Reviews for the MSI Commercial 14 H A13

70% MSI Commercial 14 Review
Source: PC Mag English
MSI’s new business laptop line comes with slightly fewer pros than cons on the final tally. The Commercial 14's powerful performance, three-year warranty, high-quality sustainable build, and broad connectivity all help it deliver lots of value. However, we think MSI needs to include a larger keyboard and a better webcam the next time around. It also didn’t impress in our battery life test, though it still lasts long enough for this class. Finally, for the price, the laptop could do with a slightly sharper or deeper-color display. With that, the Lenovo ThinkPad E14 Gen 5 remains our favorite budget- and- small-business laptop, but the Commercial 14 deserves a look for its superior processing power, and for the option to work with MSI to custom-configure a Commercial for your organization's exact needs.

There are hardly any tablets in this display size range anymore. For subnotebooks, on the other hand, it is the standard format.

The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small and therefore easily portable. The smaller display also has the advantage of requiring less power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is more strenuous on the eyes. High resolutions are more likely to be found in standard laptops.

The company is also active in workstations, servers and industrial automation. MSI has offices in North America, Europe, Asia and Australia.


70%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
