Reviews for the MSI Prestige 14 Evo A11M-005

82.5% MSI Prestige 14 Evo laptop review: Intel is catching up | Notebookcheck
While the normal Prestige 14 is primarily aimed at the multimedia sector, the 14 Evo is designed for business users due to the lack of a dedicated GPU. Find out how the Tiger Lake chip performs against various AMD rivals in our review.
MSI Prestige 14 (2021)

What holds the Prestige 14 back from a stronger recommendation is a handful of design demerits. The flex in the aluminum lid and bottom panel is concerning, the display could be brighter, and the flimsy touchpad can't match the excellence of the keyboard. The biggest drawback, however, is the frequent fan noise. It's not surprising that the cooling fan kicks in during intensive graphical tasks, but it also made itself heard when opening a dozen tabs in Chrome or having more than a few apps running at once. The fan usually cycles off after a minute or two, but it's still annoying. Ultraportable shoppers seeking better fit and finish may want to spend a bit more for a premium machine like the Dell XPS 13 or the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon.

MSI Prestige 14 EVO Review: Great Performance And Value
Source: Hot Hardware English
If there's any nit to pick with this MSI laptop it's thermal performance. We can't help but wonder if some extra speed is locked away behind a thermal system that struggles to keep its 28 W CPU under target temperatures. Thankfully, this is forgivable because of its premium, light-weight design and reasonably well-behaved acoustics. Users who want the best top-end performance in this weight class for a very attractive price point would be well-served to look into the Intel Tiger Lake-powered MSI Prestige 14 EVO.

Review – MSI Prestige 14 Evo A11M: Premium ultrabook at a premium price
Source: NLT English
Overall, I actually like the MSI Prestige Evo 14 is actually a great laptop. It performs really well, has an overall decent battery life overall, a good screen, a fantastic keyboard, and most importantly – high-speed ports. There are a few shortcomings here and there but to me, they’re not a huge deal. Though I would like to see a touch-screen option for the Prestige series. That’ll be a fantastic alternative to the ultrawide trackpad and its palm rejection.

The MSI Prestige 14 Evo Review: Testing The Waters Of Tiger Lake
Source: AnandTech English
But the one area where MSI has done very well is on price. As of this writing, the Prestige 14 Evo starts at just $1149 USD, and that includes the Core i7-1185G7, 16 GB of LPDDR4X RAM, and a 512 GB SSD. Due to Intel now segmenting its CPU stack with differing GPU sizes, which followed what AMD has done with Vega, the starting price is a very compelling package. You can pick a couple of colors, and a couple of drive sizes, but unlike most of the competition, the base model is pretty much fully decked out. Despite a design that can’t quite match some of the others in the market, MSI’s Prestige 14 Evo does pack a punch for a reasonable price.
