amazon MSI P65 Creator reviews
“Every great magic show consists of three acts. The first stage is called “The Pledge” where the magician presents you with something very simple: a deck of cards, a bird, or a human. He will present the object in front of your view. Maybe he will get you to check if this material is really real, has not been altered, normal. But of course… maybe not.
The second act is titled “The Turn”. The magician will make that ordinary thing extraordinary. Now you are trying to find the secret … but you will not find it, because you really are not observing. You don’t really want to know. You want to be fooled. But you do not want to clap right then. For it is never enough to make something disappear; it needs to go back.
So every performance has a third part, the hardest part, titled “The Prestige”. ” – The Prestige.
Thinking of MSI laptops, we have been familiar with a famous technology brand with a unique design language with the famous and flamboyant “Red dragon” logo like the MSI GE series with MSI GE73 8RF as the representative; or more or less bulky, with oversized heat sinks for gaming such as powerhouse GT83 Titan / GT75 Titan.
But to be able to do like Dell XPS, HP Specter, Apple Macbook, Microsoft Surface, … models with minimalistic design and truly sophisticated and lasting beauty have never been the strength of MSI. Even with the P Series of the previous generation or the high-end MSI GS series, the lines in the machines did not bring the elegance to the names above … Until the appearance of the MSI GS65 Stealth Thin, brings a new wind in MSI’s creative philosophy and shows attention to Content Creator customer groups with MSI Prestige P65 Creator.
At IFA Berlin 2018, the MSI P65 Creator officially introduced the technology world as the name “Creator” implies, this laptop is designed to target creative talents such as photographers, designers, or 3D artists.
It seems that MSI has recognized the successful formula from the Stealth Thin and applied it directly to a new product for the content creator client group, as the P65 Creator carries almost all of the GS65’s features with some favors certain.
The MSI P65 Creator White will be delivered to the user’s hand in a wooden suitcase. The gift is relatively straightforward and minimalistic but equally subtle with a smooth and flat surface, along with the MSI logo engraved on the lid of the box.
However, with such a size, moving the whole box together with the laptop to satisfy through the beauty in the unity of the product bundle is not practical at all. Therefore, the second physical gift from MSI to customers who have ordered a limited edition Prestige P65 Creator is a leather carrying pouch, which is very useful and still aesthetically synchronized.
The design of the MSI P65 White is heavily influenced by the GS65 Stealth Thin, or more correctly, a different version of a gaming laptop with a new ivory white shirt. However, the golden diamond-cut lines have been replaced with silver luster, cleverly blending into the smooth overall of the laptop, leaving only the MSI logo engraved on the screen lid.
It seems that MSI is reconsidering the brand’s design language from the “informative” logo “GamingGSeries”, then more abstracting the Logo protected by Corning Gorilla Glass and now “gimmicky” “Simple and completely ingenious.”
If you can tell about a single weakness on the “twin” of the P65, it is the keyboard. With a gaming laptop like GS65, the keyboard is equipped too “fragile” and difficult to feel good handling as well as satisfaction when using. But that’s completely different for a machine aimed at creative users like MSI Prestige P65 Creator.
The keyboard’s softness and tranquility go all the way through the keys but still, sound softly nourishing the flow of thought to continue. The neat layout also reduces the pressure from life already cluttered with projects, .psd, .raw files, …
There is only one thing that hurts, especially for those who love perfection, nothing but fingerprint readers. No matter how smooth and precise the touchpad is, whether it is in harmony with the surrounding environment can not cover the “coal lump”.
Also, the position of the fingerprint reader is relatively confusing when placed on the left side of the touchpad, making it difficult for the majority of non-handed users. Hopefully, in the design of the next version, MSI is easy to think of other more efficient alternatives, such as integrating this indispensable part of this Windows Hello security program onto the power button.
The hinge texture is a plus, exceptionally smooth and has a swivel range of up to 180 degrees. This is a no more encouraging signal when content creator, known for his piety with the “cat” religion, is now free from heartbreak when the emperors jump on the screen by mistake. Or simply the “traps” on the hinges are hardly activated.
If to say that the MSI P65 can easily handle 4K video as a daily task, it is indeed worth reviewing the statement above by the global marketing representative from MSI. However, when compared to other high-end notebooks for accomplishing high-end video-related tasks, this machine is definitely on top.
Although there are many similarities with the design language of the HP Specter series, it is acknowledged that the MSI P65 Creator will work better with media. With 3 USB 3.1 ports, Thunderbolt 3, mini DisplayPort, HDMI, 2 audio + mic jacks and RJ-45 (LAN), the P65 can connect and work with multiple storage devices at the same time.
The configuration of the Prestige P65 Creator Limited Edition is particularly impressive with the i7-8750H, GTX 1070 Max-Q 8GB GDDR5 that still ensures the size of 17.9mm, thickness and weight of 1.88kg; More than 2 regular Silver versions with GTX 1060 Max-Q 6GB GDDR5 and GTX 1050Ti 4GB GDDR5.
Not only that, still equipped with an IPS standard screen that covers 72% NTSC and ~ 99% sRGB color ranges, in the limited edition MSI P65 Creator White, the manufacturer’s favor is still possible current via 144Hz refresh rate. To be honest, though, the 144Hz also appeared on the GS65 and did not have an impact on the creative process.
Although there is no direct experience, but with a 4-cell / 82Whr battery with the same configuration, the MSI Prestige P65 Creator White Limited Edition will theoretically be able to work from 5-6 hours like the GS65.
The Prestige P65 Creator is MSI’s big step forward into a market where a group of customers has never been their strong point. Will the top gaming brand from Taiwan be able to complete its Prestige P65 Creator magic and continue with the WS65 Mobile Workstation project, or will just be in the shadow of another version, of the MSI GS65, like like the ultimate fate of Robert Angier.
