Too bad, however, to note the absence of the more recent and efficient Wi-Fi ax.
In any case, many people will appreciate being able to backlight the keys of the chiclet keyboard, a very practical feature to better distinguish them in the event of reduced ambient light.
The screen will be of interest to fans of videos and more generally High Definition content thanks to its 16: 9 format and precise Full HD definition.

Performance, battery life of the MSI Modern 14 B10MW-462FR
The MSI Modern 14 B10MW-462FR is a compact High Definition laptop designed for everyday mobile use.
Thanks to its compactness, finesse and lightness, this laptop is easy to carry. In addition side battery life, it can hold about 8 hours on battery in light use which will interest the nomads.
It must be said that it relies on energy-efficient components such as its low-power Quad Core i7-10510U Comet Lake processor, here coupled with a good amount of 16 GB RAM above average and very appreciable in multitasking.
The general performance delivered by this duo is able to satisfy many users. However, if it is a question of often carrying out work requiring processor resources, it is better to opt for a PC based on a non-low consumption processor.
Ditto if the goal is to play, we will opt for a computer with an appropriate dedicated graphics card.
Here, there is no dedicated graphics card on board. All graphics are handled by the modest Intel UHD 620 solution integrated into the Quad Core i7. With the Intel UHD 620, you can watch photos and videos.
In terms of storage, there is an SSD whose capacity of 512 GB is similar to the standard of hard drives. But compared to the latter, remember that an SSD is silent but also less energy, more robust and much faster.
In practice, thanks to the SSD, we benefit for example from much faster starts / stops, processing and software launches.
And in case one needs additional space, one can rely on an external storage unit like a USB-C device for fast transfers.
