The MSI Creator 17, according to my reviewing partner Joshua Vergara, is more "folding desktop" than actual laptop. With its 17" 4K display and desktop-class CPU and GPU suite, its spec sheet was custom formulated for creators of all stripes (hence the name). What's more, coming from the Always-Connected PCs and Razer Blades I've recently covered, the MSi Creator 17's price tag is downright reasonable given everything you're getting. But is that raw power with the sacrifices in build quality, audio output and the keyboard (oh, that keyboard)?

17.30": This display size is a standard format for desktop replacements (DTR). The DTR laptops are heavier to carry, need more power, but texts are easy to read and high resolutions are no problem. DTR are mainly intended for stationary desk use, where weight and energy hunger don't matter. In return, you enjoy the advantages of high resolutions (more details, better legibility).» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
