Bottom Line

Light and thin, the MSI GS72 Stealth-42 offers a desktop gaming experience in a highly mobile design. The only thing holding it back its mobility is its poor battery life.

The MSI GS72 Stealth-42 is a light and thin laptop that has been packed with powerful hardware for a gamers on the move. The Skylake Core i7 processor and the mid-range NVIDIA GTX965M offer enough power for gamers to enjoy current titles on medium to high graphics, while retaining higher frame rates. The only major issue with this thin and light laptop is that the battery life rather poor and majorly limits the time that the laptop can work to its full potential.
