Everyone likes colors, and now MSI's offering a whole heck of a lot of them for its Prestige 14 Evo and Modern Series laptops. Modern 15 Series laptops aren't getting any new shades and will retain their Carbon Grey and Urban Silver options, but Modern 14 Series machines are going absolutely wild with such daring choices as Bluestone, Beige Mousse, and Carbon Grey, in addition to the classic silver color scheme. And the Prestige 14 Evo is getting a makeover as well, now selling in Pure White and Rose Pink variants to add a little life to the drab Carbon Grey.

Perchance you want a functional computer in addition to slabs of stylish, cheerily colored plastic and metal. Well, good news! The MSI Modern Series and Prestige 14 Evo have worthy specs to back up their chic exteriors.

All three varieties of MSI laptops have a lot of similarities regarding their processor ceilings, storage options, and ports. Really, the biggest difference between them all will boil down to which aesthetic you want to rock. Would you prefer to look pretty in pink with the Prestige 14 Evo or sophisticated with the Bluestone Modern 14?

That's the scoop with MSI's latest color offerings. As the laptops did before they came in a smorgasbord of calming pastel hues, they still pack quite a punch in the hardware department. The difference is that now they look a lot prettier and are probably more attractive to thieves at coffee shops.

If these colors aren't enough to sway you, then maybe something on the list of the best Windows laptops will. Or, if you want something with a starker color profile, check out the black Surface Laptop 4.
