HP has ran out of the backlit black keyboards! You can now only get the backlit option if you order silver or rose, both with silver keyboard. This is not surprising since white backlit shows up best with black background keys. silver background keyboards don't have as high visibility as black background keys with white backlit.

First thing first, budget. This HP laptop offering best value from all the deal for high $300 to mid $400.
What kind of work, use you need? For gaming this HP would lose due to graphic demanding game would require dedicated graphic card. While GTX1650 wouldn't keep up with the newer more demanding game, it's still relevant for many games. Also dedicated graphic card is used toward 3D image work. However, for work that is less graphic reliant, the HP laptop is plenty sufficient. In some task that just relying on the CPU raw processing power, the HP laptop can even surpass the performance of the MSI.
So if you don't need it for 3D work, some graphic demanding game, and you don't want to stretch your budget, the HP laptop is very solid.
my 2c: i had a touchscreen sony laptop 7 years ago. it was fun but only really viable when the laptop was in my lap or whenever i was really staring down on the screen (if that makes sense). i found that touchscreen was only useful or convenient when i was physically reaching down on the screen, unless it's a laptop that can completely fold like a true 2 in 1. otherwise, under normal circumstances like on a desk, you'd be reaching across your body / parallel to the ground. try that -- it's just not comfortable or fast vs. using a mouse.
my two laptops since the touchscreen sony have been non-touch. again, it was fun to try but i personally never used it enough to justify any price on it. even if it were a $10 upgrade, im not sure i would go for it today, unless the screen quality itself were an improvement.
