Concluding Words:

Even though this laptop has many good specs still few things are missing in this laptop. 
  • This laptop doesn’t have the SD card reader slot, which might be boon for some creators.
  • No dedicated headphone and mic jack.
  • Even though this laptop is fingerprint magnet still it doesn’t have the fingerprint scanner.


MSI GS66 Stealth laptop definitely raised the bar in terms of quality and expectation. With the latest processor and new graphics card, this laptop is beast in performance. But is the RTX 2080 Super Max-Q, i9-10th Gen, 300 Hz screen and 99.9 WH Battery enough to justify the price tag? Other companies are providing similar configuration with better pricing. But if the price doesn’t matter for you or you are a gamer and wants to have a little edge over 3ms response time, you can consider buying this laptop.
