Content creators like photographers and videographers demand consistent color reproduction between displays, but screens with 100% sRGB coverage are pretty rare in notebooks outside of bulky, expensive mobile workstations. MSI's new Prestige Series might bridge that gap. The company claims that the displays in these portable PCs are factory-calibrated, and that they reproduce 100% of the sRGB gamut. That's impressive in a notebook that starts at $1,199.
There's more to the Prestige Series than a pretty face. MSI taps an Intel Core i7-4720HQ CPU with four cores and eight threads. The i7-4720HQ has a 2.6GHz base clock, and it can turbo up to 3.6GHz. An Nvidia GeForce GTX 950M pushes those precisely-colored pixels.
The 15.6" Prestige PE60 comes with 12GB of RAM, while the 17.3" PE70 ships with 16GB. Each is equipped with a 1TB mechanical drive, which isn't surprising given the relatively affordable price. These notebooks aren't MacBook thin, either—both are a little over an inch thick. The PE60 weighs a little over five pounds, while the PE70 tips the scales at six.
MSI's claims about the Prestige Series' screens' color reproduction are impressive, but it's unclear what type of panel the company is using. We've reached out to MSI for more info.
The Prestige Series should be available now, with the PE60 listing at $1,199 and the PE70 at $1,299.
