Once NVIDIA unveiled its GTX 10 lineup for notebooks, we knew it wouldn't be long before companies unveiled laptops packing the hardware. MSI is now first on that list with a slew of new gaming laptops, including its incredibly slim and powerful new "Stealth" laptops.
Coming in several configurations, MSI's Stealth laptops (opens in new tab) pack NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 1060 graphics. The Stealth Pro, MSI claims, is the world's thinnest 15-inch laptop, coming in at just 17.7mm in height and weighing 1.9kg. Meanwhile, the GS73VR Stealth carries a 17-inch 4K display.
The laptops carry a sleek brushed metal design, and MSI is looking to keep things quiet with its cooling solutions. Also included are gaming keyboards from SteelSeries, a respected gaming brand in its own right, as well as HiFi audio courtesy of an ESS SABRE DAC.
If you're looking for other options, MSI has a ton of other offerings at both the higher and lower ends of the spectrum as well, including the GT73VR Titan SLI (opens in new tab), which can carry either two GTX 1070 graphics cards or a single GTX 1080. There's also the GS43VR Phantom, with GTX 1060 graphics and a 14-inch HD display for those who prefer a smaller screen.
In all, MSI's new lineup includes 11 new laptops, all packing NVIDIA's new GTX 10-series cards across the board. That's an impressive amount of choice, and should leave room for anyone to find something they like — even VR fans.

That 15-inch MSI Stealth Pro looks fantastic. First non-goofy gaming laptop since Razer that I would consider. Also, matte FHD for the win.
I was originally turned off by the multi color keyboard but learned you can change all the zones to be one color or turn them off. Recently bought the MSI GT72S and it's phenomenal.
I was very excited as well, I currently have an MSI Ghost Pro 15.6" with a GTX870m that I'm looking to replace. However, one of the more exciting new technologies G-Sync is not on the Stealth Pro models, pretty much ensuring I will not buy one. Plus if I'm stepping into a new laptop I want to get at least the 1070, so either I will look for something fairly portable or wait for the next generation. Gigabyte has a great laptop coming but it also lacks G-Sync so that means I have to look into their Aorus line, or I could go back to a Sager notebook.
How did they manage to make that laptop so thin :O
Wheree are the components?
BTW MSI is a really good brand. I'm typing this on a more than 6 year old classic model (I bought it around 5-6 years ago, and who knows when it got released), and it's still running W10 and World of Warcraft quite nice!
Glad to here... Just bought an MSI motherboard (X99A SLI PLUS) for my new gaming rig... It's my first MSI and I haven't put the pc together yet.
