MSI GS63VR 7RF Stealth Pro 4K Review

Up Close

MSIs laptop packaging is always excellent and the GS63VR is no exception. Beneath the laptop is the charger and documentation, whilst the combination of plastic, foam and heavy cardboard ensure that it arrives to you in the same state it left the factory. We've seen a lot of MSI laptops in their Stealth chassis and it has proven itself over a long time as an excellent offering. It is beautiful brushed aluminium that has been anodised black, and with some red highlights there is much to enjoy about the looks. As you can see from our bottom image if you're the type of person who believes that thinness is an admirable quality then the 7RF wont disappoint, only a 20p (21mm) in height. The underside has a soft feel to it, perfect for gripping non-uniform surfaces or if you fancy wearing shorts whilst using it. With Thunderbolt, USB 3.1 C-type, and lots of display outs there is a connection option to suit everyone. With the lid up you can see the 15" 4K screen, more on that later, and the Steelseries keyboard with full RGB lighting. The Stealth Pro also comes with the updated trackpad that 'hides' the left and right mouse buttons at the bottom of the pad, rather than making them obvious. It all adds up to a very sleek looking design.

Good review overall; the reasoning for 4k screen make perfect sense...why not just a 1080p at 15" since you are right and you definitely have to magnify everything....why not just go with 1440p (almost the same as 4k and not like EITHER of them are honestly the norm for screen anyways, not for laptop or monitors yet in my opinion).Quote

Yeah 4k on a 1060.. a 1080 would struggle more often than not. I mean if you are playing WoW or LoL/Dota 2 and games like that it would be fine. But for anything serious.. just no.
Also the fact 4k would drain the battery life immensely.
Very decent 1080p results though. No surprise there.

Overall great review. I wouldn't mind more laptop reviews, always nice to have a change from custom PCs.Quote

I must say that my old 4k monitor did used to down scale very very well. You would never know you were not on a 1080p/1440p screen. So I guess there's no real overall harm in having the screen 4k and then gaming at lower resolutions.

Thing is dude every one needs to offer stupid resolutions now 'cause Apple.Quote

Apple is even worse. 5k with an even weaker GPU. Quote
