How to open MSI Cyborg 15 (A12V) - disassembly and upgrade options

70% MSI Cyborg 15 review: RTX 4050 power under $1,000
Source: Tom's Guide English
The MSI Cyborg 15 has a lot going for it It has a cool design, great performance and costs less than $1,000. The display could be brighter and a bit more colorful, but the 144Hz refresh rate is welcome. And while its battery life isn’t great, the Cyborg 15 also doubles as a good productivity device, so long as you keep it plugged in. If you’re looking for a more affordable option, the $749 Acer Nitro 5 is a good choice. The $1,199 Alienware x14 is another worthy option if you don’t mind paying $200 more. But for what it offers for $999, the MSI Cyborg 15 is absolutely worth considering if you’re new to PC gaming or you’re on a tighter budget. Plus, it just looks too cool to ignore.

15.60":

15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.

The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.

75%: 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.
