Feminist Laptop ??

MSI- Rose Pink Prestige

targeting female market?

i7-10710U (6-core, 15watt tdp)

Nvidia GTX 1650 (MaxQ)

4K screen (optional)

Comes with pink bag, pink mouse, pink dragon keychain < That's alotta pink >

235316-1

The only other competition is Razr's Blade Quartz Pink 15.

This looks to be more of a slate-pink, vs the warmer pink on the MSI

< a much more powerful machine w/ up to 2060 + 9750h cpu for pink version>

< kinda weird that the Max config isn't available for the Pink version, 2080(mq) or Quadro rtx 5000. >

The CPU is 9th gen 9750h (~65watt part), but way faster than 10th gen i7-10710U on the MSI (15-25 watt part)

235320-2

If I understand feminists correctly they will hate these.  The lack of high end hardware is an insult as it suggests females can't know how to do complicated things on a computer or that their time is worth less, and the colour is a reminder that all designers are males and worse than that - males who think the only way to sell to the "stupid" half of society is to make a pink version.

Personally I think the above is crazy and it's good to have pink options that will appeal to some female buyers - who are more than welcome to pick the standard boring grey version if they so wish.

I didn't know this. I assumed with all those breast cancer ribbons and pink church fish emblems, that pink is popular.

idk what this has anything at all to do with feminism. because it's pink? my avatar is pink, am I automatically a feminist? do feminists even like girly things, I think it's the other way around.

Well, feminism is broad, you have academics which narrow it to suit their particular agenda.   Overtime, it's become a very general term, an inclination/ direction.

While I don't doubt there's an anti-pink feminist cabal in existence, surely they're fringe.

I think the colours look good in the pictures, but their quartz keyboard is just bad. It is a nice change though that razer isn't just using pink as another breast cancer advert. But I doubt this will get many women into gaming, since most people I see with the quartz lineups are men.

edit- thought this was razer not msi lol

I can do complicated things on my computer. I'm known as "the person who can fix things" around here

Laptop seems more than fine when it comes to specifications. I don't see what the big deal is with the color, who cares. Sure, there are women or even men out there who would prefer a pink setup. It's fine that there is this option too, obviously.
