Product Overview

MSI Prestige 14 A11S is a mid-range business laptop powered by 11th-gen Intel Core processors and discrete NVIDIA GTX graphics. Compared to the low-powered Prestige 14 Evo, the Prestige 14 is available with full-powered IPS displays in either FHD or 4K UHD. Still, the Prestige 14 remains compact, lightweight, and durable.
Available in three stylish colors, the Prestige 14 benefits from an ergonomic hinge that raises the keyboard 5 degrees when the lid is open.
Like all premium MSI laptops launched in 2020, the Prestige series comes with WiFi 6 and Bluetooth 5.1 wireless connectivity. They also boast Thunderbolt 4 support as well as PCIe Gen4 SSD.
MSI also introduced a 15.6-inch model in the Prestige lineup, the Prestige 15.

The MSI Prestige 14 hits two key criteria for any successful ultraportable: it's incredibly compact, and it runs forever. The all-metal chassis looks sleek, and despite its compact size, the keyboard is quite comfortable. The drawback, however, is the frequent fan noise.

  • Compact, lightweight design
  • Powerful Intel processor
  • Long battery life

MSI's Prestige 14 is a fine general-use laptop. It does well with everyday browsing, streaming and gaming. The screen certainly looks good, but I'd expect better brightness and improved color accuracy. If you're looking for an ultraportable device with a finish that turns heads, it's a decent option.
