MSI is a company known for its high-end gaming laptops and PC components, making it into the thin-and-light segment, and more recently, laptops. MSI Modern 15 A11. Luckily, I have had the chance to experience it for 2 weeks and this is all I feel about it.
Design and connectivity ports
Let’s talk about design first. MSI Modern 15 A11 The design is not too picky with a sturdy aluminum frame weighing 1.6kg. For a 15 inch laptop, MSI Modern 15 A11 Will take up modest space in your backpack. At the same time, the 1.6kg weight is not too heavy every time you carry it with you.
Overall, MSI Modern 15 A11 Well done. The first is the sophisticated design, without any fashion accents, but still exudes elegance. On the display cover is the MSI brand logo.
I also want to take a minute to talk about this special highlight MSI Modern 15 A11 is it equipped with MIL-STD 810G. This is the military standard set forth for technological equipment used by US soldiers. It is a standard to evaluate the durability and resistance of the device to impacts, environmental impacts.
For ports on a computer, MSI Modern 15 A11 has two Type-A USB3.2 Gen 2 ports, one Type-A USB3.2 Gen 1 port, microSD card reader, full-size HDMI slot can output to 4K monitors, a certified headphone jack receive high resolution and most importantly the Thunderbolt 4 connector that supports USB Power Delivery. Summary, MSI Modern 15 A11 looks like a premium product, high quality and I have 3 basic reviews about MSI Modern 15 A11 as follows:
- Good finish with matte matte finish that prevents fingerprints and stains when used.
- The articulating display allows you to rotate the screen up to 180 degrees. Unfortunately, the hinge doesn’t provide the right amount of friction, and I found the dashboard tilted whenever I picked up the camera.
- For a computer geared toward creative users, an SD card reader is essential.
Visibility and sound
MSI Modern 15 A11 Equipped with a 15.6-inch Full HD IPS panel. The khogno is completely colored the screen but with an NTSC rating of 72%, it’s enough to meet the needs of your creative work. Furthermore, the panel also comes with a matte finish, which ensures a pleasant viewing angle no matter which direction you tilt the screen.
I’d also like to add that unlike most laptops with a dim display, the panel on the Modern 15 has satisfactory brightness (300 nits), so you won’t find any issues either. when using the screen in a well-lit environment. Furthermore, the company has also integrated the MSI True color app with the laptop allowing you to tune and calibrate your colors as you like.
The edges around the machine are quite glossy. As I just said, the hinge mechanism of the machine is not good, so you can feel the screen wobble a bit when typing.
As for audio, the Modern 15 has a pair of sound-down speakers for clear, loud sound while watching movies on the go. That said, the output lacks depth and can sometimes be a bit jarring. Thankfully, MSI offers a certified high-resolution headphone jack with this device that will definitely serve audiophiles well.
Keyboard and touchpad
Is a person Using Microsoft Word and Google Docs regularly to write articles, the laptop’s keyboard is of primary importance to me. MSI Modern 15 A11 for a pretty good typing experience with the keyboard is widely arranged, so I do not feel tired when typing. What’s more, the keys didn’t feel loose or wobbly. The key travel is satisfactory 1.5mm and also backlit, allowing you to type comfortably when you use it at night without power in the room.
The touchpad works fine for the most part as well, although initially, the device’s surface area might be a bit limited. That said, once you get used to its size, you’ll see a lot of love here – the left and right mouse buttons are easy to click, the touchpad supports Windows Precision drivers, and the magnetic feature The palm rejection also works well, making sure the pointer doesn’t accidentally move when you’re typing on the unit. Unfortunately is the one This laptop doesn’t come with a fingerprint reader, and the built-in webcam also doesn’t support Windows Hello Face either.
Performance and battery life
The MSI Modern 15 A11SB is powered by an 11th generation Core i7-1165G7 processor working with 16GB of DDR4 RAM and an MX450 GPU with 2GB of DDR5 memory. For storage, the laptop comes with a 512GB NVMe SSD. Obviously, the Modern 15 is a pretty heavily loaded product, and it’ll suffice for most creative workflows that use CPU-bound apps like Photoshop or Adobe Premiere.
If you only use the machine with basic requirements then there should be no problems with the performance of the machine. I have tried Open a few dozen tabs in Chrome, along with apps like Discord, Slack, Word, and Adobe XD running in the background, and even so, I’ve never experienced a slow or dull display. To give you better visuals, I ran a series of synthetic benchmarks on the laptop, including PCMark 10 and CineBench R23 and Modern 15 that gave satisfactory scores on all tests. investigation. For gaming, the laptop can deliver a steady frame rate in eSports titles, as long as you’re willing to compromise with the game’s graphical fidelity.
For example, Apex Legends ran perfectly well on a laptop at its lowest preset (resolution was set to 1,920 x 1,080), and the mine managed to hit around 65-70 fps in-game. It’s true that the fps dropped when I was in the middle of intense gunfights, but I’m sure I could add a bit more frames if me also lowered the resolution. Friend also Don’t worry – the laptop doesn’t overheat either. Although the fans can make a little noise, I am more satisfied with the device’s heat dissipation ability. All told, the performance of the MSI Modern 15 should be sufficient for most casual gamers as well as business professionals.
