The new MSI Prestige 13 Evo is a thin and light business-class laptop that measures less than 0.7 inches thick and weighs less than 2.2 pounds. But with support for up to a 28-watt, 14-core, 20-thread Intel Core i7-1370P processor, the notebook should deliver plenty of performance.
It also has two Thunderbolt 4 ports, up to 32GB of LPDDR5 memory, and up to 2TB of PCIe Gen 4 storage.
The notebook has a backlit keyboard with a fingerprint sensor integrated with the power button, a full HD webcam with a privacy shutter, support for WiFi 6E and Bluetooth 5.3, and a 75 Wh battery.
The Prestige 13 Evo partially owes its lightweight design to a magnesium-aluminum alloy chassis, but the company says the notebook doesn’t sacrifice durability, meeting MIL-STD-810G testing standards.
Security features include an IR camera for face recognition and a fingerprint reader.
MSI says the laptop will sell for $1200 and up when it hits the streets this year.
