90% MSI CreatorPro X17 Review
Source: PC Mag English
The best components combine with a proven, performance-maximizing design to make the MSI CreatorPro X17 one of the most formidable workstations you can buy. It dominated nearly every test we put it through, and its capabilities frequently trounce some of the best competing workstations we've reviewed. It's enough to unseat the Lenovo ThinkPad P15 Gen 2 as the best premium workstation in terms of raw performance. But independents will pay dearly for that leading performance, with a design that's big and heavy, and a price tag that's even heavier. If you're less concerned with reliability and software compatibility, you can opt for the gaming-focused MSI GT77 Titan, but it's almost the same machine, aside from a few cosmetic RGB lights and a gamer-grade GPU. The MSI CreatorPro X17 is the workstation laptop to get if money is no object and performance is an absolute must, producing numbers that our previous Editors' Choice award holders, the HP ZBook Fury 15 G8 and HP ZBook Studio G8, could only dream of.
