Review MSI GS70-65M21621 Notebook


Thin gamer. Imagine the MSI GE70, slightly tweak the case, use the identical hardware and you will get the GS70 Stealth. The new gaming notebook is especially interesting for mobile gaming because the manufacturer reduced both the weight and the...

Matte and bright display ; Full HD with high contrast ratio ; Colored keyboard illumination ; Good gaming performance ; Quite light for a gaming notebook ; Insanely fast SSD RAID system

Very high temperatures ; High idle noise

The GS70 is very light for a gaming notebook and easy to transport

MSI GS70 Stealth Pro


The MSI GS70 Stealth Pro is a svelte 17-inch gaming laptop that pairs a fast Core i7 processor with a powerful Nvidia 800 GPU.

Slim and elegant chassis; Extremely portable; Blazing SSD; Solid battery life; Vibrant 1080p display

Runs hot while gaming; Display colors not as accurate as competition

Once again, MSI has proven that a powerful notebook doesn't necessarily have to be a hulking behemoth. The $2,099 GS70 Stealth Pro houses a Core i7 processor and an Nvidia GeForce GTX 870M processor in a 0.85-inch-thick chassis. It's a highly...

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 Review


The MSI GS70 crams a fourth-gen Core i7 CPU, Nvidia GTX graphics and a 17.3-inch 1080p display into an extremely slim chassis.

Slim, elegant chassis; Extremely portable; Good overall performance; Solid battery life; Vibrant 1080p display

Weak audio; Runs hot while gaming

Slim design, Relatively light weight, Great display

Runs hot, Mediocre Webcam, Power cord placement interferes with mousing

The Stealth has some gaming chops, too, as our experience with BioShock Infinite shows; you just shouldn't expect it to blow away bigger and heavier gaming laptops. Think of it as the 17-inch version of MSI's 14-inch GE40—a notebook for users who want...

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

Scores The MSI GS70 Stealth breaks away from familiar desktop replacement conventions: instead of being bulky, heavy and ugly, it's little thicker than an Ultrabook and half the weight of some rivals - and it's one of the best-looking laptops we've...

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...
