    Just don’t buy used from Amazon. They shipped it without the original packaging and it was put in a box too small with no shipping protection. Needless to say it was damaged on arrival. I returned it and just bought it new and I love this computer.

    I bought this MSI Stealth 15M on September 12,2021. When I received the laptop, everything was amazing. Here are pros and cons.

    PRO:
    - Can run games such as COD, VAL, CYBERPUNK
    - LIGHTWEIGHT
    - LOTS OF STORAGE 450+ GB
    - DECENT PRESENTATION.
    - LONG LASTING

    CON:
    - fan is very VERY LOUD especially on cooler boost mode.
    - CPU has trouble staying at a low temp, never goes pass 90 F but gets at a warm temperature.
    - GPU gets at a warm temperature, but never burns out.
    - Sometimes has a message saying "your PC has run into a problem" (only had it twice but still a concern)

    Aside from cons, I would recommend this computer for gaming start, a cheap laptop instead of a 10,000 dollar Desktop.

    This is a very nice and fast little laptop. I'll admit I didn't buy this for gaming. I bought this as an upgrade to my 7 year old laptop. I was going to go with an Alienware laptop I saw, but this one was quite a bit cheaper with a newer processor. I dont know much about computers, but this little guy starts up and is ready in seconds. My old laptop took almost 10 minutes to figure out what it was doing. Web pages and docs are pulled up in a second and basic functions are very fast. I like how I can change performance based on what I'm doing bit havent used that feature since it's so fast out of the box. It took a very short time to get set up and registered. I honestly couldn't be happier. I saw some mixed reviews on it and took a chance. I personally am not dissapointed. It may not operate as fast for other with more experience or as a gaming computer, but this works perfectly for my day to day operations. Very happy trying a new product and will probably be back for a second desktop at some point.

    At first we were excited.. the computer loaded and booted quickly.. Shortly after loading Rust we noticed the Computer overheats quickly with very loud fans that don't seem to help at all. Within 2 days the Mouse pad stopped working.. rust started to lag ... escape from tarkov started to lag also. The computer would not last without being connected to the charger constantly. For $1300.00..... no working mousepad.... can't shoot or move at the same time with a mouse and we've tried multiple.... computer can't hold a charge.... games lagging.... Over heats easily... this computer is a crying mess.

    Having used this for about 2 weeks now, it's perfect for 1080p gaming. Which fits the included screen. Plays most modern games above 70fps at high settings, but the fans are L O U D.
    Fans ramp up with pretty much everything you do, but it's just something to accept with such a thin system; hot air has to go somewhere.

    Get a good laptop cooling pad for it and enjoy the system. Worth the buy.

    My old laptop decided enough was enough after 12 years of loyal service - replaced it with this unit based on specifications I need for virtualization (I used 3 or 4 different OS's in my job). Really not too bothered about the gaming specifications as I only play Civilization III and you can run that on printer memory its so small. The laptop is very sleek, very lightweight and easy on the eye. The fans can get a little noisy, especially when I have 2 virtual machines running simultaneously - but I accept the noise knowing that the laptop is going to last - always a trade off for something. I went the extra mile and wrote to the manufacturers asking the maximum wattage for their lighting port - 100 watts if you want to know - so i purchased a 12 way hub and a 100W power supply so I can travel lightly and leave my desk hub behind with a single hookup cable (type c) as needed. All in all, happy with my purchase

    I just wanted a laptop that could play games on the highest settings and that’s what I got, a few caveats though:

    It runs really hot, it gets hot to the touch almost always and had to go on a google safari to figure out how to make it run cooler (basically hidden bios settings and changing power management options, throttlestop and Intel app won’t work)
    Battery life is terrible, it lasts for about 45 minutes before it drops to 20%...it could last longer? If I lowered the settings (changing battery options to power saver and turning off turbo mode) but that would defeat the purpose of spending so much for a high end laptop
    I’ve also been given a replacement thinking that there was something wrong with the laptop but testing the replacement alongside my first one...it seems that all of this is intended.

    I’ve also noticed there is some sort of lottery involving screen quality and fan speed. First laptop had fans that could go up to 6400rpm, replacement top speed is 5200rpm, the replacement also had a “stage lighting” problem where if you use a dark/black background, you could see bright light shine from the bottom of the display.

    Other than that, handles games really well, no lag and can handle the highest graphics settings without crashing. Overall, very cool.

    A One Month Review

    REASON FOR PURCHASE - I purchased this laptop because my Dell XPS 8100 desktop kept freezing/restarting several times a day. A fresh clean re-install of Windows 10 was not remedying the situation, and I had no desire to troubleshoot every component to see what was the underlying problem. Overall, this issue was seriously affecting my productivity, as well as sanity.

    POTENTIAL ALTERNATIVES - I was mainly looking for a desktop replacement - not a laptop. I checked Dell, Amazon, BestBuy, as well as other 'PC build' websites such as 'ibuypower', but found prices too high overall. Basically, the price was the driving factor for me in purchasing this laptop. The final price was slightly under $1,300 w/ taxes, and I found that to be a fair price for performance ratio.

    MUST HAVES - Since this was my first PC replacement in nearly 10-years, I wanted to make sure I got a 11th Gen i7 Intel processor, as well as an RTX 3000 series graphics card. I was looking for a RTX 3060ti minimum, but I could not find a match within my budget.

    PREVIOUS HARDWARE - My Dell XPS 8100 was still using the 1st Gen i5 650 processor, with a PNY GTX 970 updated graphics card. I honestly would have gone another year or two before changing my PC, if these freezing problems were not there.

    FIRST IMPRESSIONS - Seems well built - I also liked the keyboard lighting. Chassis seems solid, and I liked all the available ports on the sides. The design was appealing, being perfectly rectangle with the lid closed - no protruding sections to put the shape out of balance.

    HOW IT IS USED - I use this laptop as a desktop replacement - I only open the screen lid to power it on. Otherwise, I use an external monitor and keyboard.

    HOW OFTEN USED - I keep this laptop on for at least 8-hours a day. It was purchased roughly a month ago, so it's been used rather frequently.

    GAMING (@ 1080p only) - It is a notable upgrade from my Dell. Previously in games like WoW or FFXIV, I was getting under 60 FPS frequently in crowded areas. Now, I get dizzy by how quickly the screen rotates in-game, forcing me to lower the mouse-sensitivity. In WoW, I am constantly at 100 FPS with the occasional dips to 90 FPS. I'm also currently playing Ubisoft's 'The Division', but the max I can get is 60 FPS with regular dips to 47 FPS @ medium settings. Not killer performance, but a huge upgrade nevertheless.

    FAN NOISE - For everyday non-gaming use (i.e., web browsing), it is a low hum you can only hear if you're within 20-inches to the laptop. When gaming, it can ramp up to a constant loud whirl.

    HEAT - Similarly to fan noise, heat is negligible for non-gaming use. For gaming, it can get warm over time, but I use this product: 'Zimilar Monitor Stand Riser', to keep it propped up for heat dissipation. It seems to work well in keeping this laptop cool.

    STORAGE - It only comes with one 512GB M.2 device, so storage for my gaming needs is very limited. I looked at YouTube videos to see if it can be upgraded, but it honestly looked like a PITA to do so. So, I have invested in external SSD solutions for space.

    WIFI – My router is roughly 25-feet away (through walls), but I get consistent download/upload speeds with the occasional dip. No major connection loss or issues otherwise.

    BLOATWARE - It comes with a lot of MSi propriety software, as well as Norton Security Suite. Also, a trial version of Microsoft Office 365. I spent a good amount of time sorting through, and uninstalling a lot of them.

    BATTERY - I've only tested it off the plug once. Even without gaming, it was eating through the battery pretty quickly. I surmise it'd only go about 3-hours before draining out. This laptop is definitely not recommended if longevity off the plug is a priority of yours.

    PROBLEMS – The only ‘issue’ I’ve come across is if I’ve gamed for a long period of time, or I’ve been moving large files around. The performance of the laptop may drop significantly. I remedy this by a simple reboot, which clears up the issue. Also to note, this laptop has not frozen on me once.

    CONCLUSION - When I purchased this laptop, I considered it an intermediary, until I gathered the necessary funds to invest in a desktop with a minimum of RTX 3070. However, it has proven to be a mini-powerhouse. I don't play above 1080p, and I can live with medium-settings if performance seems to dip. It performs excellently on non-gaming tasks, and I now have a mobile gaming platform if I want to take it to a friend's house. All-in-all, I am quite satisfied with my purchase, and may now wait until the RTX 4000 series come out before I consider a desktop.

    Overall, highly recommended for purchase.

    The laptop is designed very well. I REALLY LOVE HOW they make it. It looks like an XPS15 for gamer. The graphic card, CPU, and Ram are good enough to play heavy game. You can also can upgrade the Ram. However, it's easy to get hot if you play game on laptop outdoors without A/C.

    Since my job isn't as demanding this time of year, I needed something to keep me busy from the boredom. This laptop is perfect! I'm able to play all the games from my Steam library as if I were on my desktop. To be fair, almost all of my games can be played at 30fps on my old desktop with 1030. Power-wise, it does blow heavy but when you have a loud A/C in the building its hardly noticable. Definitely worth the money.

    The MSI Stealth 15M balances portability and pure power. The laptop is really light for a gaming laptop, being under 4 pounds yet it has a RTX 3060 inside. For being such a thin laptop, the keyboard surprisingly remains at a comfortable temperature while playing AAA games. The laptop also comes with a thunderbolt port which is a nice bonus. If you're gaming while plugged in, make sure to change power mode to best performance and if you want a further boost in performance, you change the User Scenario in the Dragon Center software to Extreme Performance. You can also activate the Cooler Boost if you don't mind more fan noise.
    The screen runs at 144 Hz but needs a little bit of color calibration out of the box. This is a minor issue that can be fixed through software.
    Overall, this laptop is a great choice if you value portability but don't want to compromise on hardware specs. Thanks MSI and Amazon!

    Haven't done much gaming but seems to do decent. Can't expect much from a RTX 3060. I can play at at least medium settings with most games with over 60fps. Battery life though different story. Playing games or not, seems to just drain with any application. Definitely use battery saver. Design though is incredibly nice. Bring a cloth of some sorts if you worry about smudges. Doesn't smudge easily but when it does, it a little bit of a pain to clean it off. For a $1300 gaming laptop, not bad especially with prices of all electronics.

    As someone with a disability this is the gaming laptop I have dreamed of. Its lightweight, its durable, it performs like a dream! It runs a little hot with the more performance demanding games but I have a laptop cooling lap pad that also helps elevate my laptop on my desk. With that there's absolutely no problems with temperature control! Even when resting directly on my desk it never gets so hot that I feel concerned.

    Its no where near as noisy as any other laptop I've used even when its fans are going. Crisp sound just on the laptop itself. Gorgeous definition of picture. I love it!

    Esta laptop para juegos es una de las mejores compras que he hecho nunca, la calidad de la pantalla es excelente, es muy fluida y funciona sin problemas. En cuanto a todas las laptops para juegos, tienden a calentarse, así que asegúrate una almohadilla de refrigeración y actualiza tus controladores. Dragon Center es increíble, MSI realmente ofrece un trabajo de calidad, recomiendo encarecidamente este producto a cualquiera. La duración de la batería se puede ajustar pero desenchufar y, dependiendo de lo que estés haciendo, tendrás una cantidad decente de tiempo de juego o si estás haciendo trabajo, tareas escolares, etc. En general, esta sigue siendo una gran compra, definitivamente necesito comprar mi PC después de esto.

    I've owned 3 laptops and 2 custom built PC's, and I've gotta say that so far this is my favorite computer I've owned to date. I'm downsizing from a 17inch HP Omen gaming laptop (that weighed 10 pounds) but it is in no way a downgrade. I bought this mainly because it's lightweight, portable, has a long battery life, and can put out when it comes to gaming (high to ultra graphics on AAA @ 1080p). In addition to using it for gaming, I also teach high schoolers. Using it in the classroom will be a breeze BECAUSE OF HOW LIGHT AND PORTABLE IT IS. Also it has an HDMI port for hooking up to your projector, and 3 regular usb ports for your powerpoint clicker, mouse and USB all at the same time (also has 2 USB-C connections). No joke, I'm in love with this thing mainly because I've never had a laptop this light and I'm excited to take it everywhere with me without killing my back.

    I play Call of Duty Warzone and it's resource intensive. I've got most of my settings turned up and I'm getting 100-120 frames. Perfectly acceptable, it's 1080P but the game isn't pretty anyway. I'm traveling and needed a mobile option and this was better than an Xbox. It's not better than my gaming PC at home, but my gaming PC was 3 times the cost. I've run into a few strange glitches with sound card, but overall it's as solid as any other Windows laptop. Buy this if: You need a mobile desktop computer that can game. It's huge, heavy you can't game with it on your lap. I would never select this as my laptop for non-gaming. Don't buy this if: You need a fast laptop for school, work. Any reason other than gaming and the negatives will not outweigh the positives. I would never carry this with me daily. I literally flew with this thousands of miles, parked it on a desk for gaming. Normally I use a Macbook air for work/personal. It's a tool, buy the right tool for the job.

    It worked great after a repartioning and reinstalling windows. The battery is kinda low but otherwise it's a solid laptop for the price

    I purchased this laptop for gaming while on work trips as well as doing some web and application development on the go. This laptops perfect for this. It’s not overwhelmingly large and still holds the styling of a standard ultra book, but with way more power. Boots instantly, applications load quickly and never lag. With 16 gigs of RAM not even Google Chrome can get the fans to turn on. Highly recommend

    Been using this gaming laptop for almost a month and found some weird quirks that could potentially be a deal breaker for some but nothing to worry about for others.

    Pros:
    - lightweight
    - 3060 graphics card
    - thunderbolt 4
    - 144 htz display
    - low key
    - decent I/O (hdmi, 2x usb c, 2 usb a, headphone jack, microsd slot)

    Cons:
    - small battery
    - poorly designed keyboard
    - no biometrics sensor for login
    - no extra M.2 Slot for storage expansion
    - Will be very difficult to upgrade RAM

    Here are some quirks I have noted while using the laptop.

    Noted Quirks:
    - SHIFT+C+[any keys on right side] are not registering (I think this might be a hardware defect on my laptop but was not serious enough that requires me to return the laptop for a replacement)
    - | key is duplicated on keyboard (not sure which MSI engineer thought this was a good idea....)
    - because of the duplicated | key, the FN key and CTRL key on the right side is split in half...
    - hdmi and thunderbolt 4 uses intel graphics and the other usb c port uses rtx graphics

    Summary: Regardless of the cons and weird quirks noted. I really like this laptop due to its weight and very low profile look. Unless someone knows about the MSI stealth series, most people will not realize that this is a gaming laptop. This makes it a great work/game laptop! I 100% recommend buying a 100W USB C charging brick and a thunderbolt 4 cable when going to work with this laptop. I am not sure if a 100W charging brick can provide enough power for gaming, however, it is definitely enough to keep the laptop charged while working on it.

    Arrived quickly and neatly packaged. Has been nothing but good and I can’t list a true con about the machine.

    Turn the settings to extreme performance and run almost any title at 100fps with DLSS and Reflex.

    Only regret is trying to decide between laptops for a week and not buying this sooner.

    From looking around you can’t find any PC with a RTX30 series card for $1500.

    Not gonna lie, super impressed with this laptop. Was considering an HP Spectre or Galaxy Book Pro, but stumbled across this on here of all places. It had everything i was looking for & more than what I even realized.

    Presentation in box was nice. Like how it is packaged in a dust sleeve & even has a dust sleeve in-between screen & keyboard. Major plus mark for that alone.

    Upon booting first time & getting initially set up, enjoyed how nice the screen is. IPS is the way to go, ngl. Keyboard light & RGB options are a major upgrade for my use. Selection of apps & programs from the get go are too numerous to mention, but is nice to have plenty of options. After removing what didn't interest me, proceeded with updates, as you should with any device.

    This thing seems like Sonic... GOTTA GO FAST!

    Dragon Center App has tons of various tweaks & options for things like Keyboard RGB light, Power/ Battery, Performance, etc. Definite plus for that alone. Some people can't stand it, so I'll leave that up to particular preference.

    Yes, the fans can he EXTREMELY NOISY... BUT for my particular usage & wants in a laptop, quite a fair trade off. Only way they get THAT noisy, is if you select extreme performance/ cooler boost. A good pair of headphones would drown that noise.

    Another surprise, is that you can run android games either through The appropriate MSI app or even Bluestacks... was not aware of when I decided to purchase, but cool nonetheless. I would say remove the MSI App Player & just use true Bluestacks, if you want to mess with Amdroid emulation

    With this, I plan on investing in Steam, finally. Not to mention, can't wait to see what this thing can handle, emulation-wise (Can't wait to try Stepmania on this). [Edit/ Update 9/7/21 -Stepmania runs just like arcade Dance Dance Revolution on MAX graphical program settings. Just a little side note, SOME games that have a max refresh rate of 60hz may have graphical issues... I'm specifically mentioning Sonic Adventure & Adcenture 2 for PC being OVERLY FAST. There are workarounds to get said games working perfectly.]

    Build seems solid. Got the Gray version & am not disappointed at all by my choice. It has a nice blue tinit to it.

    [Update 9/7/21- Dont expect to get a ton of battery use out of this thing. Setting battery saver settings via windows & dragon center to as max as possible & lowering screen brightness might get 6 to 8 hours of battery life, with just normal, no gaming computer use. Thankfully you can calibrate battery when needed to extend the service life of it.] [Another note: if you run demanding thinga in this, it will get hot to hold. My suggestion, buy a GOOD laptop stand with fan cooling. I would suggedt KLIM Ultimate RGB for if you are a gamer that plays less demaning games. Binding of Isaac, Emulation, etc. Said cooler would probably be good for some demanding games too, with Cooler Boost function turned on to help get some extra airflow]

    This may be The best "budget" gaming laptop out there atm. Got the 512 GB Model with 16 GB ram & the RTX 3060. Going to eventually go overkill with max ram & a 2 tb Samsung SSD. Can't wait to see what this thing can unleash then... but for now, happy camper!

    Overall it’s a good laptop but there’s a few things I need to know I chose this because it was the best option for me but for most people if you really care about the specs you will know that this is a i7 with only four cores and 8 threads. So in a way this is like a underpowered i7 which is fine considering how thin this laptop is. After putting all the drivers up-to-date and doing all the windows updates it runs perfectly smooth.

    As an upcoming college student who enjoys to play games but still needs a laptop to study on, I found that this laptop is exceedingly capable of doing both. Take this review with a grain of salt however as I am not really knowledgeable of the exact specs of the laptop and what the technical terms necessarily means. But what I know for sure is that this laptop is great for a combination of studying and gaming as 15.6' screen is the perfect balance between gaming laptop and a Chromebook, thus, not taking up all your desk space and allowing room for textbooks and journals, while still allowing for a comfortable screen size for gaming. The only true worry I have about the laptop is how hot it can get by just having the laptop in "Balanced Mode", a mixture between power saving and quality frames and resolution, near the vents. But I am sure this can be somehow dealt with either through adjustments, either through changing settings and another way. Overall, the MSI 15m Stealth is a great laptop for a student who wants to dabble in gaming alongside his studies at a great price as well.

    The specs, besides the intel core is amazing. I would have liked to the AMD Ryzen, but intel is nice too. The graphics card is above or equivalent next gen, as the next gen video card is the 2070ti. The extra storage would be nice too, but it is easily upgradeable. Overall, the best thing about this laptop imo is that it looks like a normal work computer. It doesn't have the rigid edges that I dislike. Its also incredibly light, which you dont see too much in the gaming laptop department.

    PROs

    FAST. I searched and compared hundreds of laptops at the price range of 1k~1.6K and this one came on
    top 10% using cpu/gpu benchmark results.
    LIGHT. This is the ONLY laptop with such specs under 4 pounds that I could find.
    STURDY. Well, it's my personal opinion but it feels sturdy and well built.
    I like the way keyboard feels its click makes almost no sound and feels soft to touch.

    CONs

    It gets hot when gaming but is very well expected.
    Screen could be a bit brighter.
    Touchpad is placed a bit to the right. If you have big hands/palms, it might be tricky typing without touching it.

    To sum it all, I like this laptop and would suggest buying it.

    Pros:
    Laptop has a very fast start time due to solid state drive

    Runs every game I play on the highest settings

    Well lit and comfortable keyboard

    Beautiful screen

    For a gaming laptop the battery life is acceptable, around 4-5 hours when doing schoolwork.

    Able to change keyboard color

    Feels sturdy with an aluminum body.

    Lightweight.

    Cons:
    I have read that, though the video card is capable of running VR; their are some complications in running VR. I have not tried this myself, but it is something you might want to research before buying.

    The speakers are a bit more quiet than I would prefer them to be. I use a headset when gaming so it is hardly an issue.

    The fans are pretty loud on the highest setting, however I rarely need to have them on this setting.

    Overall I am very pleased with the laptop. It arrived in perfect condition and protected by 2 boxes. It was easy to set up and has not caused me any issues.

    I am in love, this gaming laptop is one of the best purchases I have ever made, the screen quality is great, it's very fluid, and runs smoothly. As for all gaming laptops, they do tend to get warm so secure yourself a cooling pad and update your drivers. Dragon Center is amazing, MSI really puts out quality work, I highly recommend this product to anyone. Battery life can be adjusted but unplugged and depending on what you're doing you'll have a decent amount of gaming time or if you're doing work, school assignments, etc. Overall this is still a great buy, I definitely need to buy my PC after this.

A pesar de poseer especificaciones gamer, se puede jugar perfectamente todos los videojuegos actuales, pero bajando un poco las opciones gráficas, pues se calienta por sobre los 80C jugando PUBG en ultra 1080p al igual que con CONTROL. Por el precio, recomendado, otorga full movilidad.
