MSI Pro 24X 10M: Roundup

So, taking the testing results from the video, it’s clear the MSI Pro 24X is a very capable all in one PC designed for home, office, and commercial environments. At home it can be used as a media centre PC, home office PC or general home daily use cases like the Internet, video, word processing and email tasks.
It would also be right at home in an office or commercial environments performing similar tasks and added productivity factors like the HDMI port to add a second external monitor or projector.

It’s quite the aesthetic piece too, with a nice grey/silver lower bar on the front, sides and rear which gives a metallic appearance to match the metal arm and foot. I’d like to have seen the arm a little longer as I was looking down to the screen like I would using a laptop.

The lack of a webcam on an all in one product designed for a professional and commercial environment is a shame and I would like to see one added in a future revision. Laptops including them with a privacy barrier are becoming increasingly popular and MSI are a well-established company with the capability to add this to a high standard.

I/O: A total of four USB 3.2 Gen 1 ports, two USB 2.0 ports, HDMI out, separate headphone and microphone jacks, VESA mount and Kensington lock. It’s a shame the lack of any USB Type-C ports are here as it makes the I/O look dated.
That being said, the dual LAN ports with rollover and BIOS-level protection is fantastic and adds a level of internet protection not usually seen on computers.

Under the hood: Intel AC Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.2, a 512GB M.2 NVMe drive and the ability to add more storage with the single 2.5” SSD or hard drive into the tray slot is a great addition.

CPU temperatures under the heaviest PC mark 10 workload peaked around 70’C which shows that while the calling has an aggressive find curve and can be loud at points it does adequately cool the processor during demanding workloads. Again, I feel like this could still be tweaked to not be so aggressive during lower demanding workloads that saw random fan speed spikes and high noise levels.

Finally, the option of either the Intel Core i3, i5 and i7 CPUs are great depending on the customer’s situation and/or preference once again.

So with the MSI Pro 24X 10M being an attractive 24-inch all-in-one PC with an Intel Core i7-10510U, 16GB of DDR4 RAM, a 512GB NVMe SSD, Intel AC Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.2, and a copy of Windows 10 home, I believe an asking price of £749.99 at box.co.uk is fair.

However, the critique list is long so the MSI Pro 24X won’t be getting my recommendation today. That being said I’m keen to see any improvements in another revision in a review on the channel in the future.

Big thanks to MSI for sending the Pro 24X all-in-one PC in for review.
