I've spent ages looking for a good replacement laptop and the new MSI Prestige more than meets my requirements.

It's new i7-10710u processor supposedly gives the i7-8750 a run for it's money without any overheating issues the 8750 has and the built in geforce 1650 max-q video card will allow light gaming while on the move.

Looking at the price Amazon also seems to have mispriced it - the 14" Prestige model was £1124 yesterday but today it's in line with Scan's price of £1349 so I suspect the real price of this laptop should be closer to the £1399 Scan are selling this for.

£1165 for a 1650!?

No chance. Can get laptops with 1660Ti's for cheaper than this!

From a price to performance ratio I agree with you but this is supposed to be a lightweight content creators laptop not a gaming laptop

Agreed but the other laptops that have better GPUs than this also have comparable processors and memory. Just seems like a lot of money and overpriced for the small stature of it.

You can get a rtx 2060 laptop for under £1000 which destroy's the gtx 1650 (Double the frames in almost all games).

Wasn't the Gtx 1650 rated worst value for money this year?.
At the end of the day it depends on your use case....super lightweight gaming laptops will come with niche tax otherwise it's thicc and weighs a tonne. I've never managed to find a middle ground until Razer and MSI have released their 13" ultraportable gaming laptops. Happily sacrifice some frames and a 144hz screen for something which isn't going to cripple my back when it's in my bag (except my wallet...). Considering this would not be my main machine. It just would be nice to be able to game on the go if I ever want to with some caveats. I ended up selling my RTX 2070 Blade for the Stealth 1650, never looked back!

Heat added though.

I'm currently using the previous (MX150) Razer Stealth. In my case I wanted a larger screen and this model offers that without the additional half a kilogram a blade 15 adds.

Yes it's not a bargain laptop when you can purchase one that weighs a kg more for £700 but compared to the price it should be, let alone the price of Razer's equivalent model it's a steal.

Have to pay for the R&D of having good cooling in a small stature. I think it is fair. Anyone can make a 3kg brick with the same components?

Personally I'd avoid MSI though, had awful RMA experience with them. D&J Henry, who they use in the UK for RMA are diabolical.

Exactly. This is cheaper than it's being sold elsewhere, so it's a good deal.

The reason this is more expensive than other 1650 laptops is the weight. This is a light laptop. It isn't a Dell G7. It's even lighter than the XPS 15 (which, admittedly, has a better CPU).

Check out the Dell Inspiron 7000 too. 14" screen and only weighs 1KG. No GPU though

Looking at the current benchmarks it's a close run thing and this seemingly doesn't have the heat throttleback issues the XPS can have.

The throttling is mainly in the i9 model, but if you look on YouTube, there's a lot of people who have improved it significantly by underbolting and repasting. Depends on what you need. The 10710u is really efficient.

No thunderbolt 3 for my 2080 ti egpu which granted is a niche use case.

Yep - were this laptop £1400 I would be looking at that or a razer blade. At this price though (even if MSI support is bad) it's not an issue as Amazon's support is still top notch.

The Razer Stealth 13 is probably one of the better options out there, but it is expensive. razer.com/gb-…lth


If you don't need a GPU and just need TB3, the Dell XPS 13 9390 is a good option as it uses the i7-10710u. Although, for some reason Dell are only selling a 8GB variation just now.
It's a good laptop because the cpu is both powerful and efficient, and because of the form factor.

1 to 3 months is an awfully long time to wait though

I didn't in the end as I picked up the Gigabyte Aero 15 Classic 2070 that was in the warehouse for the same money.
