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.

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.
