Definitely my favorite laptop when I first got one. It’s a high performance work laptop with a touch screen and pen support, making it more than ideal for those who need to sign a lot of things. Of course, my favorite part is the ability to flip it around and use it like a tablet. Mainly the specs are the same as the Prestige A16 AI+ , but with touch and a faster 165Hz screen.

Will They Arrive In Malaysia?

So far, comfirmation for all 3 are still in the works, but signs do point to Malaysian availability happening, we’re just unsure when but it should be in the months to come. For now, I must say that I am looking forward to using these laptops (especially the Summit), as I’m curious to see just how much of an impact the likes of MSI AI Engine is going to analyse what I’m currently doing and provide me with the best possible settings for those scenarios.
