At CES 2020 MSI has updated its GS65 lineup with its new GS66 series of notebooks, and this time, MSI's Stealth model has our attention. Meet the GS66 Stealth, the laptop that's barely legal. 

MSI's GS Stealth series has been popular with customers for a number of reasons, from its thin and lite design to its down to business all-black aesthetic. This laptop would look out of place beside a gaming setup, or on a CEO's desk, it's a sharp, premium-looking design which adds a lot to MSI's gaming notebook offerings.   

The main upgrade that MSI's new GS66 Stealth is the system's updated battery, which skits around legal flying capacity requirements by offering a borderline legal 99.9Wh power capacity. This represents an upgrade of almost 25% over 2019's GS65 Stealth. This is the biggest laptop battery that a frequent flyer can use, and that should give the GS66 Stealth a decent battery life. 

In addition to these changes comes MSI's new  Cooler Boost Trinity+ cooling system, which now utilises the world's thinnest (0.1mm) notebook fan blades to deliver a 10% airflow upgrade and superior thermal dissipation. 

Sadly, MSI has not specified the full specifications of MSI's GS66 Stealth notebook, though it is expected to offer users Intel Comet Lake series processors, Intel HD or Nvidia Discrete graphics, an RGB keyboard and up to a 15.6-inch 240Hz Full HD IPS display. 

    Lower profile but higher capability: GS66 Stealth, sharper in core black

MSI GS66 Stealth is the latest member of the slim-n-light gaming squadron. The GS66 features a pure black, mystical theme and premium texture in a more low-key way, making it sharper and sleeker than ever. The cutting-edge features are all packed inside this stealth fighter, not only with a new battery that reaches the highest legal capacity for flying at 99.9Wh, but its triple-fan cooling design, Cooler Boost Trinity+, is now redesigned with the world’s thinnest 0.1mm fan blades for up to 10% more airflow for a much better thermal solution. With the most powerful battery and best cooling capacity, the GS66 has perfectly interpreted “worker by day, gamer by night” like a dark knight.
