Pros

  • Powerful
  • Portable
  • Colourful

Cons

  • Mediocre audio
  • Can't play games at 4K

Bottom Line

You can finally have your portability and your performance at the same time. But it may be worth choosing the 1080p model to save money as the 1060 can't quite manage 4K gaming.

Would you buy this?

Conclusion

Despite its drawbacks, I’m still blown away by what the MSI GS63VR Stealth Pro 4K delivers — a 1.8KG laptop that can play the newest games with settings at or near Ultra. That’s just a tectonic shift of portable gaming capability we’ve just never seen before.

Previously, the best GPU we could expect in a laptop this thin was Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 970M. The GTX 1060 in the Stealth is at least 50 percent faster than that. That means that with the MSI GS63VR Stealth, you can finally have your portability and your performance at the same time.
