The MSI Creator 15 is one of the more affordable laptops aimed toward content creators. It has an Intel Core i7-10875H, Nvidia RTX 2060, 16 GB (8 GB x 2) DDR4-2666MHz RAM, 1 TB NVMe SSD, and a 15.6-inch 1080p 60 Hz touch-screen display with 72% of the NTSC color gamut. The max brightness is only 360 nits according to our tests, which seems on the low side for a creator-focused laptop.

Sentiment Score[*] 77%
Reviewers from Pcmag have found the following[***]:
MSI's Creator 15 is designed for creative work, such as photo and video editing. Its eight-core Intel Core i7 processor and XXL-size battery distinguish it. It's also a good alternative to the Razer Blade 15 Base Model, which doesn't offer as much performance for the money.
