MSI looks to have outdone itself with its new Creator 17. The device, on paper, looks untouchable, regardless of what aspect you look at it. Of course, that is also reflected in the price tag, which while might not be available as of now, will be a handful, but what else can you expect from a premium content creation device. With the latest specs from two of the most well-known brand in chip making, Intel and NVIDIA, and an astonishing display, the Creator 17 is one of the most dangerous weapons in MSI’s arsenal.

Today we are giving you a quick overview of the MSI Creator 17.

MSI Creator 17: Full Specs


The laptop comes enveloped in a stylish aluminum chassis, in an onyx black color, which makes it even more elegant and mysterious. With rounded corners and sharp edges, this is one modern-looking laptop, which you can take everywhere with you, regardless of the occasion. While it is slim, measuring at 20.25 mm, the weight is definitely a bit of an issue, with the laptop weighing 2.45 kg. You will definitely need a sturdy laptop pouch to carry it around. The laptop also doesn’t have a lot of branding, at least on the outside. The lid features the famous MSI dragon logo, which is now embossed and has a glossy finish.


The device offers a single choice when it comes to the display, but it is plenty good, so you don’t have to worry about it. For starters, it has a diagonal of 17.3 inches, a 4K resolution, and uses an IPS panel. Furthermore, its specs go above and beyond to give the consumer the best possible experience when using the device for his next creative project. The display uses MiniLED technology, which prevents light bleed from bright objects, and dramatically improves how the consumer perceives darker colors. The panel has a maximum brightness of 1000 nits, covers 100% of the DCI-P3 gamut, and comes with a CalMAN verification, which translates to great color accuracy, with a dE value below 2.
