MSI Creator 17 A10SGS Laptop Review: Winning with a Mini LED
The most expensive configuration of the Creator 17 delivered a mixed performance in our test. While the Mini LED display, offered as a first by MSI, is able to convince in all aspects, steeling the show from other competitors (almost 1000 cd/m² brightness!), the case offers less than could be expected (stability, quality impression, etc.).
Considering the performance of the RTX 2080 Super Max-Q, which stands in no relation to the price premium, we would recommend the more affordable version with the RTX 2070 (Super) Max-Q to interested buyers. The use of the Core i7-10875H Turbo could also be better.
The fact that the Creator 17 will land in our Top 10 for Photo and Video Editing despite those weaknesses, is not least due to its rich connection equipment including Thunderbolt 3. For the successor, we would wish for a more robust and less noisy case whose cooling system does not operate as close to the limits.
