MSI Prestige 15 review: A creative laptop at a competitive price


Josh Goldman/CNET

MSI makes a variety of gaming laptops, desktops, monitors and components. Seriously, if you check out everything the company makes, you can get lost in its website exploring the catalog. In among the gaming laptops you’ll find its Prestige 15 series that turns MSI’s PC performance and display knowledge into a thin-and-light laptop made for content creators. The end result is a sleek, discreet laptop that, while maybe not as polished as competing models made for creators from Dell, HP and others, has what you’ll need to get your video, photo and graphics work done on the go. 

Like

  • Beautiful calibrated display
  • High performance in a slim, light body
  • Mini USB-C dock and protective sleeve included

Don’t Like

  • Fit and finish could be better considering the $1,799 price

Between the design, components and display, the Prestige 15 isn’t cheap at $1,799. It’s available in the UK and Australia with 16GB of memory (half of what’s in my review sample) for £1,185 and AU$3,099, respectively. That’s a reasonable price, but if you don’t need the color-accurate display but still want something thin and light with a little extra graphics performance, there are more affordable options.
