The MSI Stealth GS77 is a high-end laptop with a robust configuration that includes a large storage capacity and ample RAM, empowering it to handle demanding tasks like 3D rendering, machine learning, and engineering work. It features a potent main processor and a dedicated Nvidia RTX GPU suitable for intensive gaming and tasks requiring hardware ray tracing or DLSS technology. The 17.3-inch display offers a high refresh rate, which benefits gaming and fast-motion visuals, and covers a wide range of color spaces for precise color work. However, its larger screen and higher performance make it less portable and heavier than smaller laptops. The laptop's premium build quality is accompanied by a premium price, and while it's not the most portable option, it offers a backlit keyboard with a number pad, multiple USB-C including Thunderbolt ports, and an Ethernet connection for comprehensive connectivity. Battery life is sufficient for several hours of typical use, but may not last a full day for intensive tasks without access to power. Give Feedback

Allen Ngo | April 2022
"The MSI Stealth GS77 is better than the GS76... mostly. The GS77 is a few steps forward and a few steps back from the GS76. Improvements are numerous including the stronger and more rigid skeleton, higher resolution webcam, larger clickpad, easier serviceability, relatively similar battery runtimes, newer display options, and higher performance at about the same TDP and TGP levels as before. CPU performance is better than expected even when compared to other laptops with Core i7 or Core i9 processors. The newer model feels more substantial than the outgoing one for higher quality impressions as well."
