MSI GS70-2PEi71611 Notebook Review

Notebookcheck
30 June 2014
  • Summary: Wickedly hot. Most gaming machines are fast, but also heavy and bulky. MSI thinks that unnecessary, and presents us the thinnest and lightest 17-inch laptop in the world, according to its advertisement. A quick look at the specs nurtures doubts: Has the manufacturer managed to keep temperature and noise development under control?
  • Pros: Lightweight for a gaming laptop..., ...and thin, Pleasing design, Decent build, Many interfaces, Spectacular keyboard back light, Keyboard's extensive configuration options, Good touchpad, Sharp, bright screen, Good contrast, Fast enough for all games in high settings, Laptop sleeve included, The keyboard lets gamers' hearts leap for joy.
  • Cons: Not perfectly stiff plastic casing, Power socket's very unfavorable position, Viewing angle unstable screen, Incorrect color reproduction, bluish cast, Loud..., ...and much too hot during load, GPU throttling, CPU Turbos are not fully used, Only middling sound despite Dynaudio Soundbar, Battery is secured with screws, No recovery media, A sound that matches the price range would be nice.

MSI GS70 Stealth Pro Review

LAPTOP Magazine
28 May 2014
  • Summary: 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 successful pairing of portability and power. In addition, the notebook offers a blistering SSD, a matte 1080p display and software to record your best moves.

Expert Review

ComputerShopper
29 January 2014
  • Conclusion: 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 above-average portability along with their entertainment, rather than a killer rig for hardcore gamers.
  • Pros: Slim design, Relatively light weight, Great display
  • Cons: Runs hot, Mediocre Webcam, Power cord placement interferes with mousing

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

CNET
10 January 2014
  • Summary: 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.
  • Pros: The MSI GS70 Stealth looks great, for a gaming laptop, and combines powerful hardware and a generous HDD/SSD combo into a slim body.
  • Cons: 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.

Review MSI GS70-65M21621 Notebook

Notebookcheck
25 September 2013
  • Summary: 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 dimensions. But was the diet successful?
  • Pros: 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, Besides the keyboard illumination we are also convinced by the performance.
  • Cons: Very high temperatures, High idle noise, Considering the high price, the build quality could be better.

MSI GS70 Review

LAPTOP Magazine
26 August 2013
  • Summary: These days the question with gaming laptops isn't how low you can go, but how thin. The $1,999 MSI GS70 offers good overall performance, solid battery life, and a lovely 1080p display in a svelte design. However, some beefier rigs outclass this one in terms of graphics and audio performance.
