Here you have an almost perfect product.With this A10RB, MSI is well positioned in relation to other competing models.A medium-sized, 14 inches-sized screen that you can slip into a computer bag and take with you on the go. As for the processor level, this model is equipped with the Intel Core i7-10510U. Its power will give you the assurance of having a laptop that will work very well for 10 years. In short, this model will give you full satisfaction for an Internet browsing use. The amount of RAM provided is 16 Gb. A large quantity, more than you will need for strictly web browsing use.
The size of the hard drive makes this laptop one of the biggest. Even if you think 512 Gb is more than enough, it’s surprising to discover that it’s easy to fill a disc completely with photos, movies or games in a very short time. In case you would have to do without any internet connection, this size of space can be interesting.
Finally, an important point for a laptop: autonomy; here you will have 7 hours of freedom before you have to plug it back into the socket. This is standard for this range of laptops, and for the type of battery it is equipped with. Because of this last point, you can either switch to a competitor’s laptop or always have the product plugged in; it’s up to you.

Making this A10RB a multimedia tool, such seems to have been the objective of MSI. In the age of multimedia, this laptop has evolved and is a cross between a TV, radio and a desktop computer. We discovered through the tests we put it to, that it is one of the best on the market. In this section we will look at features such as screen size, resolution, built-in speakers.

Unfortunately, no glossy screen is available on this model. The effect is of lower quality in environments with intermediate or even low light levels – often corresponding to the conditions in which a film is viewed. It will be more delicate to perfectly distinguish the images without getting tired.
Therefore, when used in daylight conditions, you will appreciate the lack of this feature, as the light induces reflections, making it difficult to view.
