Reviews for the MSI Summit E15 A11SCST
The Summit E15 is supposed to make life difficult for the established Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Extreme and Dell XPS 15 top dogs. To achieve this, MSI uses the most current technology: Tiger Lake, Turing, USB 4.0, Thunderbolt 4, PCI Express 4. Our test shows, whether this plan succeeds.

Today, we had the thinnest and lightest laptop that has a GTX 1650 Max-Q graphics card up to date. Or at least it is a first for us. The Prestige 14 (A11Sx) looks absolutely stunning, especially when it’s dressed in white. In order to accommodate the dedicated GPU, as well as the Core i7-1185G7, MSI decided to lift the backside of the base from the ground. This gives a lot more breathing space for the fan inside. Interestingly, the cooling solution is able to maintain a 35W power limit on this CPU, which is one of the highest out there, pretty much helping it perform significantly better than a Core i5-10300H.

The MSI Summit E15 A11SCS can be had for $2,899 and comes with a two-year warranty. To be frank, that feels expensive: the laptop promises greatness but doesn't to achieve it. The high-end business laptop market is crowded with great choices – including from MSI's own stable – and we’d choose all of them over this. There's also the mid-range, $1,499 MSI Modern 15 which, at half the price, is not far behind the Summit at all. We much prefer the resplendent MSI Prestige anyway (despite being a 14-inch model) and that's $800 less.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Ti Max-Q: Mid range dedicated graphics card for laptops that uses a Turing TU117 chip without raytracing and Tensor cores. Runs at reduced clock speeds compared to a laptop GTX 1650 Ti to achieve a much lower power consumption (35 versus 50 - 80 Watt).
With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.
i7-1185G7: Tiger Lake based low power quad-core processor for thin and light laptops. The four cores clock around 3 - 4.8 GHz. Produced on the second-gen 10 nm Intel process.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
15-16 inch is a standard display size for laptops and offers the biggest variety of products.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
This weight is typical for very big tablets, subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 11-13 inch display-diagonal.
