PC gamers are a very discerning bunch, but they’re willing to spend large sums of money to have high-end hardware that can run all of their favorite games at a high resolution and framerate. Performance is key in the gaming world.

With that in mind, we’re looking at an all-in-one gaming PC today, which is not a combination that usually goes together. Essentially, we’re seeing laptop hardware running on a larger screen. Does it stack up to a desktop gaming PCs? Is it better to get a gaming laptop? Keep reading the review to find out!

Best of all, we have an MSI G Series AG220 21.5-inch All-in-One to give away to one lucky reader! Keep reading to the bottom to find out how to win.

Introducing the MSI G Series AG220 21.5-Inch All-in-One

MSIALLInOne1

Today, we are taking a look at an all-in-one desktop that’s aimed at gaming. That right there is a confusing label, since PCs like this aren’t traditionally known for their high-end hardware – rather they’re meant for space saving and convenience. These are not things PC gamers traditionally are willing to trade for power and performance.

The MSI AG220 retails for around $1100 on Amazon. As far as competition goes, you won’t find any. There just aren’t all-in-ones on the market that offer a dedicated GPU for gaming. Of course, that alone is a bad sign. Why aren’t other companies making gaming PCs in this smaller all-in-one form factor? I don’t want to give the answers away just yet, so you’ll have to keep reading the review to find out if the tradeoff of using mobile hardware is worth it, if you’re better off going with a gaming laptop (like the MSI we reviewed before MSI GS70 StealthPro-024 Gaming Laptop Review and Giveaway MSI GS70 StealthPro-024 Gaming Laptop Review and Giveaway We've decided to grab an $1,800 MSI GS70 StealthPro-024 gaming laptop and see how well it can compare to a desktop. Read More ), or just sticking to the tried and true traditional gaming desktop.

Initial Impressions

MSIALLInOne3

The box for the this MSI all-in-one is positively massive, which is obviously the first thing I noticed. It’s packaged well, and it’s clear that it can handle the rigours of being shipped.

The first thing I noticed was that it included a mouse and keyboard, a fact not listed on the Amazon description. It’s a nice little bonus that I didn’t expect to find, but we’ll talk more about that later.

MSIALLInOne4

From there, the next thing you can’t help but see is the distinctive style of the computer itself. We’ll jump more heavily into the design in a bit, but my initial impressions were positive as far as looks go.

MSIALLInOne16

They say first impressions stick, and MSI definitely delivers in that regard. The PC itself looks great, the mouse and keyboard feature the same red and black color scheme as the PC itself, and there’s really nothing negative you can say it about it at first glance. Does it keep that positive feeling once you plug it in and turn it on, or does it all fall apart from there?

Design

As far as the design of the computer itself, the MSI is beautiful. It has a vibrant 21.5 inch LCD display, and all of that is surrounded by black and red. Everything comes together into a piece of gaming hardware that will look great on any desk.

MSIALLInOne14

The computer is held up via a slick kickstand on the back that can be adjusted to accommodate a wide range of viewing angles. Whether you like to sit tall or low, you’ll be able to have the display angled perfectly.

MSIALLInOne12

Tucked under the wide kickstand are the ports. You’ll find an HDMI input, and output, as well as a VGA port. You’ll also find a headphone and microphone port for users who want to use their own speakers instead of MSI’s built-in offering. For network connectivity, an Ethernet port is included, as well as Wifi.

MSIALLInOne25

For peripherals, there’s a generous three USB 3.0 ports and two USB 2.0 ports. Two are along the side of the computer, with the other three sitting on the back. Above the USB ports on the side, you’ll also find a 3-in-1 card reader for pulling data off those memory cards.

MSIALLInOne7

There’s only one small issue I have with the physical design of the computer, and that’s the glare on the highly reflective display. As long as you position the computer where a light isn’t shining directly, the screen looks beautiful, but it’s definitely something to keep in mind.

Specifications

If you’re buying a computer with the goal of playing PC games, you want to make sure it’s packed with the specs you need to run the games you want to play.

  • CPU: Intel Core i5-4200H 2.8 GHz
  • GPU: NVIDIA Geforce GTX 860M 2GB GDDR5
  • RAM: 12 GB (one 8GB stick and one 4GB stick)
  • HDD: 1TB (7200 RPM)
  • OS: Windows 8.1

As you can see, the specs on offer here are kind of right down the middle. It has a powerful mobile GPU, but it’s no comparison to high-end desktop model. The Core i5 processor is sufficient for gaming, but it’s definitely a chip that demanding physics can push to the limit. The 12GB is fine for most games, but you’ll occasionally run into some that are looking for 16GB in order to run as smoothly as possible.

MSIALLInOne2

For the same price, if you were to look at a traditional desktop, you’d find much higher specs. You’d be able to find a Core i7, and a comparable desktop GPU. Of course, you would need to purchase a separate monitor, which will up the cost a bit, but you’d also be looking at a more powerful (and ultimately upgradeable) device.

Included Mouse and Keyboard

MSIALLInOne24

MSI has thrown a mouse and keyboard in the box, which is nice, but unfortunately the keyboard is cheap junk. It seems as though MSI grabbed the cheapest hardware it could throw in, which is quite disapointing, as it would be nice to get something that at least rivals a laptop’s built-in keyboard. The buttons stuck while in use, it’s thin and just doesn’t feel good for playing games.

MSIALLInOne20

The mouse, on the other hand, is quite useable. It’s not going to rival a top-of-the-line MMO mouse like the Razer Naga Razer Naga, Logitech G600 MMO Gaming Mice Review and Giveaway Razer Naga, Logitech G600 MMO Gaming Mice Review and Giveaway Next to a good keyboard, a mouse is one of the most important tools in a PC gamer's toolbox. For some genres, a mouse is even more important than a keyboard. After all, it allows... Read More , but it will get the job done, and as someone who personally prefers a smaller mouse, I could actually see myself using it. If you prefer a beefy mouse to wrap your giant hands around, you’ll probably hate this one.

MSIALLInOne19

Neither the mouse or the keyboard is anything special, but it’s nice that MSI at least included them to get you started. I would have liked to have seen something a little higher quality, but it’s better than nothing.

Gaming Usage

For playing PC games on this computer, the experience itself isn’t bad, but it’s definitely not top-of-the-line by any stretch. For example, Divinity: Original Sin Old School PC RPGs Are Coming Back And These 4 Games Lead The Charge Old School PC RPGs Are Coming Back And These 4 Games Lead The Charge A number of developers are making games that will remind you of everything you loved about the classics, but with modern presentation and design ideas that can pique the interest of a new generation. Read More won’t go past Medium settings. It’s not even that the PC gets laggy, the game just tells you that your system can’t handle it. Divinity is not the most graphically intense game, either.

I couldn’t find a game that it wouldn’t run at least on Medium settings. Sure, you’re not going to be running brand new games on Ultra settings (though you can run games like Dota 2 3 Of The Most Noob Friendly Dota 2 Heroes, And Some To Avoid 3 Of The Most Noob Friendly Dota 2 Heroes, And Some To Avoid How do you even know which heroes to play when you get started? Which heroes are good for beginners? That's exactly what we are going to cover today. Read More with the settings cranked up), but the 860M is a solid mobile GPU that can at least run anything, just not that well.

The key phrase there is “mobile processor,” because that’s what this is. You’re making a weird trade off with the form factor, because it’s not as portable as a laptop, but it features the same hardware as one. Of course, the screen is quite a bit bigger, so you do gain that, but you could also get a full desktop with an even bigger screen for about the same price. It’s tough to see what market this is aiming for.

The screen glare rears its ugly head again while playing games. You’ll have to make sure there’s no bright light source shining on the screen, or it will definitely impede your ability to see the screen well. If you’re playing a competitive game, disadvantages like this can mean the difference between winning and losing.

Gaming on the MSI AG220 isn’t a bad experience, but it’s nowhere near perfect. I have a hard time finding a justifiable reason to go with this over a laptop or desktop. It has the disadvantages of a laptop (weaker hardware), but it loses the major advantage (portability).

Non-Gaming Usage

Of course, if you buy a machine like this, you’re going to want it to do more than just play PC games. For $1,200, you should expect this to perform as your main computing device. As far as using it for applications outside of games, you won’t find much that it can’t run. After all, games are generally one of the more demanding types of programs, and even though it struggles to run the most powerful games on ultra settings, programs like Photoshop run without issue.

MSIALLInOne10

For video editing, the Core i5 does a decent enough job, but again, not fantastic. A Core i7 would be able to handle the load much more easily. If you’re not a professional video editor, and you are just looking to make some YouTube videos of your gameplay, you’ll definitely find that the MSI all-in-one is up to the task.

Browsing the web and using apps work as you’d expect. It’s running Windows 8.1, which might turn away some users, but we’ve reached the point where it’s hard to find a branded computer running Windows 7. If you’re going to buy new, you’ll inevitably have to Windows 8.

MSIALLInOne9

As a general purpose computer it’s good. It’s small, so it won’t take up a lot of space on a desk – but as we mentioned before you could get a similarly specced laptop with the portability or a better specced desktop. That’s a flaw of the all-in-one form factor though, and not specific to this model.

Wrapping Up

In the end, it’s hard to justify buying an all-in-one for gaming. The benefits just don’t add up. Sure, it takes up less space than a desktop, but you still can’t carry it around like you can a laptop.

At the same time, it’s not as powerful as a traditional desktop, so it sits right in mediocrity. The only reason I could see someone needing this is if they don’t plan to move it around, but they only have a very small area in which to use it, and they want a bigger screen than a laptop offers. Otherwise, you’re better off going with a laptop or a desktop.

Our verdict of the MSI G Series AG220:
Think about your requirements and buy either a desktop or laptop instead – this is not a machine built for gaming.

      Ok if that's really the case (winters are long in switzerland as well) i wish you all the luck (while a broken ass like me could make use of it as well). But health well i guess i can give you some of mine, i have some spare health. No money but healthy as hell, should i whine? certainly not! It counts a 100 times more as all the money in the world to be healthy and have a healthy mind. Thus i foremost wish you a good health and a little luck with this giveway.

    • Gernot
      January 21, 2015 at 10:02 am

      Somehow it's obvious that such a machine has limitations, half fish - half bird, can't fly well as a bird but neither swims as good as a fish. But i guess it can matchup with my Medion Computer from Aldi (a large warehouse chain from Germany, the Machine is extremly "cheap", procesoor is ok, but the built in gfx card isn't suitable for gaming, fortunately i had a "spare" GForce to build into this desktop machine) Peripherals like keyboard and mouse you can send from unboxing directly to the trash. But the price of such machines is that low that this won't matter. A Gamer since 1980 but not not a wealthy one, can happen.

    • Gernot
      January 21, 2015 at 10:25 am

      $1200? that's quite enough, if i think what my medion has cost me, certainly a "piece of crap" but $400 is something quite different. Didn't looks as sleek as this one, but imo that plays absolutely no role, to me at least, it could be in a rusty tin can, it has to it's job not to look sleek (a craftsmans view to things). One could say you pay the $1200 for the design, am i wrong? Like always "mehr schein als sein", i would say typical for the 21th century, polished from the outside - rotten inside, just like the ones who sell it to you.

    Love this laptop !! I love to enter sweepstakes and giveaways but my computer doesn't go as fast as I want it to and there are things I can't do with my computer. I would think a gaming laptop would let me do it all !! Thank you for giving us the chance to win this !!

    I so pray to god for this. I could never afford a gaming pc and still can't ever afford one. I'm hoping that I win but to be honest I probably won't.

    in your view, could this machine be well re-purposed for business use and general surfing?

    You had me until the specs you chose were listed. I had to look back up at the date this things was written as it appeared at first to be a component's choice list from 2010. What would be nice is to see how this thing is with the OTHER components that are available, i.e. NVIDIA GTX 970/980, Intel Core i7, 16GB of RAM, etc.

    ....maybe now I will go read a review about the new 2015 Ferrari complete with an engine lifted from a Ford Escort....

    Limited desk space, like with the kids' loft beds, still makes a bit of a case for something like this.

    Has anyone used vidoebenchmark.net? The GPU value chart lists prices that doesn't exist, currently HD 7870 is listed at price ~23, but no links was inserted to prove such claim. Is the site bogus? Or just some sort of wrong programming?

    This is why I love this site - honest reviews!
    I had actually considered purchasing and/or building a gaming PC, this has sold me on the idea of doing so - it's just a matter of getting the mix right.
    Cheers and thanks for the great post!

    Kind of inevitable conclusion for an All-in-One. I own a mediocre gaming laptop and built myself a budget gaming desktop and although I am happy with both, I don't think I would know what to do with a computer that has the weak hardware of a laptop mixed with a non-portable desktop.

    I totally agree with the wrap-up. If I'm gaming, I want to be able to upgrade, not buy a new one. And I don't want a heavy laptop. Great review
