Prestige 15 A10SC laptop review
Source: Good Gear Guide English Archive.org version
The handling and performance of previous portable powerhouses from MSI has been impressive, but the Prestige 15 looks suave and sophisticated, as well. Whether you are an executive, marketer, creative or media professional – or perhaps you just want to secretly play games in your downtime without raising any suspicions – the Prestige is a good choice for demanding and sophisticated users.

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.
75% MSI Prestige 15 review: A slim and light 15-inch notebook that performs
Source: Hardware Zone English
Still, if portability and performance are important to you, the Prestige 15 is worth a close and hard look. Few other 15-inch notebooks are as slim and light. LG’s gram 15 is lighter but it relies on integrated graphics so its performance isn’t competitive at all. And while the ZenBook 15 might have identical specs, it’s thicker and heavier than the Prestige 15. The XPS 15 and Aero 15 might be more powerful but are heavier still. The two weigh about 400g or 25% more. If you need to carry around your notebook all day, every gram counts. It also helps that at S$2,649, the Prestige 15 (even with the optional 4K display) is much cheaper than the XPS 15 and Aero 15, though it's dearer than a similarly-spec'ed ZenBook 15 (S$2,498).

MSI Prestige 15 review – the go-to device for content creators
Source: Laptop Media English
So this laptop would be a great competitor to something like the ZenBook 15 UX534, and even the XPS 15 in some areas. Especially, thanks to the fact that you have a reasonably powerful notebook, which can be both fast and quiet (not at the same time), and a battery lasting for more than 11 hours of Web browsing.

The MSI Prestige 15 should be seen as an entry-level notebook for creative pros with more demanding needs like coders, game developers, and video editors. I won’t say this notebook will satisfy serious pro-level users but will definitely appeal to first-time buyers. While the Prestige 15 is a sleek-looking laptop for creative professionals, the competition in this space is just getting started.

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.

80% MSI Prestige 15 review: A great value business workhorse
Source: It Pro English
Anyone who uses a laptop for work is likely to prioritise battery life and keyboard quality and on both counts the Prestige 15 delivers in spades. It is good value considering the specification; the 40W TGP limit on the GPU is unlikely to cause any problems unless you really want to do some surreptitious gaming on the company hardware. MSI deserves plaudits for equipping its Prestige-line machines with a comprehensive selection of ports but we would have liked to see at least 16GB of RAM at the entry level and an improved quality webcam to better suit this new era of hybrid working. However, the MSI Prestige 15 is a great-value business workhorse.

85% MSI Prestige 15 review (2022 A12U model- i7-1280P, RTX 3050)
Source: Ultrabook Review English
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.

MSI Prestige 15 (A12Ux) review
Source: Laptop Media English
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.

MSI: Micro-Star International (MSI), is a Taiwan based computer hardware manufacturer since 1986 best known for desktop computer motherboards. MSI also designs and manufactures graphics cards, barebone PCs, notebook computers, networking products, servers, multimedia, consumer electronics, and storage devices. MSI, as most Taiwanese computer manufacturers, sells products on OEM/ODM basis. It also sells products worldwide based on its own brand name "MSI". The market share of laptops with the MSI brand is rather low.

MSI is not present in the smartphone market. As a laptop manufacturer, MSI has a medium market share and is not among the Top 10 global manufacturers. The ratings of MSI laptops are above average in the tests (as of 2016).


With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Max-Q: Mid range dedicated graphics card for thin and light laptops based on the GTX 1650 but with reduced clock speeds and power consumption. Uses the Turing architecture (TU117 chip in 12nm FFN) but without Raytracing or Tensor cores.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Mobile: Mid range dedicated graphics card for laptops based on the desktop GTX 1650 and therefore the Turing architecture (TU117 chip in 12nm FFN) without raytracing and Tensor cores. Available with 896 and 1024 shaders.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Ti Max-Q: Mid range dedicated graphics card for laptops that uses a Turing TU117 chip without raytracing and Tensor cores. Runs at reduced clock speeds compared to a laptop GTX 1650 Ti to achieve a much lower power consumption (35 versus 50 - 80 Watt).

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 Ti Laptop GPU: Mid-range gaming laptop graphics card based on the Ampere GA107 chip.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 Laptop GPU: Mid-range gaming laptop graphics card based on the Ampere GA107 chip. Offers 2048 shaders and is offered in different TGP (power consumption) variants from 35 to 80 Watt with different clock speeds and therefore performance.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

Intel UHD Graphics 620: Integrated GPU (GT2, 24 EUs) found on some Kaby-Lake-Refresh CPU models (15 W ULV series). Technically identical to the previous Kaby-Lake GPU called HD Graphics 620.

NVIDIA GeForce MX450: Gimped GeForce GTX 1650 (Turing TU117) based entry level GPU with GDDR5 or GDDR6 graphics memory. Available in 4 different variants, where the LP = low power version with 12 Watt TGP is the slowest.
