This Ultrabook is equipped with a good connection including 1 USB-C, Bluetooth 5.0 and Wi-Fi ac modules to communicate and connect remotely wirelessly, a useful HDMI video output to easily connect it to a TV for example , 1 audio port without forgetting 3 USB 3.0 / .2 (USB 2.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers carried out up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 peripherals are connected to it.
In addition, the keys of the chiclet keyboard can be backlit, which is practical for distinguishing its keys in the event of limited ambient light.
The screen benefits from IPS technology ensuring significant vertical and horizontal viewing angles as well as more faithful than average colorimetry.

Performance, battery life of the MSI Modern 15 A10M-463FR
The MSI Modern 15 A10M-463FR is a compact High Definition laptop designed for everyday mobile use.
Thanks to its SSD storage, its responsiveness is greatly enhanced on a daily basis compared to a hard drive. Because an SSD is much faster than a hard drive but also more robust, less energy-consuming and more robust.
On a daily basis, thanks to the SSD, we benefit from much faster starts / stops than with a simple hard drive, just like application launches.
Here we find a 512 GB SSD, a capacity similar to the standard of hard drives. But if you need more space, you can use an external storage unit. Favoring a USB-C / USB 3.0 device then represents an interesting option to benefit from fast transfers.
The SSD supports the heart of this thin and light computer that delivers good performance in everyday use, such as office automation and surfing the Internet. Because this discreet black Ultrabook is built around a good amount of 8 GB RAM which is very useful in multitasking as well as a low-consumption Comet Lake Core i3-10110U processor.
However, it should be kept in mind that like the AMD Ryzen 3, the Intel Core i3 show their limits under software requiring processor resources.
In any case, the Core i3 Comet Lake integrates within it the Intel UHD 620 graphics part. Modest, it is not designed for heavy graphics work such as games but obviously allows you to watch photos and videos.
As for the battery life of this Ultrabook whose low weight and thinness facilitate transport, bet on about 7 hours of battery operation in light use.
