First Impressions

Right off the bat, the MSI Prestige looks very impressive, with the matte finish, squared design, and flattened edges giving it an impressive look. There’s a unique design in the back vent area and a sleek MSI logo on the top lid, but also a 5-degree bump-up created when opening the cover of this laptop (see photo below) which allows for a better ergonomic typing angle and improved airflow under the computer to help keep things cool.

Design and Build Quality

The design of the MSI Prestige is minimal and modern, sporting sharp edges and thin bezels. On the left-hand side are two Thunderbolt 4 ports, a light indicator for power, and one for low battery. On the right-hand side are a USB 3.2 Gen1 Type-A port, a MicroSD card reader, and an Audio Combo Jack (headphone and microphone in one). Built into the top left of the trackpad is a fingerprint scanner for unlocking the laptop if the user opts out of the face unlock.

MSI chose three minimalist and streamlined color options. Two for the 14” (carbon gray and bluestone), two for the 15” (carbon gray and urban silver), with the carbon gray color available for both sizes.
