The new MSI Summit E13 Flip Evo is a thin and light laptop with a 13.4 inch, 1920 x 1200 pixel display, a 360-degree hinge, support for pen input, and up to a 13th-gen Intel Core i7 Raptor Lake processor.
Meanwhile folks looking for a higher-resolution display might want to consider the slightly larger MSI Summit E14 Flip Evo. It has similar specs for the most part, but its 14 inch display has a resolution of 2880 x 1800 pixels.
MSI hasn’t announced pricing for the new laptops yet, but they should both hit the streets later this year.
Both models support up to 32GB of LPDDR5-4800 memory (which is soldered to the motherboard and not user upgradeable) and both have a single M.2 slot for a PCIe Gen 4 NVMe SSD.
Other features include 1080p IR webcams with support for Windows Hello face recognition, fingerprint sensors, backlit keyboards, stereo 2W speakers, WiFi 6E and Bluetooth 5.3, and 65W USB-C power adapters.
The laptops each have:
- 2 x Thunderbolt 4 ports (with DisplayPort and USB power delivery)
- 1 x USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-A port
- 1 x microSD card reader
- 1 x 3.5mm audio jack
There are a few differences though. Not only does the Summit E14 Flip Evo have a larger, higher-resolution display, but it also supports up to an Intel Core i7-1370P processor and has a 72 Wh battery, while the 13.4 inch model tops out at Core i7-1360P chip and 70 Wh battery.
They’re also different sizes and weights:
- Summit Flip 14 Evo: 300 x 222 x 15mm (11.8″ x 8.7″ x 0.6″) / 1.35kg (3 pounds)
- Summit Flip 13 Evo: 314 x 228 x 18mm (12.4″ x 9″ x 0.7″) / 1.6kg (3.5 pounds).
