Reviews for the MSI Prestige 14 A12UC-228
Source: It Pro
The good parts of the Prestige 14 are excellent. The chipset imbues it with an impressive level of performance while the design, build quality and keyboard are absolutely top-notch. The screen is good too; granted it’s a rather traditional Full HD non-touch affair, but technically it’s better than the norm in this category of laptops and at this price point. The speaker system could be better though, as could the webcam. Both of these drawbacks wouldn’t take much - in terms of effort or money - to fix. The real drawback is the battery life. For a machine designed for on-the-go productivity, six and a half hours is a good distance shy of ideal and isn’t really good enough. Users who don’t stray far from a power outlet will be more than happy with the Prestige 14 - the more nomadic worker, perhaps less so.
