Is there any difference between this and the more expensive GS66 Stealth besides the video card?

This has 144HZ screen vs 240 HZ screen of the other laptop. For gaming, it might matter, but for battery life, 144HZ is much better.

Amazon had this same laptop but with a 2070 for 1099 during BF. These deals tend to reappear during the holiday sales if you can hold off.

That was an entirely different series of device. That was a GL65 I believe, much bigger, heavier, and much less build quality. Just a different laptop.

I have this laptop but with the 2070 max. The keyboard takes a little bit getting use to but is pretty comfortable after. RGB lighting isn't as bright. It takes 9 screws for the under plate to come off but you got to use a card or guitar pick to wedge to get the cover off. Rams, wifi card, 2 m.2 slots (1 sata/pcie and the other pcie) is easy to get to and the motherboard is not flipped. Battery life is pretty good once you do some adjustments. I was able to get around 6-8 hours with moderate use. Not sure wtih gaming. You can type reddit gs66 battery and will see a guy that was able to have a write up on reduce temps and extend battery life. I love the advance bios feature to undervolt and set rams. With an undervolt of -.100mv at idle im about 36 degrees. Have not gotten to game yet. The speakers are crap but if you type gs66 speaker adjustments you should be able to download a software and input a configuration that will make it sound more decent. The rams that came with mines was 3200mhz... alot of videos saying it was 2666mhz. I ordered the hyperx impact during the sale for 32 gb 2933 mhz -_- at about 100 bucks. Laptop detected it and automatically set to 2933. Jarrod did a good video comparing 2666 mhz to 2933 rams and there was not much improvement. I just wanted 32 rams not 16. Overall i love the laptop.

The difference would be cpu 10750h, 10875h,10980hk.

Video card 2060, 2070 maxq, 2080max q.

Screens 144hz, 240hz, 300hz.

And then memory configurations.

GS66 Stealth has a bigger 99.9wh battery; the maximum allowed in a laptop for carrying on a plane.
It's one of the best built gaming laptops on the market. Everything is metal; including the bottom cover. The hinge is very solid and has little to no screen wobble. When you close the lid, it doesn't slam shut like some laptops. Keyboard is tactile. When you press fn key, it lights up all the function icons which is nice. It weighs less than most 15.6" gaming laptops and thinner than most. It is one of the only gaming laptops I would consider bringing along for work and travel. I would have purchased the GS65 Stealth last year but the motherboard was upside down. They fixed that with the GS66 Stealth. Now it's perfect.

Interesting and good deal considering this line of MSI laptop is always expensive. $1300++
Seems like it has good build quality, portable design, excellent long 99wh battery and lighter weight than other past laptops ~ only 4.6lbs.
--But one review mentions cheap plastic bottom that is already cracking from normal travel...so not sure how bad that really is...
----
Some people may not think much of this deal since there were potentially better larger 5lb to 5.5lb slightly thicker Ryzen7 laptops in the past week/ Black Friday eg.Legion5 and HP omen 15.6" RTX 2060 for $900ish to $1150..those might be preferred over this...
.....But I know this particular MSI laptop line is hard to find at a lower price than this..so good for MSI fanboys who prefer this smaller thinner build.

How does this laptop compare to this ASUS deal or this Dell deal? I want it mainly for autocad, indesign, and photoshop. Seems like the ASUS would be the best deal, right? Thanks and reps for help!
