Reviews for the MSI Prestige 15 A11SB-449

Review – MSI Prestige 15 A11SB: Great value!
Source: NLT English
And finally the price – this laptop retails for RM3,999 and I think that’s actually a good price for this laptop. For all that it has to offer and what it can do, that’s a really good and reasonable price to pay for. Just make sure you get a total of 16GB RAM though.
