MSI, which we are well acquainted with with its computers that mostly attract great attention from gamers, this time draws attention with its new laptops for professionals. We are reviewing the Summit E13 Flip Evo, MSI’s new laptop, which is both a computer and a tablet, and you can use it for many different purposes.
We all know the MSI brand. It is a giant brand that meets the expectations of the players with the devices it produces, especially when it comes to the game side. However, MSI wants to touch not only the players but also the professional life. This device in my hand is actually a special device developed in this direction.computer.
Summit E3 Flip Evo is a very useful product that can be used in different ways. We can use this device comfortably in the form of a standard laptop, in the form of a tent, while reading a book, or in the form of a tablet. When using it in tablet mode, we can take notes, for example, in the lessons we attend or in the meetings we attend, by using the pen that comes with this device. Very practical…
We know MSI for gaming laptops that are generally heavy. When I first saw the Summit E13 Flip Evo, I thought it was a heavy device. However, despite its metal body, it only weighs 1.35 kg. In other words, we are talking about a multi-purpose computer that you can easily carry with you. And of course, at this point, you will have those who are curious about the charging adapter. Of course, there isn’t a charging adapter that is that big, heavy in gold bullion. With this tiny adapter, you can easily fit the Summit E13 Flip Evo into the bag, you don’t feel its weight. Especially in today’s conditions, it sounds good to be able to use a product that is both strong and light in hardware and designed for different scenarios, while being well-adapted to mobile life.
I really liked its design. Its sharp lines definitely added a different atmosphere. Also, the fact that the screen can be opened with one hand is an important point in my opinion.
The screen of our device has a touch structure and this touch screen with 10 finger detection has a very high sensitivity. MSI Summit E13 Flip Evo, which is 13.4 inches in size, offers 1920×1200 FHD + screen resolution.
MSI has also calculated the finest points in the design of this device and paid attention to the golden ratio harmony. So what does this mean? Offering a higher screen-to-body ratio with its changing logo design, Summit E13 Flip Evo’s 16:10 aspect ratio screen has all the features of the golden ratio in mind.
Another important point about the screen is that you can use this device in almost any light condition without any problems. Thanks to the 500 NIT screen brightness level, you can easily see everything reflected on the screen while sitting outside, for example in a cafe or in the park.
With the pandemic process, many people started to work outside the office. As a result, web cam became vital for attending meetings. The 720p 30FOS webcam on this device can also meet your needs. You can see the green light next to the webcam when the webcam is actively used. When you are not using the webcam, there is a key lock on the right side of the device to completely disable the webcam. Thus, you don’t have to worry about pulling tags on the webcam and when you lock it, the doubt of ‘I wonder if I’m being watched’ disappears.
Speaking of the camera, infrared supported face recognition technology is also included in this device. Thanks to this technology, your computer can scan your face faster and more accurately and unlock the screen quickly.
Let’s come to the keyboard design… At this point, of course, our first expectation is that the keyboard has an ergonomic structure. In this respect, the keyboard of the Summit E13 Flip Evo does its job well. Typing with this keyboard is also very comfortable. The backlight of the keyboard is also an important feature when typing with light touches. This 3-stage lighting system, of course, does not mean that RGB colors are on this keyboard. Of course, it would be unnecessary to have a colorful keyboard in meetings or in the classroom. That’s why MSI also uses white for keyboard lighting.
Next to the touchpad is a fingerprint reader. You can unlock the screen quickly using your fingerprint instead of a password, and you don’t have to worry about entering a password.
The pen is an important accessory of this device… MSI Pen is a pen with 4096 levels of pressure sensitivity. If you are drawing pictures or graphics, making various drawings, or just taking notes, this pen will do the trick. To charge the pen, you use the USB Type-C port on it. There is a Bluetooth button on the back of the pen and you use it for pairing.
You can use the MSI Pen without pairing, but you need to pair it to use all its functions.
MSI also took precautions against the possibility that the pen could easily fall or be lost. We can stick the pen to the computer in two different ways. It is possible to attach the MSI Pen to the screen or just to the left. The pen sticks very firmly. Even if you shake the computer, the pen does not move.
Let me talk about the hardware features that provide the high performance of our computer. Our computer includes a new generation 4-core Intel Core i7 1185G7 processor with a speed of up to 4.8 GHz. Along with this processor comes the built-in Iris Xe graphics chip. In daily use, this hardware is more than enough for users.
The MSI Summit E13 Flip Evo, which appeals to more professional use, is not a gaming computer. Iris Xe is a chip that comes integrated with the processor. Therefore, we are not talking about a special graphics card, and those who want to play new generation games at high graphics settings can take a look at MSI’s other gaming systems for gamers.
So does this mean that the games don’t run on our computer? Of course not. You can play popular games such as Valorant and PUBG fluently at appropriate settings.
Summit E13 Flip Evo, which comes with 32 GB of RAM running at 4266 Mhz, uses a 1 TB m2 SSD when it comes to the storage side. PCIe 4.0 SSD effectively accelerates your daily workflow with top-level storage performance, while Gen4 SSD provides 2 times the bus compared to the previous generation. Thus, it is possible to reach transfer speeds approaching 8 GB per second.
If we wish, we also have the chance to increase the total memory later.
The Thunderbolt 4 ports on the device are another outstanding feature. In this way, the Summit series allows you to connect multiple displays and many peripherals in addition to data transfer up to 40Gb/s with USB 4.0 type-C.
We also have a microSD card reader and it is capable of high speed data transfer.
One of the most important points where this device shows its difference is on the battery side. When you charge this device for only 30 minutes with the 65W charging adapter, you get about 4 hours of battery life. Of course, this may vary depending on the average duration we are talking about and your usage habits. When we charge the device in 1.5-2 hours, we can charge the battery from 0 percent to 100 percent.
When the battery is fully charged, you get an average of 10 hours of battery life. An ideal time for daily use.
Let’s also talk about MSI Center Pro software. Users can get maximum efficiency from their computer by choosing the most suitable mode for their needs through this software. While you can choose High Performance mode in situations where you will use system resources intensively, you can work efficiently by saving battery life with Super Battery Life for longer battery life. Thanks to the Silent mode, a quiet usage experience is possible. Although our device works silently in every mode, when you are in Silent mode, you don’t even hear the device working because it makes a noise below 30 decibels. Thus, you never encounter a problem such as fan noise.
Duet Display support is also a useful feature that MSI offers on this device. You can use your tablet as a second screen without delay using MSI Center Pro software. This naturally presents a great opportunity for you to increase your productivity. Keep in mind in cases where one screen is not enough!
Modern Standby is another feature that stands out. Found in the MSI Summit series, this feature comes with Intel’s Evo platform. While your laptop is asleep, you continue to receive all notifications and updates, like phones, while allowing the operating system to run. When you wake up the laptop, you can easily continue your work from where you left off.
When we look at these features in general terms, I can say that we can do our daily work very comfortably thanks to this two-in-one computer from MSI. If you are looking for a laptop that is stylish, thin, light and quiet, and will accompany you in your professional business life or education life, MSI Summit E13 Flip Evo is just for you…
