Deal | MSI Prestige 14 is one of the cheapest 11th gen Intel laptops with Thunderbolt 4 you can get at the moment
Originally on sale for $699 USD late last month, the MSI Prestige 14 is now even cheaper at just $664 after applying both the coupon code '2021EGGIEUPS' at checkout and the $100 rebate card when purchasing from Newegg. The Prestige 14 is MSI's last generation model targeting office users or prosumers in the same vein as the Dell XPS or Lenovo ThinkBook series.
The deal is notable for its impressive specifications relative to the low sale price. Users are getting the latest 11th gen Intel Tiger Lake-U CPU with a spacious 512 GB NVMe SSD, 16 GB of RAM, 1080p IPS display with full sRGB coverage, and even multiple Thunderbolt 4 ports to be compatible with external GPUs and multiple 4K monitors. It's a much more versatile system than any other subnotebook you can find in the same $600 to $700 price range at the moment.
The main drawback to the sale is that the Prestige 14 chassis and build quality aren't quite up there with the best from Dell, HP, or Lenovo. Its base and lid, for example, flex more readily to give a more budget impression. Other than that, it'll be tough to match its performance and Thunderbolt features for the given price.
