MSI Prestige 15: Perfectly tuned for creative work
In our review, the Creator notebook demonstrates that impressive performance and efficiency can work together. The CPU and GPU as well as the 4K display provide the necessary power for demanding image and video editing without having to exhaust their maximum potential.

MSI has deliberately limited the power consumption of the processor and graphics chip. This way, the Prestige 15 stays comparatively cool during more demanding tasks and never emits any unpleasantly loud fan noise.
Conversely, this prevents the hardware from having a high place in the rankings. But this matters little for multimedia laptop work. Video editing or complex image processing can be carried out quickly. Only newer games reveal the limits of the components in favor of efficiency.
Otherwise the notebook is well-tuned for media processing and creative activities. Three video outputs, fast USB ports and practicable battery runtimes round off a solid laptop overall.
Screen with a strong impression
In addition, the display comes across more as a professional desktop monitor than a 15.6-inch laptop panel. The 4K resolution as well as the 96 percent Adobe RGB coverage we measured are ideal for viewing, editing and optimizing digital photos.
Unfortunately, this not only results in positive effects. Unnecessary weaknesses also appear in other areas and among features that are usually standard.
Nevertheless, the overall concept works perfectly for image and video editing, not least because MSI offers a few alternatives in terms of hardware configuration.
I've been using computers since 1989 and an Intel 8086. I also remember the Internet before college and university networks were supplanted by corporate and social media. The fascination for the technical leaps and social effects never let me go. In particular, I am most interested in the classic PC - and hardly less so in the laptop, in which the components have to come to terms with little space and power. So it seems only logical that I have been writing technical guides and product presentations since 2015. My physics studies provide the necessary basic knowledge and understanding of contexts.

Growing up in regional Australia, I first became acquainted with computers in my early teens after a broken leg from a football (soccer) match temporarily condemned me to a predominately indoor lifestyle. Soon afterwards I was building my own systems. Now I live in Germany, having moved here in 2014, where I study philosophy and anthropology. I am particularly fascinated by how computer technology has fundamentally and dramatically reshaped human culture, and how it continues to do so.
