Expert review

Gaming brand MSI isn’t the brand you’d necessarily think of when it comes to thin and light laptops, but that’s exactly what the company’s Prestige range is designed to change. The 14-inch PS42 laptop weighs just 1.2kg and packs in powerful components that should make it a dab hand at multimedia tasks and even gaming. Our full lab test reveals how this model performs.

What's included:
  • Pros and cons
  • What is it?
  • What’s it like to use?
  • What are the screen and sound like?
  • How long does the battery last?
  • Should I buy it?
