming with Windows 10 Pro OS already pre-installed.

Moreover, this all-in-one PC can also be used as a second monitor, all without priorly having to boot up its system.

Last but not least, the MSI Modern AM242TP also comes together with an external MSI 1080p FHD Webcam that’s designed to bring its users the best video quality possible, which ultimately makes this all-in-one PC ready for Business Video Calls straight out of the box.

Now, let’s have a more detailed look at it and check out everything that this high-end all-in-one PC has to offer its users.

DESIGN & SPECS

Starting with its size, this all-in-one PC comes at a reasonably compact size, measuring 21.31 inches long by just 6.89 wide / thick, by 16.02 inches tall (541.40 x 175.09 x 406.86 mm).

In addition, the MSI Modern AM242TP All-in-One PC also features a very simple and truly minimalist design that ultimately gives it a stylish and ultra-modern look, thus allowing it to easily blend in within any desk space and match any home-office furniture.

At the back-side of the device, we have an Adjustable Stand that can have its Viewing Height adjusted between 0 inches up to 5.11 inches high, as well as have its Viewing-Angle adjusted between a negative Tilt Angle of -5° up to a positive Tilt Angle of 15°.

Furthermore, this all-in-one PC system also supports the installation of any Standard VESA Mount (75 x 75 mm models), or alternatively, you can instead use it with MSI’s very own MAG MT81 VESA Monitor Arm.

Now, moving on to the system’s main components. For the system’s screen, this all-in-one PC features a 23.8″ IPS-Grade LED Backlight Display Screen that boasts a 1920p x 1080p Full-HD Screen Resolution at a 16:9 Display Ratio, thus bringing users a wide viewing angle for an enhanced viewing experience.

It’s also worth nothing that the system’s 23.8″ IPS Display Screen is designed to work as an Anti-Glare Panel against any potentially reflected light or glare (which can be very fatiguing to a user’s eyes), thus basically reducing the contrast, colors and sharpness of the display. This can greatly help to reduce eyestrain when using the system’s screen for longer periods of time.

In addition, the system’s screen also runs the company’s proprietary MSI Anti-Flicker technology, which eliminates screen-flickering and effectively reduces eye fatigue caused by prolonged use time, all of which ultimately helps to enhance your productivity.

Moreover, the system’s 23.8″ IPS Display Screen can also be set to work in a special “Less Blue Light Mode”, which triggers the system’s display screen to filter-out a user’s visual exposure to blue light during daily use.

By enabling this special Screen Mode, users can have a more comfortable viewing experience for the system’s screen, especially when working for long periods of time.

Finally, the system’s 23.8″ IPS Display Screen also comes powered by MSI’s Instant Display Technology, which allows you to use the PC’s Screen as a monitor without priorly having to boot up its system.

On that note, keep in mind that as soon as an external device (such as a laptop, for example) is connected to the system’s dedicated HDMI Input port, its screen will be immediately turned on to either Mirror or Expand the other device’s screen functions.

On top of that, the MSI Modern AM242TP also supports the use of a second monitor (for expanding the system’s own screen functions) via its dedicated HDMI Output port.

For the system’s audio, the MSI Modern AM242TP also integrates a set of two (x2) 3W Realtek ALC233 HD Audio Speakers that allow users to listen to music or even participate on a Voice Call while working with this all-in-one PC.

Speaking of Voice Calls, since more business workers rely on online video meetings nowadays, this all-in-one PC also comes together with an external MSI 1080p FHD Webcam that’s designed to bring its users the best video quality possible.

That ultimately makes this all-in-one PC ready for Business Video Calls straight out of the box. Note that since this is an external Webcam, you can also choose to remove it if you ever need more privacy.

OTHER HARDWARE SPECS & OPERATIVE SYSTEM

We’ll now talk about the system’s internal components. For its CPU, the MSI Modern AM242TP All-in-One PC comes equipped with a Intel Core i5-1135G7 Tiger Lake Processor (4C/8T – 2.4 to 4.2 GHz with 8MB Cache) that boasts a CPU Speed between 3.60 and 4.30 GHz (6MB Cache).

Then, for its GPU, the system uses an Intel Iris Xe Graphics Card.

As said before, this all-in-one PC also features a 256GB M.2 NVMe SSD and 16GB DDR4 for its RAM (2 x 8GB at 3200MHz).

Then, to keep all of its components running at a low temperature level, this all-in-one PC also comes equipped with a Silent PRO Cooling System, which is partly composed of a Server Grade Thermal Module that’s responsible for handling the cooling of the system’s many different components, such as its 256GB SSD, its Intel Core i5-1135G7 CPU, and its two (x2) 8GB DDR4 RAM sticks.

To be a little more specific, all of the system’s most important hardware components are installed on the top side of the device’s body, which helps to ensure the system’s has a reliable air flow so that that the warm air produced by those components can easily move out of the MSI Modern AM242TP’s enclosure.

This basically helps to ensure that the system’s temperature stays perfectly under control for a cool, stable, and silent operation, which ultimately results in an extended life cycle for the system as a whole.

Finally, it’s also worth noting that all comes running smoothly on the Windows 10 Pro Operative System, which already comes pre-installed.

INTERFACE – INPUT & OUTPUT PORTS

Now, we’ll have a look at the system’s entire interface, meaning all of its input and output ports for different connectivity options, all of which can be found at the back-side of the system’s 23.8″ IPS Display Screen.

Starting at the far-left side of the system’s 23.8″ IPS Display Screen, we have two (x2) USB-C 3.2 (Gen 2) ports, as well as two (x2) USB-A 3.2 (Gen 2) ports.

Not only can these USB-C and USB-A ports be used with USB-flash drives, external HDDs and external SSDs, but also feature support to Super Charger – meaning Windows’ resident program – which makes a system capable of revising power supply mode of your USB port for recharging any USB-enabled devices (such as a Smartphone or tablet).

In addition, there’s also a Mic Input / Headphone Output combo port.

Then, at the back-left side of the unit, we also have an integrated Kensington Lock, a HDMI Input Port, followed by a HDMI Output port, two (x2) more USB-A 2.0 ports, and a RJ45 Ethernet / LAN Port for wired internet connectivity.

Close to the top-side and still and the back, we also have one more USB-A 2.0 port, which is respectively meant to be used for the system’s included external MSI 1080p FHD Webcam.

Lastly, at the back-right side of the system’s monitor, we also have a 2.5′ MSI Storage Rapid Upgrade Design, which basically allows for an easy maintenance of the system, thus helping you to conveniently and very easily upgrade or maintain its 2.5′ storage.

And sitting just below that 2.5′ MSI Storage Slot, there’s also an integrated 5-Way Navigator Button that provides users with an easy OSD (On-Screen Display) Control, meaning that you can use this 5-Way Button to easily navigate the system’s Display Screen Menu.
