MSI GS70 Stealth (GS70 2OD-002US)


The MSI GS70 Stealth (GS70 2OD-002US) is a solid ultraportable gaming laptop, but even with good performance and battery life, it's a close race with the competition.

Long battery life for a gaming laptop. Slim design. Includes a SteelSeries keyboard optimized for gaming. Lovely 1,920-by-1,080 display with anti-glare finish

Generic design is fairly conservative

The MSI GS70 Stealth (GS70 2OD-002US) ($1,999.99, as tested) is the latest in the small but growing niche of ultraportable gaming machines—laptops that pack gaming capability into slim, light designs with efficient mobile components and vastly better...

MSI GS70 Stealth Gaming Laptop Review


Over the last couple of generations the mobile team over at MSI have started to move towards more slimline, high end chassis for their laptops. The latest model to follow that trend is the GS70 Stealth which MSI claim to be the thinnest and lightest...

MSI GS70 Stealth review


Is this the perfect gaming notebook?

Haswell processor ; powerful Nvidia graphics ; bright, high-quality screen ; great keyboard ; stunning design

Rivals slightly quicker ; average battery life ; average colour accuracy ; no optical drive ; expensive

The MSI GS70 is a fantastic marriage of style and substance: plenty of power and a great screen crammed inside a chassis that's thinner, lighter and better-looking than most of its rivals.

MSI GS70 Stealth review


Desktop replacement laptops are traditionally heavy and bulky units, but MSI aims to banish convention with its MSI GS70 Stealth. It might have a 17in full-HD screen, a quad-core Intel processor and a discrete nVidia graphics processor, but it's all...

The MSI GS70 Stealth combines style and substance to stunning effect, with huge power levels inside a chassis that's slimmer and smarter than any other gaming laptop. The 17in screen still means this laptop isn't exactly portable, though, and the high...

There’s no doubt that the MSI GS70 Stealth (MSI GS70 2OD-246UK) is one of the coolest notebooks that we have ever seen, the combination of excellent aesthetics, incredibly slim chassis and of course its light weight, meaning that the GS70 Stealth is...

MSI GS70 2OD-Stealth 17.3 inch Laptop Review


Today we look at one of the thinnest gaming laptops available on the market. The MSI GS70 Stealth is an aluminum design only 2.2cm thick and weighing less than 2.6kg. Inside is an Intel Core i7 4700HQ...

lovely thin chassis design ; adjustable backlit keyboard ; good screen ; excellent keyboard ; Haswell processor is a powerhouse ; class leading SSD performance ; decent battery life ; Nvidia GTX765M is capable

onboard sound is average ; gets hot ; not the cleanest software install

We tested with The BluRay Disc of The Hobbit: An UnExpected Journey.

Great for Gaming but Be Informed


Definitely the most convenient and low-profile gaming laptop I've ever seen. It smashes through games like XCOM Enemy Within at 60fps, 1080p, high settings without breaking a sweat... except that if I put it on my lap, I'm the one who has to break a...

It will play any 2013/2014 game you throw at it at 1080p with decent-to-excellent framerate ; Cool keyboard backlights ; Cool fast-charger for phones via USB ; thin. thinner that most regular laptops, not just gaming ones ; fast as a bullet ; very...

Weird CTRL key problem ; not really meant for gaming on your lap ; non-standard keyboard key arrangement (who do they think they are, getting rid of the left Win key?) ; kills 120W power supplies (the stock one included)

I received this laptop as a gift from somewhere else, sadly. D: I recommend getting a cooling stand for this laptop, to help with cooling it, a cooling stand typically will reduce the temperatures by about 0°-5° C. I have yet to have either the gpu or...

860m and 12GB RAM ; Triple 1080p output ; 4 USB 3.0s (Though I bought a hub anyways) ; 45° exhaust (Exhaust isn't blowing on your hand) ; Amazingly thin and light ; Killer e2200 Ethernet ; Customizable keyboard ; i7 4710HQ 2.5 GHz ; Brushed aluminium ;...

Does run hot when under load (It's a laptop what do you expect) ; The keyboard does have some issues with the different types of LED modes u can have ; Trackpad is bad by default (Max out all the settings and you are good to go) ; Audio is pretty bad...

MSI GS70 Stealth Pro-212


Fast ; Large Screen ; Great Performance for OFFLINE gaming

Slowest Internet on the Planet! Expect high ping and latency issues, and very low download speeds under 10mpbs on a 105mpbs ips ; Terrible Performance for ONLINE Gaming ; Large Latop ; With the large bevel around the edge it's a lot wider than I expected
