Actually it wasn't old school.

This kind of AIO computers from MSI, ASUS and etc its well used as an POS, and normally this kind of connections as COM and LPT its for POS systems, for example the POS printers normally(said normally because it can use RJ11 and USB too) uses RS232 port that need to be converted to COM and the CASHIERS normally uses an RJ11.

So as you can see this kind of connections are still used today, and MSI put it there to inprove the way you use it, you can use as an home computer or an POS system :)
