83.7% MSI Summit E15 laptop review: Advance into the premium business segment | Notebookcheck
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.

MSI Summit E15 (A11x) review – the mountain is high but you have the equipment
Source: Laptop Media English
On its Web page, MSI states that its notebook will last for more than 16 hours on a single charge. Yeah… no. Its large 82Wh battery lasted for 11 hours and a half of Web browsing, and a bit over 10 hours of video playback. Also, we tried gaming on it, but then, it ran out of juice after one hour and 37 minutes.

The MSI Summit E15 delivers medium-to-high performance on a range of productivity tasks and its styling complements any office environment. With an 11-gen chipset and 4K display, its utility for creative professionals is especially appealing. However, its battery life is not the best when playing 4K video on high brightness settings.

MSI Prestige 14 (A11SX) review – GTX 1650 Max-Q on a laptop that weighs 1.29 kg?
Source: Laptop Media English
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.

60% MSI Summit E15 laptop review 2021 | Model A11SCS
Source: Bit-Tech English
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.

MSI: Micro-Star International (MSI), is a Taiwan based computer hardware manufacturer since 1986 best known for desktop computer motherboards. MSI also designs and manufactures graphics cards, barebone PCs, notebook computers, networking products, servers, multimedia, consumer electronics, and storage devices. MSI, as most Taiwanese computer manufacturers, sells products on OEM/ODM basis. It also sells products worldwide based on its own brand name "MSI". The market share of laptops with the MSI brand is rather low.

MSI is not present in the smartphone market. As a laptop manufacturer, MSI has a medium market share and is not among the Top 10 global manufacturers. The ratings of MSI laptops are above average in the tests (as of 2016).


With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

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).
