Deal | This MSI Evo laptop with 11th gen Intel Core i5 and Thunderbolt 4 is only $699 USD right now
Amazon is currently offering the MSI Prestige 14 Evo for $400 USD off the original launch price of $1099. The Prestige 14 Evo is an upper midrange MSI laptop designed to tackle prosumer models like the Dell XPS 13, Lenovo ThinkBook 14, or the Asus ZenBook series.
The Amazon deal is notable for its high-end specifications relative to the midrange sale price. Users are getting an 11th gen Core i5-1135G7 CPU with integrated Iris Xe graphics, 16 GB of RAM, 512 GB NVMe SSD, and even Thunderbolt 4 connectivity for attaching external GPUs or multiple 4K monitors. It's a versatile and lightweight 14-inch laptop that's a lot faster than it looks.
Drawbacks to the configuration are aplenty. Chassis quality, for example, is not as rigid as the aforementioned Dell or Asus systems while auxiliary features like the integrated webcam and speakers are of poor quality. We also experienced an ever-present coil whine on our unit which can be aggravating to users with more sensitive ears.
