MSI GS65 Stealth Thin review: A milestone for laptop gaming

 

MSI's GS65 Stealth Thin is one of the most impressive gaming laptops today, mostly because it fits in an NVIDIA GTX1070 Max-Q GPU in a 4.1-pound frame. It's almost as portable as an Ultrabook, but it has enough power to contend with gaming desktops.

The lightest gaming laptop we’ve seen ; Solid performance with NVIDIA’s GTX 1070 ; Max-Q Great battery life ; 144Hz display is smooth and colorful ; Gorgeous case design

Trackpad is stiff and hard to use ; Display is limited to 1080p

Trade disputes be damned.

This MSI laptop is great for gaming and work

 

It ticks all the boxes… almost

Gorgeous screen ; High-end gaming performance ; Shallow yet solid keyboard ; Thin and light

Flexes in certain parts ; Subpar speakers ; No Windows Hello

While I do wish the GS65 had better build quality and better speakers, it has a lot of other new thin-and-light gaming laptops beat for both gaming and productivity needs. Simply put, it is one of the best gaming laptops you can buy right now.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin 8RE review: Stylish enough for work and powerful enough for play

 

The GS65 Stealth Thin features a 6-core Core i7, VR-ready graphics yet still weights just 4 lbs.

Six cores of speed in a surprisingly light laptop ; Webcam stays on top despite a thin bezel ; It's only four pounds

Difficult to access M.2 slots ; Chassis flexes very easily

Just a few years ago, if you said you wanted 1080p Very High or Ultra gaming performance in a laptop, you’d be lifting eight pounds of laptop. If you wanted a six-core CPU too, that’d be 12 pounds of laptop with a desktop chip inside. And decent...

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

 

The MSI GS65 Stealth Thin is a slim Max-Q gaming laptop with fast performance, slick looks, and a long battery life. Only the less-than-stellar build quality keeps it from earning our top recommendation.

Thin, light, and attractive design. Fast new Intel Core i7 "Coffee Lake" processor. Very strong HD gaming performance. Long battery life. Lots of game-centric software features.

Construction doesn't feel especially premium. So-so keyboard. A little short on storage.

Bottom Line: The MSI GS65 Stealth Thin is a slim Max-Q gaming laptop with fast performance, slick looks, and a long battery life. Only the less-than-stellar build quality keeps it from earning our top recommendation.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin Review

 

Say hello to my skinny friend. At a mere 4.1 pounds and 0.7 inches thick (reviewed at $1,999, or $1,799 starting), MSI's GS65 Stealth Thin is one of the company's slimmest gaming laptops to date. It's also one of the first gaming systems to feature...

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

 

This is a very light and thin gaming laptop minus the gamer looks. It has a classy metal chassis and weighs just 4.1 pounds. The GS65 starts at $1,799 with an NVIDIA GTX 1060 and the GTX 1070 Max-Q model (used in this review) starts around $2,000. All...

MSI GS65 Stealth review

 

The ultimate crowd pleaser gaming laptop

Attractive, subtle design ; Gorgeous, fast display ; Excellent performance ; Effective thermal management

Underside gets burning hot ; Forthcoming biometric login ; Poor native audio

For the price, the MSI GS65 Stealth is one of the best gaming laptops you can buy today. This is officially the most impressive Nvidia Max-Q gaming laptop that we’ve tested to date, outclassing most rivals by trouncing them in design and style.

- All out gaming power - Excellent Quality - Very athestically pleasing - Fantastic for demanding productivity work

- Price is high but you really do get what you paid for - SSD can get full very quickly however it’s not hard to upgrade, I personally have a Samsung T5 portable SSD and it’s perfect for a on the go gaming set up
