Reviews for the MSI Prestige 14 Evo A12M-089

80% MSI Prestige 14 Evo Review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
Much more than a dull business laptop, the MSI Prestige 14 Evo is a slick and light PC with a solid keyboard and unusually good control over the powerful Intel Core i7-1280P CPU. It lets you run the processor almost unnervingly hard, offering great flexibility for more advanced PC users.
