MSI Summit E13 Flip Evo: Perfection in every detail for your business success
The pandemic has brought new challenges in almost every sphere of human endeavor, forcing us to rethink and restrategize the way we work. People are more reliant on their mobile devices, particularly laptops, than ever before which, while good in a way, presents new complexities on its own.
Most business laptops on the market today do not offer a holistic package of unhindered mobility, processing power, battery life, and something that is often ignored in this segment — a good design aesthetic.
However, all that changes now. The time has come for the next chapter in business productivity.
Meet the MSI Summit E13 Flip Evo
The Summit E13 Flip Evo, based on the Intel Evo platform, offers unhindered Intel 11th generation Tiger Lake CPU performance, superfast online connectivity thanks to Wi-Fi 6E - the first in any commercial laptop, a long battery life up to 20 hours, an extremely quiet noise profile, and a whole ecosystem of accessories including the MSI Pen to take your productivity to greater heights.
MSI will also be soon introducing the Summit E16 featuring the latest NVIDIA RTX 30 series Laptop GPUs, making it the first business convertible to offer a discrete graphics card.
In this article, we will look into how the MSI Summit E13 Flip Evo can give some much needed stimulus to your productivity all while making a lasting impression with its aesthetically designed 16:10 Golden Ratio display.
Your perfect business companion
Tackling modern business challenges requires an all-encompassing approach that brings together diverse aspects such as design, hardware, battery life, and connectivity. The MSI Summit E13 Flip Evo performs this synergy with élan and panache.
Every aspect of the MSI Summit E13 Flip Evo, right from the MSI logo to the display and even the lid, is made to conform to the golden ratio of 1.618. Maintaining the same golden ratio design guideline across aspects of the device gives a sense of proportion and harmony. Everything seems so coherent, which makes working on the Summit E13 Flip Evo a true pleasure. The extremely slim bezels help maximize the viewing area of the 13.4-inch 16:10 display and the added vertical area helps you see more of the content without having to scroll frequently.
The chassis is processed by CNC milling, which ensures a high precision yet smooth finish. The unibody design of the Summit E13 Flip Evo, available in a choice of Pure White and Ink Black color options, is just 14.9 mm thick and weighs only 1.35 kg, thereby enabling sleekness and portability like no other. This is one laptop you would want to flaunt while carrying around.
The Intel 11th gen Tiger Lake platform offers unprecedented levels of performance for business and productivity applications. The Summit E13 Flip Evo is powered by the Intel Tiger Lake Core i7-1185G7 processor that is up to 1.5x faster than the previous generation while helping conserve battery life. The Core i7-1185G7 also features Intel's latest integrated graphics solution, Iris Xe. Despite being just 14.9 mm thick, the MSI Summit E13 Flip can allow for longer, sustained utilization of the Core i7-1185G7's 28 W TDP.
Battery life is a critical factor in maximizing productivity on the move. The MSI Summit E13 Flip Evo addresses this issue by offering a large 70 Wh battery, which is about 50% larger than most 13.4-inch business convertibles on the market today. The large battery capacity can offer up to 20 hours of battery life on a single charge while MSI Center's Battery Master feature ensures battery longevity via an AI Charger mode. What's more, MSI's fast-charging technology can charge the battery to 60% in just 48 minutes. You can get up to 2.5 hours of battery life with just a 15-minute charge.
