The MSI GS70 Stealth is a light gaming laptop that packs a punch

 

The MSI GS70 is one of the thinnest and lightest full-power 17-inch gaming laptops we've tested.

The MSI GS70 Stealth looks great, for a gaming laptop, and combines powerful hardware and a generous HDD/SSD combo into a slim body.

Gaming performance is a step down from the very top of the line, despite the high price. The lack of a touch screen makes it harder to use as an everyday Windows 8 laptop. Despite loud fans, the GS70 gets very hot when gaming.

Making small performance trade-offs to fit into a slim, attractive 17-inch body, the MSI GS70 Stealth is a gaming laptop for those who hate the look of gaming laptops.

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.

Conclusion The MSI GS70 Stealth (GS70 2OD-002US) demonstrates just how far the ultraportable gaming scene has come along since the Razer Blade (2012) first brought an ultraportable design to gaming machines. The portability and battery life is...

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 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 marries 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. If you want a machine that's powerful and portable - and you have £1,679 - the MSI...

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...

MSI GS70

 

MSI delivers a 17-inch Haswell gamer in a fraction of the size of most gaming laptops.

Lightweight for a 17-incher. Very slim lines. Solid performance.

Entry-level GPU. No optical drive.

The GS70 shaves a few dollars off by compromising on GPU performance. Whether that's a problem depends on just how much eye candy you crave.

Samsung N230 review

 

A smart, thin netbook with an outstanding battery life, but the dull screen lets the side down, and there are other, better netbooks that cost less.

We didn't expect much from its benchmark results, and its score of 16 overall is fairly representative of netbooks. The Intel Atom N450 is a single-core processor, but supports Intel's Hyper-Threading technology which creates a virtual second core....

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.
