In terms of build quality, the MSI Modern 14 B4 should fair good because Modern is a business-grade laptop.

Honestly just buy this laptop if you want overall good build quality with narrow screen bezels and a light weight.

I have purchased this laptop for my company and found out that it can not be upgraded. It does not have TPM, and there is no way in UEFI to enable it.. So, I guess, it is a waste of money. I can not believe that. It is supposed to be business laptop. No Windows 11, no Bitlocker, no nothing.. Really disappointed.

Everyone, hi! You can buy this laptop, for sure. It does have TPM installed, but it is disabled for an unknown reason. You can enable it by running TPM Enable Tool, extracting the archive into C: (to avoid long and complex folder names) and running it as an administrator. If successfull, you'll see new BIOS options after reboot. Here is the link:

Dear MSI support - your laptop is great, but I personally think that you have a lot to improve. It is ridiculuous how a user should investigate those things all by himself.

So far I have noticed several unconvenient things:
1. Fn button is on the right side, which makes it inconvenient for certain function keys. I think, making smaller LCtrl and putting extra Fn would be great.
2. No Home, End separate buttons - you have to press Fn and that is also inconvenient.
3. BIOS|UEFI would not shut down the PC and it keeps working and working if rebooted unattended and there is a password intalled. I think it would be nice if after a minute or so the laptop would turn off if BIOS/UEFI password wasn't entered.
