Reviews for the MSI Stealth 15M B12UE

73% MSI Stealth 15M review: Coasting on its good looks
Source: Engadget English
Ultimately, assuming you can stomach the short battery life, the value of the Stealth 15M hinges a lot on its price. I've seen this thing listed as high as $1,700 from retailers like Walmart, which is simply too much. At that point, you're much better off going for a notebook with a slightly smaller screen like the Alienware X14 and getting very similar performance, or opting for Asus' Zephyrous G14 while also saving a couple hundred bucks in the process. But if you can nab the Stealth for under $1,400, a lot of the system's trade-offs become a lot more palatable. I just wish this version of the Stealth felt more like James Bond and less like Agent Cody Banks.

50% MSI Stealth 15M Review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
The MSI Stealth 15M is a gaming laptop light enough to be carried around on a regular basis – which is a sound concept. However, that angle is undermined by poor battery life, and the weak colour saturation is difficult to justify even when you consider that the Stealth costs less than some of the biggest names in laptop gaming.
