MSI Prestige 14 A10RB Review: Beating the Competition with Value
Source: KL Gadget Guy English Archive.org version
The MSI Prestige 14 is a surprisingly powerful laptop in its class and there is a lot to love about it, but what makes me really hyped is that MSI is selling it for an attractive price tag of RM4899, this is at least RM500-RM1000 cheaper than similar spec competing laptops, which you can probably use the savings to invest in an eGPU and a last gen GPU to go with it, as you’d probably want to do so to potentially convert it into a creative workhorse.

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.

i7-10710U: Comet Lake based low power hexa-core processor (technically identical to Whiskey Lake and still produced in 14nm++). The CPU cores can clock between 1.1 and 4.7 GHz (all 6 cores 4.1 GHz max.) with HyperThreading (12 threads). The integrated memory controller supports DDR4-2666 and using cTDP up/down the performance can be adjusted by the OEM (12.5 - 25 Watt possible, 15W default).» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

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.

78%: This rating is not earth-shattering. This rating must actually be seen as average, since there are about as many devices with worse ratings as better ones. A purchase recommendation can only be seen with a lot of goodwill, unless it is about websites that generally rate strictly.
