Ready to work and travel with you, the MSI Modern 15 A10RB-018FR is your next versatile companion. Its light chassis (1.6 kg) , compact and thin (16 mm) opts for a discreet matt black design and hides unsuspected multimedia capacities under its small profile. This 15-inch ultrabook can first count on a dedicated GeForce MX250 graphics card which opens a chapter in favor of versatility for those who are looking not only for a tool for daily work, but also a mobile machine that allows you to sort your photos , edit some simple videos and play time.
Support for creatives is not as effective as GTX / RTX cards, however, especially since in this case, the low-consumption Quad Core i7 processor can also be a limiting factor. No problem for everyday use, editing via Photoshop, a little video editing and even a little post-production on Lightroom. But beyond that, the processor as well as the graphics card quickly show their limits and the export tasks in particular will require a certain execution time. Storage is entrusted to responsive SSD of good capacity (512 GB) with the support of 16 GB of RAM, a total allowing you to see the coming years serenely, and the whole is put into images by a borderless Full HD IPS anti-reflective immersive screen that opens flat.
Note also that the autonomy deploys almost 9 hours of operation in complete freedom and that the approvals are not lacking: resistant aluminum housing (MIL-STD 810G test), backlit keyboard and advanced Cooler Boost 3 cooling. A reproach to make him? The absence of Thunderbolt 3 and biometric authentication (Windows Hello) for sure.
