MSI P65 Creator 8RF review: A slimline creative powerhouse

 

This versatile workstation is slim, lightweight and very powerful – but build quality is sadly lacking

Light and slim ; 144Hz display ; Plenty of power

Suspect build quality ; Not enough storage ; Terrible touchpad

If what you really want is a gaming machine, therefore, I recommend you go for the HP Omen 15 (2018) which has superior build quality and represents considerably better value for money. Or, if you’re sold on the idea of a laptop that can do it all,...

Название “MSI P65 8RF Creator” недвузначно намекает, что герой нашего обзора основан на GS65 8RF. Разница в том, что новая модель нацелена на разработчиков цифрового контента, которые в своей работе используют приложения вроде Adobe Photoshop или Adobe...
