Currently, Newegg is offering the heavily tricked out MSI Prestige 15 for $3,269. It's a workhorse of a machine with specs that are designed to leave Apple's laptop in the dust.
The upgraded model being sold at Newegg features a 15.6-inch 1080p display, 10th-gen Core i7-10710U 6-Core CPU, 64GB of RAM, 8TB SSD, and a GTX 1650 Max-Q GPU with 4GB of dedicated memory. By comparison, a fully upgraded 16-inch MacBook Pro would set you back $6,099.
If that's too much power, you can also get the base MSI Prestige 15 for $1,399 at Amazon. In our MSI Prestige 15 review, we praised it for its lightweight, attractive chassis, solid performance and battery life. At 3.6 pounds and 14.4 x 9.2 x 0.6 inches, it's lighter than the HP Spectre x360 (4.6 pounds, 14.2 x 9.8 x 0.8 inches), Dell XPS 15 (4.5 pounds and 14.1 x 9.3 x 0.5-0.7 inches), and the 16-inch MacBook Pro (4.3 pounds, 14.1 x 9.7 x 0.6 inches).
Both machines are for pro users only.
