Taiwanese electronics manufacturer MSI, a company famous for its high-end gaming laptops, has now launched its first professional laptop in India called the PS42. Priced starting at Rs. 77,990, the thin and light gaming laptop features 8th-gen Intel Core processors coupled an Nvidia GeForce MX150 graphics card, allowing it to power through basic graphic intensive software.
The high-end variant of the PS42, which is priced at Rs. 99,990, is powered by an 8th-gen Intel Core i7 processor coupled with an Nvidia GeForce MX150 GPU, 16GB of RAM and a 512GB NVMe PCIe SSD. The ultra-portable laptop weighs in at just 1.1kg and has a slim 15.9mm frame, making it the perfect option for people who work on the go.
The laptop features a 14-inch full HD IPS-level display with minimal 5.7mm bezels on all sides, giving it a screen to body ratio of 81%. The display comes packed with MSI’s True Color 2.0 technology which gives it the ability to display next-to-perfect colors and allows content creators to calibrate their display according to their own specific needs.
The speakers on the PS42 are backed by Nahimic 3 audio engine, giving the laptop an immersive 7.1 cinematic surround sound. MSI has also leveraged its expertise in developing great thermal solutions while designing the PS42, giving it a dual exhaust thermal design to prevent overheating under intense load. Even with all the impressive hardware and a sleek design, the MSI PS42 packs in 2 full-sized USB ports, two USB Type-C ports, a 3.5mm combo jack, and an SD card reader.
On top of that, the MSI PS42 packs in a substantial battery, with the company claiming that the device will last up to 10 hours on a single charge.
