Tired of computers with exotic shapes and RGB cladding? Never mind, MSI and Hiroshi Fujiwara have thought of you with this special edition of the Creator Z16.
MSI has just unveiled its latest laptop, developed in collaboration with a distinguished guest: Hiroshi Fujiwara, Japanese streetwear pioneer. Anyone who has already put his stamp on Bentley, Masterati or Louis Vuitton products is now tackling computers, and will soon be entitled to his limited edition of the MSI Creator Z16.
Compared to the original model, the screen has received a little makeover; instead of the IPS QHD 120 Hz panel, this limited edition will be entitled to a MinILED panel certified HDR 1000, with an impressive refresh rate of 165Hz.
The rest of the device is identical to the basic version. Both weigh 2.2kg, house a 90 WHr battery, an individual key-backlit keyboard, two USB-A 3.2 Gen 2 ports, and two DisplayPort and Thunderbolt compatible USB-C ports. They also have the same two M.2 slots, and the Wi-Fi 6 standard.
A sleek design inspired by streetwear
Since this is a collaboration with a designer, and not the least, we obviously expect real efforts on the aesthetic, and at this level, the contract seems entirely honored. The whole is very successful, with a sober but very elegant “black on black” effect; it stands out clearly from the rowdy exuberance displayed by certain devices overloaded with colored diodes.
In the strictest tradition of the Creator series, we are also entitled to expect heavy hardware, and future buyers will not be disappointed on this side. This version will be equipped with a latest generation Intel Core i9 processor and an RTX 3060 6GB graphics card, supported by a maximum of 64GB of DDR4. A little monster in the world of laptops, who should be more than enough to do demanding jobs away from their usual workstation.
The exact price of this edition has not yet been revealed, as its release date in France which remains mysterious. On the other hand, you have to be prepared to play the wallet, because the Creator line has traditionally been one of the most expensive devices in the portable ecosystem, with many devices blithely exceeding the $ 3,000 mark.
