If you’re familiar with laptops, you’re familiar with MSI. The gaming laptops maker has a wide range of laptops. And did you know they make professional laptops too? I mean, those meant for work and editing stuff, rather than just gaming. Many did not, of course. Anyway, they are launching two new laptops from their MSI Prestige PS42 Modern lineup in Nepal, along with another gaming laptop.
Their Prestige lineup is meant primarily for people on the go. And this lineup comprises of slim and elegant devices – not your typical heavy gaming rigs. Ocean Computers, the authorized distributors of MSI products in Nepal have launched two Prestige laptops – PS42 Modern 8RA and Prestige PS42 Modern 8MO.
MSI Prestige PS42 Modern 8RA Overview
The PS42 Modern 8RA has a slim and lightweight chassis in an all silver color that weighs about 1.19 kg. It features a 14-inch Full-HD IPS LCD panel with very narrow bezels. There’s a Full-sized keyboard for better work as well. The laptop runs on 8th-gen Intel Whiskey Lake i7-8565U processor with a boost clock up to 4.6 GHz.
Combined with its 16 GB DDR4 RAM, your daily workflow should get on without a hitch. Plus, you also get MX250 graphics…which might be an entry level card but works for light gaming and editing stuff. And that’s what it is meant for anyway. For storage, you get a 512 GB NVMe SSD, so there’s no questioning its performance either. It also packs a 50 Watt-hour battery, and with its configuration, it should last up to 10 hours.
You get 2 USB-Cs, two USB-As, an SD card slot, and an HDMI port for I / O interfaces. This laptop is priced at Rs.149,000.
MSI Prestige PS42 Modern 8MO Overview
Another variant of the PS42 Modern 8RA is the 8MO. There are only a few differences between these two models. The primary one being the absence of a dedicated graphics card. Also, you only get the i5 variant, here in Nepal even though you can get an i7 version overseas.
The PS42 Modern 8MO packs a 14-inch Full-HD display as well. It also has a full sized keyboard and weighs about 1.18 kg. It runs on 8th-gen WhiskeyLake i5-8265U processor with a boost clock up to 3.9 GHz. There’s about 8 GB RAM in it, and the same 512 GB NVMe SSD. It also has the same kind of battery and the same number of I / O ports. The price is Rs.115,000.
