MSI has announced a new laptop in its productivity-focused Creator series of laptops with the new Intel Tiger Lake-H processors. It is targeted squarely as a MacBook Pro alternative for Windows users. So, let’s dig into the specifications, features, and expected price in Nepal of the MSI Creator Z16.
MSI Creator Z16 Overview:
Design and Display
Creator Z16’s design is almost identical to the MacBook Pro. It is a 16-inch laptop built for creators with an aluminum unibody chassis. The Z16 comes in two models, both of which have the same panel size, a resolution of 2500 x 1600 pixels, and a 16:10 aspect ratio, which is also shared by the MacBook Pro.
Moving on, this screen has a 120Hz refresh rate and covers 100% of the DCI-P3 color gamut. Similarly, it has a MiniLED-backlit keyboard. MacBook’s grey design is replaced by a clean black chassis with a minimalistic MSI logo.
Moving on to the performance side, you can pick between Intel Core i7-11800H or Core i9-11900H processor. These are the newest Intel CPUs under the company’s 11th-gen Tiger Lake-H series. Aside from that, both models have Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 (65W) graphics and 32GB of RAM. Likewise, the Creator Z16 is available with 1TB or 2TB of SSD storage.
