Bottom Line

The MSI MSI GS63VR STEALTH PRO is a thin and light gaming laptop that still manages to offer powerful hardware for the gamer on the go. However the sound is not the greatest and the price is a bit steep for some.


The MSI GS63VR STEALTH PRO-229 is a bestselling MSI gaming laptop that has been praised for its Kaby Lake processor, thin and light design, GTX 1060 graphics, ample storage space and for its large amount of RAM. However the placement of the power button will annoy some users and you will have to change the settings in windows to prevent it going to sleep every time you bump the button. The audio quality is also not the best, however it is not terrible and you can always use a good pair of headphones or speakers while gaming.

    The MSI GS63VR Stealth is the first laptop I’ve seen using Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 1060, and I’m suitably impressed. In fact, I’m blown away by the amount of performance that can be squeezed into a laptop that’s actually portable.

    Thanks to the new Pascal GPU, MSI now packs high-end performance into a slim laptop. The temperature development is okay and other areas of the GS63VR Stealth Pro are convincing as well, but MSI should have another look at the fans.
