MSI Prestige14 EVO - A11M-220

Featured! - 9%

Ultra Slim Frame, Ultra Slim Price?

Well, not quite, but still a great deal if you’re looking for a thin, light weight laptop that can still pack a punch. Although small, it’s packed with a 11th gen i7-1185G7, Intel Iris Xe, 16GB of RAM, and a 512GB NVMe SSD. Unique to Best Buy, it does have a slightly different model with a 1TB SSD instead for almost the exact same price. Technically it’s the Prestige 14 EVO A11M-012 instead of the Prestige 14 EVO A11M-220 with the expanded hard drive being the only difference.  Either one will put in the work to be a great everyday laptop having a battery rated to last 12 hours (so expect around 7-9 hours) and being very light weight at 2.84lbs (1.29kg).

 

Who this laptop is for

Without amazing specs that can compete with gaming rigs or the low usability of chrome books, this laptop is pretty much perfect for anyone who doesn’t need to do intense processing or gaming. Being light weight, small, fast, and an overall good battery life is really going to expand who this laptop is for. I’d like to say it competes with the macbook air, the the build quality and design aren’t quite there (personally the screen opening that pushes down on the surface to raise up the keyboard is a bit odd). In terms of speed it’ll run up anything you need with fast RAM and SSD access, even if you wanted to do some light gaming at medium settings with relatively low framerates.

 

Base Spec Breakdown breakdown:

 

  • Intel Iris Xe (integrated GPU)
  • Intel i7 1185G7 1.2Ghz (4.8Ghz boost)
  • 14.0″ 1920×1080 60Hz display
  • 16GB LPDDR4X RAM
  • 512GB NVMe SSD

 

 

Downside?

For an ultra slim laptop, you don’t expect to hear the fan much if at all. But if you’re doing some semi heavy processing you’ll clearly hear the fans running. It’s not the end of the world, just remember this laptop is going to be constantly trying to maximize power consumption. From the processor to the ram, everything is optimized for maximum battery life. This isn’t a bad thing per say, but the jumping back and forth from “low power life” to “gotta go fast!” is going to be noticeable if you’re doing anything beyond basic web surfing.

 

 

Conclusion

Being an ultra light, everything is integrated into the motherboard so if you’re thinking you may want to upgrade in the future, there isn’t going to be much room to do so. It’s quite an aesthetically pleasing laptop, and having a USB 2.0 is nice for those who haven’t completely swapped over to USB C. The backlit keyboard is nice as well! It is a 14.0″ laptop so it’s going to be a bit compact. If you’re used to a 15.6″ with the number pad on the right side, it might not even feel much different. Overall this is a great laptop for those looking to have something for school or work that just needs to get the job done and not feel like you’re lugging around a desktop.
