MSI has developed through its Business & Productivity range of laptops that meet all the requirements of professionals and has at the same time added a touch of daring and style. Presentation of the MSI Summit E13 Flip Evo, a new must have for nomadic microcomputers.

The Summit E13 Flip Evo is a real treat for the senses. Its design exudes an impressive feel of quality. The treatment of the chassis with a very nice brushed effect is undoubtedly for something. But we can also linger on its exceptional 13.4-inch screen (34 cm diagonal) or on the elegant 360 ° hinge which gives it unmatched versatility.

Mobility without (any) compromise

MSI stands for an ambitious vision of technology where users don’t have to make unpleasant compromises. In the case of the Summit E13 Flip Evo, this translates to maximum performance without mobility being sacrificed. It’s ultra-thin (14.9mm thick) and ultralight (1.35 kilograms), features that make it a top partner for all workers on the go.

But this portable portable type must also be robust and reliable, so it has successfully passed the various tests related to the American military standard MIL-STD 810 G. Mechanical vibrations, extreme pressures, humidity, shocks … All kinds of ordeals that guarantee its resistance to the ravages of time.

Who says mobility, also says autonomy and in this area the Summit E13 Flip Evo does well. It can hold up to 20 hours away from a socket, you can use it throughout the day and even consider a nocturnal for the bravest.

Productivity and performance, major assets

MSI has designed a device that stands out for its versatility. It is equipped with a touch screen in 16/10 format with a high definition Full HD + (1,920 dots by 1,200). A major advantage in terms of interactivity, especially since an MSI Stylus Pen is supplied with it.

In addition to the traditional functions that allow you to make annotations, fill in documents or draw, it also acts as a remote control to assist you in your presentations. For even greater productivity, MSI offers an optional USB Type-C docking station that provides fast data transmission and supports 4K video signal.

The Intel Evo platform on which the Summit E13 Flip Evo is based makes it possible to combine a compact chassis and an excellent level of performance. It incorporates a choice of an 11th generation Intel Core i5 or i7 processor with a maximum frequency that can reach 4.8 GHz in certain situations, i.e. 1.5 times greater performance than the previous generation.

It is supported by an Intel Iris Xe graphics chip and coupled with 16 or 32 GB of LPDDR4X-4266 RAM to maintain good efficiency even with a large number of applications open simultaneously or with very RAM-hungry software such as Adobe Photoshop. A 1TB NMVe SSD ensures data storage at speeds much higher than those of the conventional SATA interface.

A secure system …

Security being an essential point for professionals and companies, MSI offers a dual biometric authentication system by infrared or fingerprint, it also allows you to connect to certain websites without using a password through authentication FIDO2.

Enhanced security that we find for the webcam with three levels of protection. An LED indicator indicates whether the camera is activated, the F6 key is used to check its status and a physical button located on the chassis blocks the camera. Finally, to ensure data security, MSI offers a Device Lock function which controls access to the USB ports and to the SD memory card reader in order to avoid possible intrusions.

In addition to the protection of privacy, this HD webcam incorporates a digital noise reduction system that considerably improves capture by further smoothing and brightening the image.

Sound recording is not left out since the MSI AI Noise Cancellation algorithm , based on deep learning , is capable of eliminating in real time all the ambient noise and sound peaks which too often interfere with our video conferencing sessions. An added advantage for those who work, at home or in the office, in noisy and poorly lit environments.

Complete connectivity

What could be more annoying than carrying around a host of adapters all day long, MSI saves you that since the Summit E13 Flip Evo has a complete connection with a USB 3.2 Type-A port, a microSD card reader, an input / mini-jack audio output, one USB 3.2 Type-C port and two Thunderbolt 4 compatible USB 4.0 Type-C ports with charging function.

The Thunderbolt 4 is presented as the ultimate connection. This protocol can handle data transfers of up to 40 Gbits / s, connect two 4K UHD monitors or even support a powerful external graphics card. The integration of this new input / output (I / O) technology brings great versatility to this nomadic machine.Wireless is not left out with the presence of new WiFi 6E standards (compatible with the 6 GHz frequency band) and Bluetooth 5.2.

The MSI Summit E13 Flip Evo presents itself as the ultimate gaming laptop for all demanding users.
