Reviews for the MSI Creator Z16P B12UHST-046

90% MSI Creator Z16P review: A content creator’s dream
Source: Laptop Mag English
MSI’s Creator Z16P is close to being the perfect content creating workstation laptop. With a potent Intel Core i9 CPU, an Nvidia RTX 3080Ti GPU, and a combination of style and class-leading performance that makes it a winning choice for content creators looking for a workhorse portable workstation to whip their workflows. The Z16P is one of the best best workstations around for content creation with the ability to churn out media projects with ease. However, in today's economy, at $4,299, it's a serious investment that may be beyond some budgets, but if you can afford it, it’s an option I highly recommend.

70% MSI Creator Z16P review: Creators yes, gamers no
Source: Digital Trends English
The MSI Creator Z16P is one of the faster Windows machines you can buy for creative work, and its display is good enough for all but the most demanding creators. It’s also a very expensive laptop, meaning it’s an investment best made by those who need the utmost in performance and don’t want to switch to MacOS. Gamers should definitely look elsewhere, though, because the Creator Z16P severely underperformed in this area. I’m not sure if it was a driver or hardware problem, but the laptop simply didn’t live up to its potential.

16.00":

15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.

The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.
