Reviews for the MSI Prestige 15 A10SC

85.2% MSI Prestige 15 A10SC Laptop Review: One of the Best Dell XPS 15 Alternatives | Notebookcheck
Low-power Intel with low-power Nvidia work great together for anyone interested in a high-performance ultra-thin laptop. If MSI can address the throttling, then the Prestige 15 can give other popular 15.6-inch Ultrabooks from Dell, HP, and Asus a run for the money.
