GS65 Stealth Thin Gaming Laptop

The GS65 Stealth Thin is the first gaming laptop to feature a 144Hz 7ms IPS display with 4.9mm bezels – achieving a stunning 82 percent screen-to-body ratio.

While the bezels are extremely thin, MSI did not compromise on the placement of the webcam. MSI left just enough room in the top bezel for the webcam, as opposed to being awkwardly placed within the bottom bezel.
