Reviews for the MSI Stealth 16 Studio A13VG, i7-13620H

70% MSI Stealth 16 Studio Review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
The MSI Stealth 16 Studio (2023) is a mix of highs and lows; the QHD display is fantastically immersive, providing me with clear and crisp visuals while streaming media content and playing games. The vast array of ports meant I never had to reach for a dongle and the loud and punchy speakers allowed me to forgo any gaming headsets or external speakers. However, the performance of the Stealth 16 Studio did leave something to be desired. Lagging and slow loading times while browsing the web made this laptop feel much slower than it should, especially when you consider the above £2000/$2000 asking price. That’s not to say that it can’t run triple-A games at a reliable frame rate, but you’re likely to incur some stuttering along the way. If you’re looking for something that strikes a great balance between portability and performance then the Asus ROG Zephyrus G14 (2023) is one of the best options out there, and the Asus TUF Gaming A15 is a fantastic choice if you want to save some money. For even more options, take a look at our best gaming laptop roundup.

17.30": This display size is a standard format for desktop replacements (DTR). The DTR laptops are heavier to carry, need more power, but texts are easy to read and high resolutions are no problem. DTR are mainly intended for stationary desk use, where weight and energy hunger don't matter. In return, you enjoy the advantages of high resolutions (more details, better legibility).» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.8 kg:

With this weight, a laptop is rather heavier than average. Devices in this range shine more with screen size and performance than with mobility.


MSI: Micro-Star International (MSI) was founded in 1986 in Taiwan. MSI is especially known as a manufacturer of motherboards and graphics cards for PCs, but also offers computer accessories, complete systems, motherboards, graphics cards, laptops, desktop PCs, monitors and other components.

70%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
