Reviews for the MSI Creator Z17 A12UHST-052

80% MSI Creator Z17 review
Source: Techradar English
The MSI Creator Z17 is a slight vertical side-step forward for the Taiwanese manufacturer’s creative- and gaming-leaning line of high performance laptops. From the start, there’s a lot of improvement from what we saw in our MSI Creator Z16 review. The well-received 16:10 display with a 165Hz refresh rate gets stylus pen support which enhances its task capability (MSI touts the Creator Z17 as the world’s first 17-inch touch screen laptop with stylus support). Meanwhile, the laptop has some seriously powerful specs. A 12th-Gen Intel Core i9-12900H, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti, 64 GB of DDR5 RAM and 2TB storage are all packed into this military-grade chassis weighing a bit under 8 pounds.

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.

Usually, old laptops with 14-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.


MSI: Micro-Star International (MSI), is a Taiwan based computer hardware manufacturer since 1986 best known for desktop computer motherboards. MSI also designs and manufactures graphics cards, barebone PCs, notebook computers, networking products, servers, multimedia, consumer electronics, and storage devices. MSI, as most Taiwanese computer manufacturers, sells products on OEM/ODM basis. It also sells products worldwide based on its own brand name "MSI". The market share of laptops with the MSI brand is rather low.

MSI is not present in the smartphone market. As a laptop manufacturer, MSI has a medium market share and is not among the Top 10 global manufacturers. The ratings of MSI laptops are above average in the tests (as of 2016).


85%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
