Today, MSI has revealed details about its new laptop line up with Intel's 8th generation processors. But perhaps the most interesting looking of the bunch would be its GS65 Stealth Thin, with its svelte design, unique look, and quite a bit of power under the hood.
According to MSI, the GS65 Stealth Thin is the first gaming laptop to feature a 1920 x 1080 16:9 144Hz 7ms wide-view display incorporating bezels that are just 4.9mm thin. This allows the laptop to achieve an 82 percent screen-to-body ratio, which is quite impressive. We have seen thin bezels on a laptop before, requiring the odd placement of the webcam, but MSI did not choose to make this sacrifice, instead, keeping just enough room on the top bezel so that the webcam can reside in its native position.
The laptop is powered by Intel's 8th generation Core i7 processor, 16GB DDR4 2400MHz RAM, 256GB SSD NVMe, and an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070. The firm chose to use a dark color scheme with gold accents to make it pop. According to MSI, the 82Wh battery provides in excess of eight hours of battery life and the laptop weighs in at 4.14lbs. It wouldn't be complete without an RGB LED keyboard by SteelSeries, allowing users to customize the look to their liking.
The GS65 Stealth Thin is now currently available for pre-order from Amazon and Newegg. The laptop starts at $1,799 and comes equipped with a GTX 1060 GPU. If you want to step up to a little more power with the GeForce GTX 1070, you're looking at $2,099.
