MSI today announced a couple of new Summit notebooks. A 15-inch model recently visited our lab and is now joined by the 13-inch Summit E13 Flip Evo and the 16-inch Summit E16 Flip.
Both new items are distinguished by thin and light enough cases, the ability to transform into a tablet, a minimalistic design, the presence of modern solutions, including Wi-Fi 6E and Thunderbolt 4, and the Intel Tiger Lake platform with processors up to Core i7-1185G7.
The younger model is equipped with a 13.4-inch touchscreen display with a resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels, which boasts stylus support. RAM here can be up to 32 GB. There are a pair of Thunderbolt 4 ports, one USB-C, one USB-A, and a slot for microSD. It is also worth noting a physical camera shutter, a fingerprint scanner, a 70 Wh battery, and dimensions of 300 x 222 x 14.9 mm with a weight of 1.35 kg.
The Summit E16 Flip is similar to the smaller model in terms of basic features but features a much larger screen with the same aspect ratio but QHD + resolution. The thickness of the case is 16.85 mm, but the main difference here is a discrete video card, not a GeForce MX450, which is often found in thin laptops GeForce RTX model. It is believed that this is an RTX 3050 or RTX 3050 Ti, and in any of these cases, the Summit E16 Flip can be safely called a gaming laptop, as we already know what such Nvidia adapters are capable of.
