The Perfect Creator Notebook? MSI PS63 Modern Review

The MSI PS63 Modern isn’t a headline-grabbing notebook but it packs a decent Whiskey Lake processor and a discrete GTX 1050 Max-Q GPU. That combination gives it some of the best battery life we’ve seen in a 15″ ultra portable laptop and pretty reasonable performance too. But there are some areas that are cause for concern and do those prevent this from becoming the ultimate notebook for on-the-go creators?

  1. great detailed review – minor nitpick is I would have wanted more input on the build quality. but this definitely sounds like my next upgrade machine, though I might have to wait until they allow charging on that type-C port on next gen.

  2. I just ordered the 8SC version with the 1650 processor for $1299.00. What are your thoughts with this GPU for the price? I also picked up 32gb RAM and I will be putting a 1tb 970 evo plus m.2 in it.

  3. Dont know if I should choose PS63 or P65 creator… Wanna use it for modelling in CAD and Zbrush, taking it to school and light gaming sometimes.

  4. This looks like perfect guy for developing. I wish I can remove video card from it and make it cheaper but whatever. At the end I ordered Dell. And the only reason: screen brightness. Dell is exactly same $1399 price. But display is 400nit.

  5. I want to try msi, but quality control drops the a bit too much for me and warranty/repairs can be a hassle. All manufactures should have an honest recall/out of warranty repair program…as a customer, i like to see manufacture confidently backing the quality of their hardware, but this feels like a fairy tale.

  6. WHY THE F didn't you insert the other ram stick to enable dual channel then? the performance part was pointless as is.

  7. Extended battery life seems nice but doesn't seem to justify the price for me. Around the same price, I'd rather have much stronger hardware and just plug in the charger. Until we see price cuts, this product is uncompetitive imo.

  8. MicroSD card slot, fingerprint scanner on the trackpad…seems this laptop was made for creators by people who don't create.

    Still, I like the looks of this laptop. But one can get the Lenovo Yoga 730 with similar specs and get the benefits of having a convertible too.
