Consider the following when choosing between the MSI Prestige 14 and the MSI Prestige 15: The Prestige 14 is usually less expensive and more portable, making it a good option if budget and ease of carrying are priorities. However, the Prestige 15 comes with a dedicated graphics card (Nvidia GTX 1650 Max-Q) which is better for tasks like video editing, 3D rendering, or gaming. It also has a larger screen and a bigger battery, which could lead to longer battery life but makes it heavier and less portable. If you engage in performance-intensive work and prefer a bigger display, the Prestige 15 may be the better option, despite its higher price and weight. Give Feedback

Tech Radar

Collin Probst | September 2022
"The MSI Prestige 14” is excellent for productivity and business use cases, but it is not ideal for creators or visual content editors. The Prestige was able to power through days of email, spreadsheets, and text documents without breaking a sweat and was a joy to use. The additional ports were a breath of fresh air, as most laptops seem to be moving towards just Thunderbolt ports. The security options made signing in effortless, with two quick, more secure, and faster options than even the most complex alphanumeric passcode."

Mario Petzold | December 2022
"The MSI Prestige 15 offers a dazzling 4K image quality, and solid performance. The MSI Prestige 15 appears to consistently implement the guiding principle of throttling the solid and efficient hardware to such an extent that content creation succeeds perfectly. Performance-hungry tasks, on the other hand, are slowed down a little by the reduced power consumption. Conversely, this means that the case remains relatively cool and the dual fan subdued. The battery life also benefits somewhat. So the losses aren't really dramatic because full performance is still available for short bursts."
