Reviews for the MSI Prestige 16 B1MG-001US

88.1% MSI Prestige 16 B1MG laptop review: From Core i7 Xe to Core Ultra 7 Arc | Notebookcheck
We went out and bought our own 1st gen Core Ultra laptop from a retail store. Is a brick-and-mortar unit just as good as all the Core Ultra 7 press units designed for reviewers? For $1400, it better be.

80% MSI Prestige 16 AI Evo Review

The Prestige 16 AI Evo isn't an roaring-performance workstation or gaming rig, and a more supple keyboard and second USB-A port would be nice. But those are truly all the nits we can pick. It seems like only yesterday that a desktop replacement notebook with a screen this splendid would set you back $3,000 and be lucky to last six hours on battery power, but the MSI costs half that and runs three times as long. It earns an Editors' Choice award as a first-class value among modern desktop replacements.

80% MSI Prestige 16 review: Light on your back and wallet
Source: PC World English
The MSI Prestige 16 AI EVO B1MG is an excellent pick for anyone looking to buy a powerful 16-inch laptop with good battery life and a slim design. It also has a great keyboard, good touchpad, gorgeous display, and comes with plenty of RAM and storage. MSI’s design is dull and lacks a specific feature or flourish to help it stand out, but it nails the basics. MSI’s pricing is competitive, as well. Though certainly not cheap at $1,650, the Prestige is a bit less expensive than similarly equipped competitors like the LG Gram 16 and 17 or Samsung Galaxy Book3 Pro. Despite that, the MSI is not at a disadvantage when compared against those laptops, which makes it a clear choice for budget-conscious buyers.

90% MSI Prestige 16 AI Evo review: A fruit-slaying badass laptop
Source: Laptop Mag English
The MSI Prestige 16 AI Evo is meant to be a business-focused laptop, but it ends up being the MacBook challenger PC laptop enthusiasts have longed for. Not only can it meet and, in many cases, surpass the M2-powered MacBooks, but it is also surpassing the baseline M3 MacBooks, which is a giant leap forward for Intel-powered laptops. This isn’t hyperbole; this is what the numbers show. When you add a stunning, immersive 16-inch 4K OLED display, 32GB of RAM, and 1TB of SSD storage for $1,399, the Prestige will save you a ton of money versus a similar-spec MacBook Air M2, which maxes out at 24GB of RAM and will cost you $2,099 with a 1TB SSD. From document pushing to image and video editing, the MSI Prestige has you covered. With 13-plus hours of battery life, you can now enjoy all-day battery life and performance while untethered from a wall outlet.

MSI Prestige 16 AI EVO hands-on: This AI laptop could be a game-changer
Source: Tom's Guide English
The MSI Prestige 16 AI EVO and upcoming MSI Prestige 16 AI Studio seem intriguing thanks to their promised on-device AI capabilities. But even if the AI functionality ends up being superfluous, we'll still get fetching-looking laptops with enough power for everyday tasks, gaming and video editing. Either way, I'm eager to review MSI's Prestige 16 series of laptops to see what they can do.

16.00":

15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.

The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


MSI: Micro-Star International (MSI) was founded in 1986 in Taiwan. MSI is especially known as a manufacturer of motherboards and graphics cards for PCs, but also offers computer accessories, complete systems, motherboards, graphics cards, laptops, desktop PCs, monitors and other components. However, the Microstar brand name in Germany belongs to the Medion company. MSI is known for its gaming products and has developed a wide range of gaming laptops and desktop PCs. The company is also active in workstations, servers and industrial automation. MSI has offices in North America, Europe, Asia and Australia.


85.14%: This is an above-average rating. Nevertheless, it should not be forgotten that about one fifth of all tested models receive a better rating.
