Reviews for the MSI Creator 17 A10SFS-269
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)?

This large display size is used for laptops which are mainly intended for an use on a desk.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.
