Reviews for the MSI Modern 15 A10RB
The Modern 15 is fit for budget-conscious users who need more power than the typical Ultrabook without spending too much on heavier higher-end options equipped with Core H CPUs and GeForce GTX GPUs.
Ultimately, the Modern 15 does everything most workers will need and can even entertain them with games. Its bulk and battery make it convenient to carry around town and only power users will really want for more performance. While price will depend on the SKU you choose, the recent launch of Intel’s 11th Gen laptop CPUs means that there are good deals to be found for it - under $1500. As such it’s a good value, mid-range laptop.

NVIDIA GeForce MX250: Successor of the MX150 and still based on the same Pascal GP108 chip (similar to the desktop GT 1030) but with higher clock speeds. Available in two versions, a normal 25 Watt version and a low power version with 10 Watt TDP and reduced performance. The 25 Watt version e.g. offers a 21% higher boost clock than the old MX150 leading to a 5% performance gain.
Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.
i7-10510U: Comet Lake based low power quad-core processor (technically identical to Whiskey Lake and still produced in 14nm++). The CPU cores can clock between 1.8 and 4.9 GHz (all 4 cores 4.3 GHz max.) with HyperThreading (8 threads). The integrated memory controller supports DDR4-2666 and using cTDP up/down the performance can be adjusted by the OEM (10 - 25 Watt possible, 15W default).» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
