    I'm considering replacing my 2016 Asus Vivobook Pro N580VD (15.6", i5-7300HQ, GTX 1050 4GB) with the MSI Prestige 15. Does anyone here own the MSI? I'm mostly interested in any obvious downsides to the MSI. Keyboard/trackpad issues don't matter, I use a Roost laptop stand and a Bluetooth keyboard+mouse 95% of the time.

    Do MSI offer international warranty if you travel a lot with your laptop, and need warranty service in a different country? I travel a lot. I'm based in Ireland but travel a lot around the EU and some in Asia.

    The reasons I'm considering the MSI:
    - Lovely small & lightweight size, a whole pound less than my Vivobook when you include the charger
    - Decent build quality, if not top of the range
    - 7-8 hr battery life in flight mode, can work on long trips
    - 2 x M.2 SSD slots
    - Good enough specs for light gaming (the GTX 1650 Max-Q is 30-35% faster than my GTX 1050)
    - OK price point at ~1,600 Euros

    Would be very interested in hearing from anyone who has the MSI Prestige 15 re. pros and cons in real world use.
