We recently talked to Jesús Ramirez, founder of the Photoshop Training Channel, about his experience using the MSI Creator Z16 laptop. While running one of the most popular Photoshop YouTuber channels in the world with over 1.5 million subscribers, Jesús needs a laptop that is up to the task.
“There are a lot of challenges to overcome in my work. I’m both a designer and a content creator,” Jesús says. “For my design work, I need to solve the individual challenges that each project brings while maintaining the client’s happiness. As a content creator, I need to come up with video tutorials that teach a valuable technique while making it concise and entertaining.”
He continues, “My computer is the main tool for my job, and I am 100 percent reliant on it. I need a powerful machine that can handle any task I throw at it — including photo processing, video editing and 3D rendering.”
A laptop that’s up to the task
Recently, Jesús got an MSI Creator Z16 laptop. On its arrival, Jesús says his first impressions were of admiration, saying it was a “beautiful looking laptop.”
“I also immediately noticed the taller screen, which would make my workspace easier to see.” After using the laptop, he notes, “… it was quite fast compared to other laptops I’ve used. I experimented with Photoshop, Premiere and After Effects and didn’t notice any lag or lack of performance as I had seen with other laptops.”
Talking about his setup, Jesús says, “I use an MSI desktop as my main desktop computer. The MSI Z16 makes an excellent addition to my production workflow. It is a powerful machine that I could use on the go. For me, my laptop is all about performance. The Z16 gives me what I need and more.”
When assessing his need for a powerful laptop, Jesús says, “For me, performance with photo and video editing applications is a must. The MSI Creator Z16 has a powerful i9 4.9GHz processor and a powerful GeForce RTX 30 series GPU. Other systems I’ve had in the past were not able to run certain applications or run them slowly. The added performance on the Z16 makes it a fantastic option for creators on the go.”
“I think that creators on the go who require speed and power to run photo or video editing applications are the ones who would benefit the most from owning an MSI Creator Z16.” He continues, “I recently went on a trip to Hawaii and I received an email from a client who needed changes on a project I thought was complete. Luckily I had my Z16 laptop with me and I was able to complete the project without any issues. Photoshop and Premiere both worked great. I was able to do screen capture on Camtasia while running Photoshop and Premiere. And editing the videos was no challenge. With other laptops I’ve owned, editing in Premiere or doing a screen recording while editing in Photoshop would have slowed the system down to a point where it would have affected my work.”
When choosing the Creator 16, Jesús says, “I chose the MSI Creator Z16 because it is a powerful computer. Performance and speed is my main concern and this laptop gives me both and more”.
The new MSI Creator Z16 features a new unibody design with CNC Aluminum chassis and comes in a stunning lunar grey. It also has the world’s first MiniLED RGB Keyboard.

Its self-lighting pixels deliver realistic color for photos and or video. Plus, it has the performance you need, housing an Intel 11th Gen i7 chip and an NVIDIA RTX3080 GPU.
