Reviews for the MSI Creator 17 B11UH-241
Source: PC Mag
Cutting-edge technology is often accompanied by a painful price, and the MSI Creator 17 with Mini LED display is no exception to this rule. The screen is simply a marvel, providing an incredibly bright image with remarkable contrast for content professionals. At a price that approaches $4,000, however, our test configuration is likely beyond the budget of enthusiasts and makes sense only for workstation-class creative pros who seek the best display for their endeavors. Lower-end Creative 17 models are more versatile and affordable, but force you to sacrifice Mini LED bragging rates (though their higher refresh rates would make the MSI better able to pull double duty as a creative machine and gaming rig). As mentioned, Apple is expected to release new MacBook Pro models this fall with an overhaul that could include Mini LED displays, so it might be worth waiting to see the next generation of the 16-inch MacBook Pro before pulling the trigger on the Creator 17.
