The flexibility and portability of the newly launched MSI Summit E14 Flip Evo are impressive. The foldable two-in-one laptop has a 360 degrees Flip design, allowing two options: a laptop or a tablet.

Initially, the MSI Summit E14 Flip Evo appears heavy, but appearances are deceptive. The ultra-light body is 17.9 millimeters and weighs only 1.6 kilograms, making it easy to carry around or move from one place to another. The extremely compact laptop will support any job that calls for mobility and advanced productively anywhere.

Typing provides another early surprise, the keyboard is very quiet and soft to the touch. The quiet keyboard means that it does not disturb colleagues when working in the office or family members when at home, but most importantly, it helps the user focus on their job as a business professional.

Like the previous MSI series, particularly the MSI Summit E13 Flip Evo, the MSI Summit E14 Flip Evo features a 16:10 display ratio, which fully demonstrates the appeal of the Golden Ratio: 1.618. It provides extra space in a workplace through a wider screen, compared to a laptop with a display ratio 16:9. The display is compatible with the MSI pen.

You can use the MSI pen as a stylus to draw, sketch, take notes, copy edit, or sign documents. The MSI pen supports accurate precision for a natural writing experience. It comes with two types of replaceable pen tips, a sharper tip like a fountain pen and a rounder tip like a crayon.

Not all applications can work with the MSI pen, however. If you use the MSI pen as a stylus to take notes or draw, then you can use Paint or Sticky Notes. The MSI pen does not work in MS Word and Notepad, although you can open them with the pen.

The MSI pen can also function as a Bluetooth remote control. Just press the Bluetooth button once or twice, and it triggers the page-up and page-down key commands, respectively. With the MSI pen, you can also control web pages, the PDF reader and other apps to scroll up or down.

The MSI Summit E14 Flip Evo has a touchscreen feature, which enables you to interact directly with what is displayed. The touchscreen display makes navigation easier through gestures such as fast-scrolling and pinch-to-zoom. When working in laptop mode, you no longer have to use a touchpad or mouse, which means time-saving.

When it comes to usage, the touchscreen feature can be utilized more effectively when the device is used in tablet mode, which gives you more flexibility in positioning, whether sitting, standing or lying in bed.

This combination between the display and MSI pen makes for a compact and aesthetically pleasing laptop design that is fit for any work-intensive purposes. The design allows for the most comfortable visual experience for long-term usage.

The MSI Summit E14 Flip Evo comes equipped with the latest 12th-generation Intel® Core™ i7 processor and Intel® Iris® Xe graphics, enabling it to deliver heavyweight performance. Technically speaking, the key advantage of the Intel i7 chips involves Hyper-Threading, essentially a way of doing more tasks.

A stress test on MSI Summit E14 Flip Evo was conducted recently to find out the real performance of the machine by opening 10 different tabs in the browser, such as streaming and browsing while software benchmarking was in progress.

As shown in the Task Manager feature, the high-end MSI Summit E14 Flip Evo only consumed 2 percent of the CPU, 48 percent of memory and 2 percent of the disk. Despite the heavy burden, the MSI Summit E14 Flip Evo could perform the tasks well instead of lagging, slowing down or hanging, which means its hardware components and specifications are highly reliable. No doubt, the MSI Summit E14 Flip Evo can support all your business activities, which demands efficiency.

Every innovation found in the MSI Summit E14 Flip Evo has highly useful functions to support your job. For example, the screen rotation feature can be utilized to help you make your presentations. When flipping the screen 180 degrees, the texts and images will seamlessly move along with it, which will allow your clients to follow your presentation with ease. After rotating the screen, press F12 and the texts and images will automatically appear upright. Or alternatively, you can rotate 360 degrees and the texts and images will automatically appear upright.

Data protection is, indeed, of paramount importance to make sure that your business activities can run as planned, undisturbed by the loss of data. The MSI Summit E14 Flip Evo uses the Solid State Drive (SSD), which has many advantages, including shake-and-vibration resistance.

When testing the MSI Summit E14 Flip Evo, the laptop was shaken and moved from one room to another. Interestingly, upon checking the device, it was found that all the data had remained intact, unaffected by the rigorous activities. So, when using the MSI Summit E14 Flip Evo, you won’t have to worry about losing your data even when you have to travel or work on bumpy modes of transportation.

What is more, the MSI Summit E14 Flip Evo is Intel Evo platform-certified and comes with Thunderbolt 4 and Wi-Fi 6E with 9.6 Gbps, far higher than the maximum 3.5 Gbps commonly used in the previous generation of laptops. As a consequence, the laptop stands out in connectivity performance. When used to download or upload big files, for example, it performs very fast.

Battery life

The MSI Summit E14 Flip Evo has 72 watt-hours of battery capacity, a significant amount for a 14-inch laptop with an IPS Level display.

How fast the battery can charge is crucial when it comes to the usage of the laptop. When testing the MSI Summit E14 Flip Evo’s battery charging life, the laptop could be used for almost two hours with just a 15-minute charge, or more than eight hours when charged for one hour.

The MSI Summit E14 Flip Evo’s battery life was also tested by using it for web browsing and watching videos without stopping and the result was seven hours and nine hours, respectively. This is far superior to the average of five and seven hours commonly performed in other brands of the same class.

Additionally, with the MSI Summit E14 Flip Evo coming with a type C charger, you can charge the laptop from a power bank that adopts power delivery (PD) technology, which is helpful in case of emergency. 

It comes as no surprise, therefore, to learn that the MSI Summit E14 Flip Evo provides an enhanced combination of performance, responsiveness and battery life.

Video conference

Joining a video conference or Zoom meeting is part of any activity in today’s information age, in which the hybrid workplace has become increasingly popular in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. The MSI Summit E14 Flip Evo has a clear video-conference quality with MSI total solution. The webcam is Full HD (IRFHD 30FPS@72), which can capture pictures subtly, clearly and perfectly. Another plus point is that the noise-reduction cam feature enables the webcam to reduce signal noise and increase image quality when tested in poor lighting conditions.

The MSI Summit E14 Flip Evo also features AI noise cancellation and a quadruple mic, which helps to eliminate unnecessary background sound from both parties and to further improve clarity in video conferencing, proving that the MSI Summit E14 Evo is a real business and productivity laptop.

The noise reduction technology means only the user’s voice can go through the mic, and this way, other participants could only hear the user’s voice despite the presence of background noise.

Security System

The MSI Summit E14 Flip Evo ensures that only you as the owner or user can operate the laptop because it comes equipped with Tobii Aware software. The “peeker” detection available in Tobii Aware software uses subtle visual clues to tell you when another person is looking at the screen. It can then automatically blur the screen if desired, protecting the information shown on the device in scenarios requiring a high level of privacy. As such, data loss can that occur when a hacker gains access to your laptop can be prevented. Tobii Aware allows you to safely work in any environment by improving the devices’ security and privacy.

To activate Tobii Aware, users must first enter the security privacy tab and turn on the privacy screen, with the infrared camera still on. You would not be able to operate the laptop until you place your face in front of the infrared camera for verification, which the Tobii Aware feature will ask you to do. If you turn your head, the screen will blur. If you walk away from the device, it will automatically stop working and won’t resume until you return to sit in front of it.

The MSI Summit E14 Flip Evo is protected with Tile tracking technology, enabling the laptop to be located even in shutdown mode. Under the feature Find My PC, users can check the location of their laptop on Tile’s map using Bluetooth. 

The final feature that supports the MSI Summit E14 Flip Evo’s performance is MSI Center Pro. The center is designed to enhance user experience on MSI devices.

With MSI Center Pro, productivity is improved with an optimized system that keeps it stable through system diagnosis. MSI Center Pro takes optimization to the next level with easily adjustable system modes and resources for a wide range of scenarios and needs.

On top of having powerful hardware components, from the GPU, RAM and Disk to VGA, the MSI Summit E14 Flip Evo is supported by a sophisticated webcam and high-quality battery; two components that most businesspeople and professionals highly need.

Beyond question, the MSI Summit E14 Flip Evo has all the features required for today’s hybrid working environment.
