MSI releases the new Prestige Series notebooks

MSI has released a new line of portable notebooks called Prestige Series. As the name of the line suggests it comes with premium hardware and targets people who work with multimedia files, various creative projects and multiple business files that require performance.

The new Prestige Series bets on a premium boutique design, high-speed hardware and a number of additional technologies that make working with a Prestige Series notebook a pleasure. The line currently has two representatives – the PE70 2QD-062US model and the PE60 2QD-060US. There are minor differences between the two models – the former notebook offers a 17.3-inch Full HD eDP wide view angle display and 16 GB of DDR3L-1600 SDRAM (2 x 8 GB) while the latter has a 15.6-inch Full HD eDP wide view angle display and 12 GB of DDR3L-1600 memory (8 GB + 4 GB). The difference in the display sizes creates differences in the chassis – the first model measures 16.49 x 11.02 x 1.14 inches (419 x 280 x 29 mm) and weighs 5.95 lbs (2.7 kg), while the second one measures 15.07 x 10.23 x 1.06 inches (383 x 260 x 27 mm) and weighs 5.29 lbs (2.4 kg).
