Reviews for the MSI Prestige PS42 8RB-073

MSI PS42 8RB Review
Source: Yugatech English
With the amount of time I had with the MSI Prestige PS42 8RB, I do believe that it’s a step in the right direction for MSI to target more business-focused and oriented consumers. My problem is, it isn’t perfect, and sure nothing’s perfect but it’s the little things, like the not so ideal build quality, and the lows lacking in the speaker department. The PS42 is priced at PHP 76,995, which is quite competitive but on the more pricey end of the spectrum. And well I think it was a really good try from MSI. But I don’t exactly believe that I, myself would buy this laptop just yet. Especially when there are cheaper, but still sleek business-focused options from the competitors.

MSI's Prestige laptop is more MacBook than gaming beast
Source: CNet English
MSI isn't the first gaming company to make this move, as Razer in 2016 launched the Blade Stealth. That was also a slim and sleek Windows laptop, and is a range that continues to cough up the goods. We'll have a more conclusive take on the promising Prestige in the third quarter of the year, which is when MSI says it'll hit store shelves. No word was given on pricing.
