Under the hood is a mobile Core i7 CPU and a Nvidia GTX 670MX graphics card with 3GB of dedicated memory. The system is powered by 12GB DDR3 RAM which can be expanded to 16GB. Making bootup quick is a 128GB SSD and internal storage is a 1TB 3.5" HDD.

MSI has added a 2MP webcam, a Blu-ray drive, a 3-in-1 card reader, two 5W speakers, Gigabit ethernet, four USB 3.0 ports, HDMI-out, HDMI-in (that's a big deal) and the other standard ports and features.

The company has not revealed U.S. pricing, but the European price is 1999. The PC will hit Europe by the end of the month. No word on the U.S. date.

it's not, for the hardware it contains I can get you a standard desktop with a gaming case for less then 800$

I'll stick my foot up your ass.

Yes, but for how much can you get a 27-inch touchscreen display?

Exactly; this is an expensive toy for enthusiasts with spare cash, not an alternative for the regular consumer.

I should probably clarify that I am in support of that. It looks pretty cool and if I had the money to waste then I'd buy one - why not?

HDMI input for the display, or for the computer?

Why would you want a touchscreen for a stationery gaming PC?

People have been spending $2000+ on all in one computers for years. They are called iMacs. I don't care what O.S. a computer runs, I'm not spending that kind of money for mid grade specs. Sad to say the apple product actually has more appealing specs in some areas, looks better and doesn't cost more.

What the hell you are talking about? This is exactly lot more appealing than Apple' crap iMacs, because this actually runs games. You pay for performance, not a freaking apple batch. Bottom line, PC with design and power. I wish I could afford it. I'd rather spend my money more horsepower than design. I just wish I could, but I'd never buy a mac, they are just stupid useless shit.

Converted to canadian this thing costs $2600. For $2350 you can get the 27" iMac with 2560*1440 IPS display, GTX 680MX and i7 3770. They have an option for an ssd if you want.

This article doesn't state which type of disply this MSI has but it's 1920*1080, GTX 670MX and a "mobile" i7 which I assume is undervolted or underclocked or something.

To me it looks like the iMac has better specs.

I am also not a fan of apple which is why I said it was sad. As far as I know you can install Windows onto a Mac so you can still play games on it.

Basically what I am saying is that this is no more a gaming pc than a similarly priced iMac.
