Chassis, connectors, screen of the MSI Modern 15 A11M-052XFR

It sports a sober and elegant design with its Carbon Gray aluminum design which is robust with its compliance with the American military resistance standard MIL-STD-810G.

This computer is supplied without Windows and to fully exploit its capabilities, it is necessary to install a complete system, such as a Linux distribution (the vast majority are free) or… Windows.

The connectivity integrated into this thin and light versatile Ultrabook is good, consisting of 1 USB 4 Type-C Thunderbolt 4, an HDMI video output useful for easy connection to a TV for example, Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth modules 5.0 for wireless remote connections and communications, an audio port not to mention 3 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB devices 3.0 are plugged into it.
Too bad, however, not to find more recent and efficient Wi-Fi ax.

A backlighting system is fitted to the chiclet keyboard, which is useful for distinguishing its keys when the ambient light is limited.

The screen reproduces colors more faithfully than average while ensuring comfortable vertical and horizontal viewing angles thanks to its 100% sRGB and IPS characteristics. It also lends itself very well to the display of High Definition content such as videos due to its precise Full HD definition and its 16: 9 format. As it is anti-reflective, the screen is also more readable in a bright environment (eg outdoors) than a shiny panel.

Performance, battery life of the MSI Modern 15 A11M-052XFR

The MSI Modern 15 A11M-052XFR is a stylish compact High Definition laptop designed for everyday versatile use on the go.

Easy to carry thanks to its thinness, its compactness and its contained weight, this discreet Ultrabook can hold approximately 8 hours of operation on battery in light use in terms of battery life.

To do this, it relies on energy-efficient components such as its low-power Intel Quad Core i5-1135G7 Tiger Lake processor here associated with 8 GB of RAM to provide good overall performance able to satisfy many users.

Thanks to the Intel Iris Xe graphics part (which we tested) which proves to be significantly more efficient than the traditional Intel UHD 620, we can watch photos and videos but also run games that do not require too much graphics resources.

However, it is better to turn to a PC with a non-low-power processor and / or an adequate dedicated graphics card if you are planning to carry out work that consumes CPU and / or graphics resources in a regular.

In any case, the on-board SSD storage clearly reinforces daily responsiveness and fluidity compared to a simple hard drive.

It must be said that an SSD is much faster but also more resistant to shocks, less energy and silent.

Concretely thanks to the SSD, we obtain much faster software launches for example as well as processing and starts / stops, or even a faster arrival on the cards of online games.

Here we find a 512 GB SSD, a capacity in phase with the standard of hard disks.
What if we need more space? An M.2 slot is free to add a second SSD.
You can also obviously use an external storage unit such as a USB 3.0 / Thunderbolt / USB-C device to benefit from fast transfers.
