MSI Prestige PS42 Quick Review

MSI took a huge step forward when they introduced their newest laptop in Prestige PS42 8RB, their move in expanding their market to mainstream laptops and ultrabooks for professionals is a bit of a surprise since they were doing so well in the gaming department. Taking on the likes of Macbook Pro, Dell XPS and ASUS Zenbook is a bit of a challenge for them but after using the unit that was lent to us, I personally think MSI is ready to throw their name in the mix. Read on below for our quick review.

The MSI Prestige PS42s design may not be your average joe as they did a bit of a mix with their current gaming laptops. With the entire chassis made of brushed, aluminum metal, you still get to feel the gaming vibe due to its rugged texture when you touch the surface of the lid.

Upon opening lifting the screen youll see its power button placed at the center which reminds you of the old powerbooks, the illuminated chiclet keyboard however is well placed and the travel distance is good enough for me to adjust immediately to it. MSI did an outstanding job on knowing whats best for portable laptops in having the keys come in same sizes, one good example is its fully-sized arrow keys!

For a more secure logins, there is a fingerprint reader on the top left side of the touchpad which is very convenient and a better to choice compared to facial recognition in terms of accuracy and security.

The required ports are all present with 2x USB 3.0 ports, 1x USB Type-C with Thunderbolt 3 connection, 1x memory card reader, 1x HDMI port and a 3.5mm audio jack. Im not a fan of the USB port placements on the right because most users are right-handed and it seems to be a bit awkward of seeing all your flash drives and other USB devices attached at the same side.

Under the hood is a 4-core/ 8-threads Intel Core i7-8550U processor and NVIDIA MX150 with 2GB of GDDR5 VRAM, MSI managed to put in a discrete graphics card on an ultrabook which enables it to play some games which mostly are non triple A games in 1080p with 60FPS on average.

It also comes with 512GB of PCie SSD and 8GB of DDR4 2400Mhz, booting up the device takes less than 30 seconds, apps loading time takes less than 2 seconds, making it and ideal work device for young professionals and students as well.

Overall, the introduction of their newest ultrabook is a good start of MSI. With all the right features and performance for everyday use, the Prestige PS42 can clearly compete against the latest ultrabooks available in the market today.
