Chassis, connections, screen of the MSI Prestige 13 AI Evo A1MG-009FR

Certified to the military robustness standard MIL-STD-810H, this portable computer with a dark Stellar Gray design, compact, thin and light in magnesium-aluminum alloy has a discreet appearance.

This versatile multimedia laptop has good connectivity made up of Wi-Fi 7 be wireless modules (more recent and efficient than Wi-Fi 6 ax)and Bluetooth 5.4 to communicate and connect remotely, a practical HDMI video output to easily connect it to a TV or a monitor for example, an audio port, a microSD card reader but also 2 USB- C Thunderbolt 4 but also 1 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 when a USB 3.0 device is connected.

Fans of biometric authentication will be delighted to find here a 2-factor solution associated with a TPM 2.0 security chip and usable via Windows Hello technology: a fingerprint reader and an Infrared webcam allowing facial recognition.

Fortunately, those most concerned about their privacy can deactivate the webcam when they are not using it using a lock button.
It should be noted that the webcam is equipped with Tobii Aware technology which identifies and informs the user when someone is looking at your screen behind you.

When ambient light is limited, you can activate the backlighting of the chiclet keyboard to better distinguish its keys.

The screen will delight fans of High Definition content thanks to its 2.8K definition superior to Full HD, associated with a 16:10 format displaying more information in height than the 16:9 standard.
But also those looking for a High Fidelity panel. It adopts DCI-P3 OLED specifications ensuring color accuracy well above average with great black depth, very low latency as well as significant vertical and horizontal viewing angles.
Due to its OLED technology, the screen is glossy treated which revives the colors but implies sensitivity to reflections in a bright environment (eg outdoors).

Performance, autonomy of the MSI Prestige 13 AI Evo A1MG-009FR

The MSI Prestige 13 AI Evo A1MG-009FR may be of interest to those looking for a versatile multimedia High Definition High Fidelity laptop that is very easy to transport for versatile multimedia use on the go.

Its autonomy is in fact around 10 hours on battery in light use which is particularly appreciable, especially for those wishing to equip themselves with a Student laptop. Because it is also very easy to transport thanks to its compactness, its finesse and its weight under the kilo bar.

To offer such autonomy, this Ultrabook relies on energy-efficient components.
This is the case of its 1 TB SSD storage, a significant capacity capable of housing multiple software and files including personal productions.
In addition, the SSD provides much better fluidity and responsiveness on a daily basis than a hard drive.

Because an SSD is much faster than a hard drive while being quiet, less energy-consuming and more resistant to shock.
Concretely, thanks to the SSD we obtain much faster starts/stops, multimedia processing and application launches, or even faster arrival on online game cards.

Despite the absence of a dedicated graphics card, we can in fact watch photos and HD videos but also play light to modest games thanks to the Intel Arc graphics module housed in the processor… subject to concessions.
Because the 2.8K definition of the screen requires more graphics calculations than Full HD, which results in a lower number of fps.
To obtain good playability we will therefore lower the resolution.

This is the Intel Core Ultra 5 125H processor with 16 hybrid cores and architecture-based AI services. Meteor Lake which houses the Intel Arc within it. It is coupled with 16 GB of RAM to provide good general performance which will satisfy many users.

The Core Ultra 5 125H deploys its full potential in software using multi-cores and RAM, such as photo editing or video editing.
However, for heavy multimedia work, we would prefer a PC based on a processor with a higher number of efficient cores.

MSI Prestige 13 AI Evo A1MG-009FR

In any case, the storage will appeal to demanding users since it is entrusted to a 1000 GB SSD which easily competes in terms of capacity with hard drives while being more resistant to shocks, more energy efficient, silent and much more swift.

On a daily basis, the SSD, which can accommodate multiple software and files, guarantees much better fluidity and responsiveness than a hard drive.
This results in particular in faster starts/stops, multimedia processing and software launches but also, for example, in faster arrival on online game cards.

Finally, in the event of heavy loads (e.g. treatments) expect this versatile multimedia High Definition High Fidelity multimedia Ultrabook, which is very easy to transport, to heat up and make itself heard.
If necessary, it can be associated with a ventilated support to contain its temperatures (remember to check the dimensions carefully!).
