Update: Read our full, in-depth, MSI Mercedes laptop review

The Stealth 16 laptop is described as a, “Perfect fusion of opulence and high-performance, showcasing a captivating Selenite Gray color design. The laptop’s exclusive AMG Rhombuses pattern and its magnesium-aluminum alloy chassis exude an air of mystery, paying homage to the indomitable Mercedes-AMG GT2 on the racetrack. What truly sets the laptop apart are the prominent Mercedes-AMG Motorsport logos adorning the top cover, bottom bezel, and back cover, elevating the excitement for motorsport aficionados.”

The Stealth 16 Mercedes-AMG Motorsport’s specs are designed to, “Match the allure of its exterior.” It has a Core i9 processor, Nvidia RTX 40 graphics and a UHD, 16:10 ratio, OLED display. It’s cooled by MSI’s Cooler Boost 5 system which has two fans and five heat pipes.

The laptop comes in a special gift box with limited edition accessories including a mouse, mouse pad, USB drive, pouch, postcards and cable ties – all with MSI and Mercedes-AMG Motorsport design elements.

Eric Kuo, MSI’s Executive Vice President & Notebook Business Unit GM, said, “For us, luxury gaming is more. It’s not just playing the games. When the users open up the lids of MSI laptops, it’s the start of a luxury journey. They will be amazed by the superior build quality and elegant design, which is luxurious aesthetic.”

Christoph Sagemueller, Head of Mercedes-AMG Motorsport, highlighted the importance of finding a partner that shares its ambitions, stating, “It was crucial for us to find a partner who shares our values and ambition. MSI, a leading brand in the technology and gaming industry, proved to be the perfect fit. They demonstrate a strong commitment to innovation and a passion for high-performance products.”

Later on in the event, MSI showcased the Smart Touchpad found on the Raider GE78 HX gaming laptop. It provides single-click access to frequently used functions and has an expandable design that can transform it onto the, ‘largest touchpad ever seen on a laptop.’

MSI also announced the integration of its ‘AI Artist’ generative AI software to, ‘Give creators a more intuitive and faster way of generating photo-realistic images without the risk of data leakage.’

The recent Cyborg 15 was also showcased to show that MSI also supports gamers on a lower budget. It highlighted how the company’s use of magnesium-aluminum alloys improves upon the general build quality across the industry.

We’ll be providing extended coverage of the event and the laptop in more detail, soon. We expect the new Limited Edition Stealth 16 will also make it onto our list of Cool Laptops.
