These days the question with gaming laptops isn't how low you can go, but how thin. The $1,999 MSI GS70 offers good overall performance, solid battery life, and a lovely 1080p display in a svelte design. However, some beefier rigs outclass this one in terms of graphics and audio performance. ... While it's debatable that any 17-inch notebook should be considered portable, gamers or creative professionals who want a notebook that's both powerful and won't break their back (or wallet) will find the MSI GS70 a solid choice. quote

The MSI GS70 marries style and substance: plenty of power and a great screen crammed inside a chassis that's thinner, lighter and better-looking than most of its rivals. If you want a machine that's powerful and portable - and you have £1,679 - the MSI GS70 is a contender.

While you’re getting a relatively portable notebook with a large screen that’s also pretty powerful, you’re also getting the heat and the noise that comes with it.

Can you have your cake and eat it, too? Only half as thick and two-thirds the weight of most 17-inch gaming laptops, the sleek MSI GS70 Stealth is an appealing choice—as long as you don't expect it to set speed records.

Combined with excellent built quality, a reasonable screen and backlit keyboard and a specification that's more than up to 1080p gaming, the MSI GS70 2QE Stealth Pro is a solid choice for a 17in gaming laptop.

Overall, we're impressed with the MSI GS70 2QE Stealth Pro. It's supremely powerful thanks to Nvidia's latest graphics chip but manages to maintain its elegance with its slim and relatively light chassis.

The GS70 Stealth is a 17-inch gamer's machine, and by most indications, it's designed to go head to head with Razer's Blade lineup. At 3.9kg (8.6 pounds) it's reasonably light for a system with this screen size, and with an all-aluminum chassis, it has a more premium feel than other MSI machines.

I've had my MSI GS70 for a few weeks now and I'm very impressed with it so far. It plays all the latest games, at high res, with high framerates, although only on medium settings. The screen is excellent, as is the keyboard, but the trackpad could use a little work. The battery life is good, if...

I have a desktop gaming system that has a Microsoft rating of 7.8, which is one point below their top rating, and this system has impressed me for a laptop. I mainly play WoW and can play with all of my addons (65) at maxed out settings with no lag whatsoever. I have played 1080p movies through...
