The MSI Prestige 14 Evo is a 14-inch laptop powered by the latest Intel Core i7-1185G7 processor. It is the first device we've tested with integrated graphics that can play top-tier FPS at reasonable framerates. Overall, MSI has crafted a respectable design, but there is not the wow factor of some other laptops in the same price range.

Reviewers from Digitaltrends have found the following[***]:
MSI has worked closely with Intel on its 11th-gen Tiger Lake processors. The Prestige 14 Evo is thin and light for a 14-inch laptop at 0.63 inches and 2.85 pounds. It's not the thinnest nor the lightest that you can get in this class of machine.

MSI's Prestige 14 Evo is stuffed with a beefy 11th-Gen Intel Core i7 processor. It offers an impressive battery runtime of nearly 11 hours. Content creators will also appreciate the Prestige14 Evo's useful preinstalled software. It has some flaws, including an awfully dim display and a slithery touchpad.

MSI Prestige 14 Evo has a quad-core Intel Core i7-1185G7 processor. The 14-incher also has a USB 2.0 Type-A port, a microSD slot, and a 3.5 mm audio jack. Buyers can expect a very tidy layout inside the case: The M.2 slot is located right next to the large battery.

Sentiment Score[*] 79%
Reviewers from Tomshardware have found the following[***]:
The MSI Prestige 14 Evo keeps the same basic look as previous releases, but lacks the bright pink option from the Ice Lake model we reviewed earlier this year. The Prestige and the Razer Book once again lead scores in graphics testing, with all machines using Intel Iris Xe internal graphics. The keyboard makes a strong first impression thanks to some snazzy decoration and the hinge lifting it five degrees off the desk.

Pros[**]
  • Sleek, lightweight design
  • Strong performance for the price
  • Good battery life
Cons[**]
  • Mediocre speakers
  • Display is dim
