MSI PS42 (8RB)

 

An ultraportable from gaming-PC maker MSI, the PS42 offers mid-level graphics performance in a very slim package, but it suffers from a stodgy design and a tiny touchpad.

Excellent screen quality. Robust port selection. Thin and light. SD card slot. Comfortable keyboard. Decent gaming performance.

Awkward webcam placement. Ho-hum design. Tiny touchpad. Poor audio quality.

Bottom Line: An ultraportable from gaming-PC maker MSI, the PS42 offers mid-level graphics performance in a very slim package, but it suffers from a stodgy design and a tiny touchpad.

Vivid display; Discrete GPU; Slim design; Lots of ports ; Short battery life; Unflattering webcam; Poor speakers ; The MSI PS42 8RB is a compelling ultrabook with a dedicated GPU, but poor battery life holds it back from greatness.
