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.
80% MSI Prestige 14 Evo review: speedy with some slip-ups
Source: Laptop Mag English
The MSI Prestige 14 Evo blew me away with its color-accurate display, speedy video transcoding and spectacular Geekbench performance. Analyzing the Prestige 14 Evo’s strengths, I’d recommend this laptop for video and photo editors who need a machine that can handle all of their mid-level content-creation work. You’ll get nearly 11 hours of battery life, competition-beating video conversion, a durable chassis and a slim, lightweight laptop. There’s also a useful suite of pre-installed software for video and photo editing.

70% Msi Prestige 14 Evo Review: Fast But Flawed
Source: The Verge English
MSI’s Prestige 14 laptop line is traditionally marketed to content creators. But the Prestige 14 Evo is in a bit of a murkier spot. It’s priced below the Prestige 14, starting at $1,099, and it doesn’t have the discrete GPU or high-resolution screen that would render it a compelling content-creation machine. Despite its name, the Prestige 14 Evo is an everyday productivity laptop.

75% MSI Prestige 14 Evo: The good, the bad and the lovely
Source: PC World Australia English
Sound and speakers aside, the MSI Prestige 14 Evo is a solid and quite compelling addition to the MSI general purpose laptop line-up. I would like to see MSI rethink the positioning of the trackpad and the softness of the keys but, that said, it is still very user friendly. Visit MSI’s Prestige 14 Evo page for details and costing.

MSI Prestige 14 Evo Review - A compact quality laptop for professionals
Source: Tech Nave English
The one bad thing about this laptop would be the price tag, which isn't one that casual consumers would spend. For RM5199, you can get yourself a good gaming laptop that allows you to play games on higher settings. But then again, not everyone is a gamer. It's also slightly more affordable than the Prestige 14's RM5399 price tag, so the choice is yours.

MSI Prestige 14 Evo Review
Source: Mobile Tech Review English
Lisa Gade reviews the MSI Prestige 14 Evo 14” Ultrabook with Intel 11th gen Tiger Lake CPUs and Intel Iris Xe graphics. The MSI competes with consumer and business 14” laptops and is Intel Evo certified for long runtimes, instant wake, Thunderbolt 4 and PCIe 4. The Evo is available in 3 colors, has a full HD matte non-touch display, a fingerprint scanner and Windows Hello IR camera. It has USB-A port and microSD card slot unlike some competitors. It’s priced a few hundred dollars less than the premium Ultrabook competition like the Dell XPS 13, Razer Book and 13” M1 MacBook Pro. For those wanting NVIDIA dedicated graphics, there’s the Prestige 14 and 15 non-EVO models.

MSI Prestige 14 Evo Review: Portability, But at What Cost?
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
There will always be some sacrifices when cramming powerful hardware into ultraportable laptops, but overall MSI has done well, and the package you get is fairly balanced while offering value for money. If you prioritise portability, you should definitely check out this laptop. It doesn't have the discrete Iris Xe Max GPU like the similarly priced Acer Swift 3X, but these two 11th Gen 'Tiger Lake' laptops are comparable in many ways including hardware and portability.

MSI Prestige 14 (2021)
Source: PC Mag English
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.

Intel Iris Xe G7 96EUs: Integrated graphics card in Intel Tiger Lake G4 SoCs based on the new Gen. 12 architecture with 96 EUs (Execution Units / Shader Cluster). The clock rate depends on the processor model. The Tiger Lake chips are produced in the modern 10nm+ process at Intel.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.


MSI: Micro-Star International (MSI), is a Taiwan based computer hardware manufacturer since 1986 best known for desktop computer motherboards. MSI also designs and manufactures graphics cards, barebone PCs, notebook computers, networking products, servers, multimedia, consumer electronics, and storage devices. MSI, as most Taiwanese computer manufacturers, sells products on OEM/ODM basis. It also sells products worldwide based on its own brand name "MSI". The market share of laptops with the MSI brand is rather low.

MSI is not present in the smartphone market. As a laptop manufacturer, MSI has a medium market share and is not among the Top 10 global manufacturers. The ratings of MSI laptops are above average in the tests (as of 2016).


79.64%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
