The configuration is loaded considering the price. Competing flagship Ultrabooks from Dell, HP, or Lenovo would cost well over $1000 if equipped with similar CPU, RAM, and storage options.

Best Buy is currently selling MSI's latest business laptop for $300 off the original launch price. When considering that the model is barely two to three months old, the price cut is significant for anyone in the market for a new Ultrabook.

The Prestige 14 EVO is an evolution or the original Prestige 14 with both a new design and updated Intel Tiger Lake CPU. In fact, the Best Buy deal comes with the Core i7-1185G7 which is the fastest U-series Tiger Lake processor for laptops at the moment. Most other Tiger Lake laptops come with the slightly slower Core i7-1165G7 instead.

Based on our time with our own unit, the MSI system is lacking in ports and some users may not like the soldered RAM. Even so, the small form factor, high performance-per-watt and multiple Thunderbolt 4 ports should give the laptop long legs with excellent docking station support.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
