Hands-on with MSI's powerful P65 laptop for content creators

MSI may best be known as a go-to brand for gamers, but the company took to the show floor at IFA 2018 with a fresh play for creators, the Prestige P65.

In terms of design, the 15.6-inch P65 resembles its gaming sibling, the G65 – just in silver or white, rather than black. Built to give creators access to enough power for speedy rendering times and multitasking, the P65 is loaded up with Intel's 8th Gen Core i7 processor, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti, 1060 Max-Q, or 1070 Max-Q graphics, and up to 32GB of RAM. All of this is packed into a chassis that's 4.14 pounds and 0.69 inches thick.

If the P65 piques your interest, it's expected to go on sale in October for around $2,000. In the meantime, we had a chance to get some hands-on time with the creator-focused laptop on the IFA show floor, and you can check out our initial impressions in the video above.
