Reviews for the MSI GS70-2PEi71631

80% MSI GS70 Stealth Pro Gaming Laptop Review
Source: Techspot English
MSI's GS line consists of portable gaming notebooks with a focus on performance and portability. They're generally very slim, very sleek and lightweight compared to the GT series, MSI's most powerful (and big and heavy) line. But don't be fooled, as the top-of-the-line GS70 Stealth Pro is packed with the sort of hardware that'll likely put most desktops to shame. The MSI GS70 Stealth Pro isn't without fault - namely a flaky touchpad and poor battery life - but if you can overlook these few glaring issues and value a lean footprint, this system is more than capable of meeting the needs of pretty much anyone.

84% Slim gaming laptop punches above its weight
Source: CNet English
Especially compared to years of thick, bulky gaming laptops, the MSI GS70 Stealth stands out from the crowd with a slim body that at least won't cause your non-gamer friends to cringe. You'll pay a premium for the combination of thin design and high-end components, and it's a shame that you'll have to skip the current top-end card, the Nvidia 880M, to make it all work.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 870M: High-end graphics card from the GeForce GTX 800M series.

These graphics cards are able to play the latest and most demanding games in high resolutions and full detail settings with enabled Anti-Aliasing.

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  


4700HQ: Haswell-based quad-core processor clocked at 2.4 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.4 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4600 GPU and a dual channel DDR3 memory controller.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


17.3": Meanwhile the 17 inch display size is a more frequently offered standard format for desktop-replacements. The DTR-laptops can't be carried easily, need much energy but on the other side texts can be read easily and high resolutions are no problem. DTR mainly are intended for stationary usage on desks, where the weight and the energy need are unimportant.

2.6 kg: This notebook is lighter than the average of all notebooks. It is too heavy for sub-notebooks. 14 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.


MSI: Micro-Star International (MSI), is a Taiwan based computer hardware manufacturer since 1986 best known for desktop computer motherboards. MSI also designs and manufactures graphics cards, barebone PCs, notebook computers, networking products, servers, multimedia, consumer electronics, and storage devices. MSI, as most Taiwanese computer manufacturers, sells products on OEM/ODM basis. It also sells products worldwide based on its own brand name "MSI". The market share of laptops with the MSI brand is rather low.
