MSI’s Prestige 14 is a beautiful standard lamp it is as powerful as it is beautiful. Of the $1,399 laptop serves up a head-turning design, and a throw in a colorful display, and perform reliably over an Intel Core i7 processor and Nvidia discrete graphics. And even though the GPU has up to 9 hours of battery life. The comfortable keyboard is just the icing on the cake. But a poor display and built-in speakers, you can give creative professionals a break. This is the MSI Prestige 14 Review.
MSI Prestige 14 Review: Design
The MSI is a delight to behold in its depth, and the gray chassis is made of aluminum. He realized that the color was enough of a statement, then the MSI does not add too much extra flair. Fortunately, the world looks beautiful, the emblem of which has a slightly shiny finish to catch the light. But if you just want a little more drama, you turn on the laptop and show that it mimics a sound wave. It’s fun, but functional design.
When you open the laptop up, you’re going to see more of the grey base plate. An extra-wide touchpad, it takes up quite a bit of space on the palm of the hand. The keyboard is a soft wrap break. Once again, the MSI currently employs dozens of smaller bloomers, as the name of the value that is printed at the upper left-hand corner of the palm rest, and the glowing MSI, which is embossed on the bottom. But perhaps the most striking feature of the color that is on the hinge.
Such as the Asus ErgoLift design, and the Prestige of 14, hinged lift up the keyboard slightly for a more comfortable typing experience. What’s more, you can place the display completely flat for collaborative activities. If you don’t feel like traveling, with a USB Type-C hub, and the Prestige of the 14th has a long way to the bridge. You will get a couple of USB 3.1 Type-A ports on the right-hand side next to the headphone jack. On the left side, you’ll get two Thunderbolt 3 ports and a microSD card reader.
At 2.8-pounds and is 12.6 x 8.5 x 0.6-inches, the MSI Prestige 14 it is a beautiful pink, and it’s almost cool. It’s lighter than the Asus ZenBook 15 (UX534F) (3.7 pounds, 13.9 x 8.7 x 0.7 inches) and the 15-inch Lenovo Yoga C940 (up to 4.4 pounds, 13.9 x 9.4 x 0.7 cm). It’s true, they’re both the 15-inch system. In order to keep things in perspective, Dell’s XPS 13 (and the end of 2019 at the latest) it’s just a bit more lightweight at 2.7 pounds and 11.9 x 7.8 x 0.5 inches.
The keyboard and Touchpad
Although the keys feel a bit shallow, they give a slight click as you type. The keys have to be unpleasantly large, they will certainly greater than that of the competing systems, and to provide a reasonable amount of distance between them. I pressed the button to 85 words per minute on 10 fast fingers typing test, which is well above my 70 wpm on average. The white light is bright enough for typing in a dark room very easily. 5.5 x 2.5 inches, it’s larger than I’m used to it, but my fingers are quickly getting used to the extra space. Browse through the web page and run on the Windows 10 gestures and it was fast and responsive.
MSI Prestige 14 Review: Display
It is an anti-glare protector, it can be a double-edged sword. On the one hand, you don’t have to worry about annoying reflections. On the other hand, it can also have another vivid panel, looking a bit lethargic. The 14-inch display, a 1920 x 1080 screen on the Prestige, it falls somewhere in between. Watching The Lovebirds trailer, and the color was so vibrant that I could see the subtle auburn, new york, on This Ear in the tresses next to the neon pink accent on her multi-colored, one-horned hood. The brightness of Kumail Nanjiani’s gold sequined jacket helped to show the various folds in the clothing.
As you experiment with the color of their capacity for the production of the Prestige of 14, and 112% of the range of the sRGB color has been measured. This is a value that is less than 122% of the premium laptop category, but it is more colorful than the Asus ZenBook 15 (103%), and the Lenovo Yoga C940 (105%).
The Prestige of the 14 it only reached an average of 269 eggs. This is a long way from an average of 358 nits, or 432 eggs from Yoga, C940, but well within the range of the ZenBook 15 (279 nits).
Typically, the MSI, and Nahimic provide you with a great listening party. But the small, low-hanging speakers from the Prestige of the 14th, the day is a little bit slow. Although you can adjust the volume to the max and mess around with the Nahimic of the presets (Music, Movie, Media, and Gaming), the laptop couldn’t complete our short self-assessment test in the laboratory. I was very sad when I heard about the heart-Throb of the ‘Bone + Tissue”, because the singer has an impressive vocal range, has been robbed of its natural resources, and the creation of a frame of the performance. It was almost as if I was listening to a track on an old record player. The synth and the bass sounded dull, and the weakening of the overall song.
While it’s certainly not as powerful as an Nvidia in the RTX Frame or the chip in the Prestige, the 14 WEB 1650 Max-Q GPU with 4GB of VRAM you can play several games in high frames, depending on the configuration. It is also more than adequate for a mid-level of the editing of the content. The Prestige of the 14th claimed the lives of up to 61 frames per second a premium laptop, the average Race is 3 to 150 frames-per-second. Set up with your own the Nvidia GTX 1650 Max-Q, GPUs, Asus ZenBook 15, and the Lenovo Yoga, C940, and scored a 153-167 fps (frames per second), respectively.
When we ran 3DMark Fire Strike, the Prestige gained 14 6,689, hitting an average of 6,135. However, it was not enough to beat the ZenBook 15 (6,783) or Yoga-C940 (7,478). And if you’re not doing any of the work, the editing, the laptop relies on integrated Intel UHD GPU for the Graphics to keep things up and running.
MSI Prestige 14 Review: Performance
The content designers need to for the multitasking you’re in good hands with Prestige 14 And A 1.6 GHz quad-Core Intel Core 10710U processor, with 16GB of RAM. I’ve seen an episode of Love is Blind, and in Series with 20-extra Google Chrome tabs. The laptop does not show any signs of lag or slow down.
However, the Prestige of the 14 gave mixed results in our tests with synthetic, with a score of 3,982 in the Geekbench 5.0, which measures the overall performance as well. The laptop is not serviced in an average of 4,305 prizes of a laptop. The ZenBook 15 reached 4,410, with the Core i7-10510U the CPU, the 9th-Generation Core i7-9750H the CPU, the Yoga-C940 reached 5,530.
When we did our video transcoding test, it took 14 minutes, and 1 second to convert 4K video to 1080p, which is faster than a 19:37 on average. The Asus ZenBook 15, and a Lenovo Yoga-C940 posted the fastest time of 13:17 and 11:11 respectively.
The Prestige of the 14th was received with a degree of vengeance on the file transfer test the system with 512GB M. 2 PCIe NVMe SSDS, which is duplicated 4.97 GB of multimedia files in 5 seconds, for a transfer rate of 978.7-megabytes-per-second. The system of medium-613.8 MBps, as did the ZenBook 15 (771.1 MBps, 1 TB PCIe NVMe SSD), the Yoga-C940 (463 MBps, 512 GB SSD).
MSI Prestige 14 Review: Battery Life
Look at the life of the battery, don’t you think that the Prestige of the 14 and even I had a GPU and a discrete. But, in spite of the increase in demand for power in the party, and the MSI lasted just 9 hours and 49 minutes on our battery test (continuous web surfing over Wi-Fi. The MSI is fully consistent with an 8:39 average, as well as Yoga, C940 (8:46), and the ZenBook 15 (8:34).
While its chassis is made of metal, the Prestige, the 14 does not exceed the amount of our comfort threshold of 95 degrees. When we measured the touchpad and in the center of the laptop, after the 15 minutes of HD video, we’ve seen temperatures from 84 to 95 degrees, respectively. At the bottom of the laptop, it reached 93 degrees. They are all well below our comfort threshold, of the time.
Price and Configuration Options
I have had the pleasure of seeing the $1,399 the first iteration of the MSI Prestige 14 Pink. It has a 1.6 GHz quad-Core Intel Core i7-10710U processor, 16GB of RAM, a 512GB M. 2 PCIe NVMe SSD’s in the Intel-UHD Graphics, the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 Max-Q GPU with 4GB of VRAM, and a 1920 x 1080 resolution. In addition, the system comes with a laptop sleeve, a mouse, and a keyboard of a company mascot. The company also has a small USB Type-C hub, with two USB 3.1 Type-port, and a micro-USB port, microSD card slots, and an SD card reader and an Ethernet port.
MSI Prestige 14 Review: Conclusion
The $1,399 notebook is more than just a head-spinning frame, which gives a beautiful (although a bit dim) the display, performance, reliability, and up to 9 hours of battery life. The keyboard is also very impressive.
Even so, if you are looking for a creative professional, I want a brighter screen and better audio quality. The performance could have been a little bit better. If you want a little more oomph, and a brighter screen, you might want to take a closer look at the $1,429 Lenovo-Yoga-C940 (15-inch). But for creative professionals who are looking for a powerful, talent-rich notebook, the MSI’s Prestige, the 14 is the way to go.
The MSI Prestige 14 offers solid performance, more than 9 hours of battery life and the design of the chassis, in a color that is bold-faced.
