GS65 Stealth Thin Fingerprint Reader - False Advertising?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Evidently all the reviewers got the script that said the GS65 comes with a fingerprint reader built into the power button, but as of writing this post I still haven't seen anything confirming this or refuting this. Is it physically there but not implemented? Not there at all? Or is it there and just mediocre enough to fly under my radar?

 

Asking because holiday season is coming and I'm torn between an Aero 15W and a GS65, as both are perfect for my kind of workflow (also bc I got screwed over by amazon who delivered to the wrong address)

I think Dave Lee said MSI might implement a fingerprint sensor into the power button, but I don't think they added it.
