MSI Creator Z16 laptop review: Gamer meets creator


The Creator Z16 is MSI's shot at a MacBook Pro alternative. The 120Hz screen is excellent, but it's not a laptop without its faults.

“The MSI Creator Z16 has its charms, but can't quite beat its rivals where it counts.”

MSI Creator Z16 review: thin isn’t everything


The sleek design doesn't quite make up for other flaws.

Great audio ; Powerful chips in a thin chassis ; 16:10 QHD+ 120Hz display

No HDMI port ; Ships with bloatware ; Keyboard is a bit flimsy ; Bad battery life

MSI’s Creator Z16 is a thin workstation powered by Intel’s Core i7-11800H. It’s got a well-built chassis remniscent of a MacBook Pro, but it’s got a few issues uncharacteristic of its high asking price.

MSI achieves harmony between style and substance with the Creator Z16 offering content creators a solid option to meet their needs

Massive bright, colorful screen Speedy performance ; Handles GPU and CPU-heavy editing software with ease ; Stylish and elegant design

Middling battery life ; RTX 3060 weakens the performance a bit ; Lacks HDMI port which many still uses

Review: MSi Creator Z16 A11UET-011NEU | Well Made In Every Way MSi Creator Z16 A11UET-011NEU


MSI Creator Z16 delivers on all important points - and looks good while doing it.

Super sharp design. Processor and graphics card are good enough for serious use. Plenty of RAM and storage space. Touch screen in QHD resolution.

The LCD screen is less bright than OLED screens, and 4K resolution would have been even better.

The MSI Creator Z16 is the first full-blooded “creative” computer we’ve seen from MSI. It is solidly configured with appropriate powers in both processor and graphics card as well as a really nice QHD touch screen. At the same time, it is so slim and...

MSI Creator Z16


The MSI Creator Z16 is a great hybrid solution for creative gamers

Fantastic high-refresh screen ; Slim, stylish chassis ; Golden 16:10 display ratio

Mediocre battery life for a creative laptop ; No HDMI port ; 16GB of RAM feels limiting

The MSI Creator Z16 is an industrial-styled hybrid laptop that combines features from both Creative workstations and gaming devices. Where it tries to succeed at both, there are a few issues that make it more of a toasty middleground than a champion of...

MSI Creator Z16 A11UET Review


Designed specifically for content creators and professionals, Creator Z16 A11UET laptop features the Intel Core i9-11900H, 32GB DDR4 and the RTX 3060.

This is the first laptop we’ve reviewed which features the Intel Core i9-11900H and its performance is impressive. Placing such a processor inside a laptop which has more of a focus on content creation is a good move by MSI, especially when it’s...
