Reviews for the MSI Prestige 15 A12UC
Source: Ultrabook Review
If you're after a lightweight full-size-screen laptop capable of solid everyday performance and good runtimes, plus the ability to handle demanding work/school loads and casual games from time to time, the 2022 generation of the MSI Prestige 15 is an option to consider. I'd especially look at the affordable i5+3050 configurations for that. At the same time, the design does show its age here and there, and the limited thermal performance or the mid-quality IPS screen should be considered as well in your decision.

You know, the latest technology from Intel and NVIDIA has definitely helped the Prestige 15 (A12Ux) in its quest to be one of the best business-productivity laptops on the market. Ultimately, the so-called Alder Lake-P Core i7-1280P is roughly the same as the Core i5-12500H in terms of performance. In addition to that, you get pretty comfortable input devices, and some biometric login options that do their job as intended. This includes an IR face recognition scanner, and a fingerprint reader, placed inside the touchpad area. Unfortunately, this means a small portion of the touchpad is unresponsive. MSI Prestige 15 (A12Ux)’s IPS panel has a Full HD resolution, comfortable viewing angles, and a good contrast ratio. Its backlight doesn’t flicker at any brightness level, which makes it safe in this aspect. Furthermore, the 96% sRGB coverage results in a vibrant image, while our Gaming and Web design profile will help you get the most out of the panel in terms of color accuracy. Of course, we have to talk about some downsides. One of them is the lack of memory expansion.
