Pros

  • Beautiful design
  • Barely noticable bezel
  • Gorgeous display quality

  • Fast NVMe SSD

Cons

Bottom Line

The MSI GS65 Stealth THIN-051 gaming laptop is a top of the line gaming laptop that features a lot of the latest technologies, including a six core Intel processor and a Max-Q GPU, but it suffers from heating issues, a problem we so commonly see with ultra thin gaming laptops.


MSI’s GS65 Stealth THIN-051 15.6-inch gaming laptop has received positive reviews for its attractive design that is both subtle in its looks and incredibly portable due to its weight and thickness. It sports premium components, including the hexacore Coffee Lake i7-8750H, 16GB of RAM, a fast NVMe solid state drive, and the incredibly capable Nvidia GTX 1070 with Max-Q technology. The gorgeous flat 144Hz Full-HD display received plenty of praise, along with its ultra thin bezel. Furthermore, it has a pretty solid battery life for a gaming laptop. However, like most thin gaming laptops that pack a lot of power, it runs hot while gaming. The speaker quality is also said to be poor. While the SSD is fast, 256GB of storage can be limiting for serious gamers. The MSI GS65 Stealth THIN-051 gaming laptop is a beautifully designed laptop packed an efficient GPU and a hexacore CPU that easily outperforms the competitors.

    Of course, the main driver behind the purchase of a gaming laptop is how it performs when the going gets rough. The H-series Intel Core i7 processor, paired with that Nvidia Max-Q GTX 1070, make quick work of everything we throw at the GS65 Stealth.
