Reviews for the MSI Modern 14 B4MW-048

MSI Modern 14 (B4Mx) review – the Ryzen processors are the stars of the show here
Source: Laptop Media English
One thing is sure about this laptop. Power and performance is not a problem. It manages to achieve crazy high frequencies for a 15W processor (although it works at 25W under load), and light gaming is not an issue, whatsoever. This makes productivity tasks easy as a breeze, and the 64GB maximum memory in dual-channel mode will certainly provide a lot of help.

AMD Vega 6 R4000: Integrated graphics card of the Ryzen APUs based on the Vega architecture with 6 CUs (= 384 shaders) and a clock of up to 1.500 MHz.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

1.3 kg:

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.
