Reviews for the MSI Creator 17 A10SGS
In contrast to the similarly equipped GS75, the Creator 17 is targeted towards creative professionals as the name already tells us. However, its most unique feature is not the target group, but the brand-new Mini LED display with HDR support. Is it worth the high price, or is the technology just smoke and mirrors?

Lisa Gade reviews the MSI Creator 17, a 17.3” mobile workstation and laptop for creatives with an optional mini LED 4K display. The silver aluminum clad Creator 17 is in some ways a reinvented MSI GE75 Raider with more staid looks, a white backlit keyboard and your choice of a full HD IPS 144Hz display, IPS 4K wide gamut and 4K mini LED HDR 1000 wide gamut displays. The laptop is available with a range of NVIDIA dedicated graphics with Optimus, ranging from an RTX 2060 to the RTX 2080 Super Max-Q in our unit. It has an Intel Core i7-10875H 8 core CPU, 2 M.2 NVMe SSD slots, up to 64GB DDR4 RAM, a fingerprint scanner and Windows Hello IR camera.

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.
