    The previous prestige (the one I am writing on) has the issue that you press the chasis and the trackpad is also pressed (even if configured at the lowest sensitivity).

    This is a known problem for that model, how is that you don't comment on that? Has it been solved?

      Hi. I wasn't aware of this to specifically look into it, and I haven't noticed anything during this sort during my weeks with the laptop.

        Well, it is quite easy to reproduce in the (10th generation) laptop, so I assume it is not there anymore :)

        I would assume so. I know the previous models also experienced some palm-rejection issues, but I found this to be fine about it. Unfortunately I just sent this back to MSI yesterday, so I cannot check anymore.

      What do you mean by "the lowest sensitivity"? An option in Windows in the touchpad menu?

    Hey Andrei! Thanks for your as always helpful reviews !

    I am wondering if you foresee reviewing HP OMEN 17 2022 with 3070ti & 12700h.
    It has attracted my attention by a good keyboard layout, with no numpad, and well placed and sized arrow keys, together with end,home, etc. Keyboard is apparently (?) mechanical ?
    It's also relatively light for 17inch machine at 2.8kg, while offering full 150w for 3070ti.

    The only downside is a massive power brick…

    Please let me know <3

      It's difficult for us to get access to HP laptops, so the Omen is not on the list at this point. Knowing the Omen 15/16 from previous years, the 17 it should be a competitive product.

    I did a mistake buying this model (A12UD). From the very beginning it had issues that the service center (in Taiwan) couldn't fix – noisy headset output, electrical noises from underside and other. Then after just a year one of the keys fell off (didn't use it heavily), and after a year and a half the SSD died. Chassis sounds cracks when moving it or screen and USB ports sometimes don't work as expected. Never again MSI.
