Reviews for the MSI GS66 10SF-067 Stealth
Source: Ultrabook Review
For the most part, the MSI GS66 Stealth is a good laptop that should meet the design, ergonomics, performance, and battery life expectations of its potential buyers, but it's also affected by small imperfections and quirks. Many of those concern the system's performance and thermals in demanding loads, that's why I'd primarily look into the lower-tier i7 + RTX 2060/2070 configurations of this laptop, as versatile a work/school computer with only secondary gaming abilities. We're getting in-depth in the lengthy review down below.

The GS66 is a solid follow-up to MSI’s groundbreaking GS65 Stealth Thin. It’s more powerful in every way, it has a blazing fast 300Hz screen and it even has a decent keyboard and touchpad. But it’s heavier than before, and it doesn’t stand out nearly as much from the gaming laptop competition. Still, it’s a decent option if you’re looking for a premium gaming notebook without paying Razer prices.

MSI's GS66 Stealth is a solid followup to the GS65, one of our favorite gaming laptops. The new model packs Nvidia RTX graphics and Intel's new 10th gen chips in a sleek black chassis. But while there's nothing wrong with the GS66, it faces a much more competitive field. Razer's offerings cost more, but come in sleeker, more lightweight designs, and Asus's Zephyrus G14 is nearly as fast but cheaper, lighter, and with vastly superior battery life. We like the GS66, but these days, gaming laptops are so good it's worth shopping around.
