Reviews for the MSI Summit E14 Flip Evo A12MT
Having already cracked the gaming space, MSI is continuing its efforts to carve into the lucrative office and business segment with its Summit series of prosumer devices. The Summit E14 Flip is one of the best models in its family thus far with build quality rivaling that of bigger OEMs.
We can see the MSI Summit E14 Flip Evo performing exceptionally well as a business laptop, as regardless of your workflow, it could fill a gap and add beneficial functionality. The standout element of this device is its ability to adapt to many scenarios without skipping a beat. The build quality is excellent, the battery is good, the performance is solid, and the added features work well.

During my time with the MSI Summit E14 Flip Evo, I found it difficult to put it down during work hours. It's a neat system that packs a lot of power and has enough battery life to get you through a workday of basic tasks. The keyboard is also comfortable to use, although the trackpad sucks. Overall, it will be difficult to send it back after my 90-day loan period.

The Summit E14 Flip is a well-configured laptop that suffers from inconsistent performance and below-average battery life. Its touchpad is also a weakness, while its display and keyboard are competitive. The problem is that there are so many good 14-inch laptops available today, and the Summit E14 Flip is already competing against several excellent 2-in-1 laptops. It’s a bit expensive as well, which doesn’t help, and overall, the laptop is hard to recommend.

There are hardly any tablets in this display size range anymore. For subnotebooks, on the other hand, it is the standard format.
The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small and therefore easily portable. The smaller display also has the advantage of requiring less power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is more strenuous on the eyes. High resolutions are more likely to be found in standard laptops.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
