When it comes to design, the Stealth Pro is a master. Somehow, and I’m not sure how, MSI managed to take their powerful components and fit it in a 4.2 pound case that measures 14.9 x 9.8 x 0.69-inches. Comparing it with the other gaming laptops on the market, this is one of the slimmest 15-inch gaming laptops out there.
However, the Stealth Pro is more than just a slim chassis, it’s a hot little minx. Seriously, take a look at the laptop’s black, brush aluminium lid – it’ll gleam with anticipation as you run your fingers across it. It’s very pretty, so when you first see it, you’ll probably want to touch it. The inky metal, however, will reveal your fingerprints. So, instead of touching it and putting your oils all over it, you should just admire it.
Speaking in admiring the laptop, you’ll be mesmerized over the red and white backlit dragon emblem that is nesting on the center of the lid and running along the rear vents, you’ll find some pretty cool fine red accents.

The display in the Stealth Pro isn’t that bad at all – the 1920 x 1080 pixels matte display will be begging for your attention. The 15.6-inch panel will flash gorgeous vivid colors right before your eyes, especially when it comes to the color red. As I was watching a trailer, my eyes were drawn to the color red.
During The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, I noticed someone heading downstream through water that was waist-deep. In the water, there were minuscule ripples. When the water was deep enough, the character dived down, and the hair looked amazing.
The Steal Pro’s vividness is truly mesmerizing – this mostly comes from the ability to reproduce around 111 percent of the sRGB color gamut and as you may already know, that is way better than the 90 percent that you would normally find.
The brightness test averaged out at 242 nits – it missed the 264-nit mark, but that is okay. It is still better than most of the gaming laptops out there – look at the Alienware 15, for example, it comes to 222 nits.
In terms of audio, this laptop comes with Nahimic 2 software that offers a variety of presets. For gaming, you have Shooter, Role Play, Racing and Strategy. The multimedia settings include movies and Music. The app has some other cool features that will help you get the upper-cut on your gaming foes. For example, the Sound Tracker is capable of pointing out your enemies’ locations based on where the sound is coming from. It also has an Audio Launchpad, which will allow you to map sound effects to your keyboard shortcuts.
Currently, at the time of writing this review, the Stealth Pro is one of the slimmest gaming notebooks on the market that is VR-capable. This is due to its Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 GPU (a total of 6GB of VRAM). During the SteamVR Performance test, the laptop hit 7.4.
The Nvidia Pascal also gave a pretty good boost to traditional games, such as Witcher 3. Being surrounded by wild dogs, rolling away from the beasts, switching between fire spells and sword spells, you can still maintain an average 42 fps with the settings on ultra. Knocking the settings down a notch, to high will increase the fps to a good solid 56.
Under the belt, you’ll find a 2.6-GHz Intel Core i7-6700HQ processor with a total of 16GB of RAM – this is pretty good. Apart from gaming, the performance in this gaming laptop is nothing short of excellent and that’s a big plus.
