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 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...

Verdict

 

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.

Blazingly Amazing

 

This machine is a beast. It does everything you could ever ask a pc to do and it handles it with extreme speed. Gaming is amazing on this laptop. This blows the Xbox One and PS4 clean out of the water in terms of graphics, framerate, and special...

Design, craftsmanship, and build quality. Top of the line components. Beautiful screen with great viewing angles. Very loud speakers with no distortion at all. One of the best keyboards I've ever seen or used, it really is a joy to type on. Very fast...

Touchpad is a bit janky, and way overly sensitive to palm touches while typing, but those issues are eliminated by updating the drivers and tweaking the settings to your liking ; This isn't really a true con, but I do not care for where the power cord...

Quality with flaws

 

I've always recommended MSI's internal components, but I cannot recommend an MSI laptop knowing their customer support is almost nonexistent. For $2000 I was expecting better support.

This laptop is FAST. For the price you're getting a lot of horse power. I cannot recommend the internals enough, chews through any game I've thrown at it so far with power to spare. The 3 ssd's in raid 0 make for roughly a boot time in the seconds...

I only have two cons and they are large enough to knock off 2 eggs. First issue is the keyboard. It sheds keys like a husky in heat. I've never dropped, damaged, or abused (It has lived the entirety of it's 2 month life on my desk) the laptop, yet I've...
