MSI has been ever so vigilant in expanding its brand portfolio with more devices that are suited to more and more customers. Their latest addition is the MSI Summit E16 Flip, which comes with a large 16-inch screen that is paired with a proprietary pen from MSI, for the artist within you. As the laptop has Flip in its name, you guessed correctly, we are talking about a convertible. This allows for greater usability in multiple conditions because sometimes a tablet is just more useful than a laptop.
Without revealing anything more, here is our quick overview of the new MSI Summit E16 Flip.
MSI Summit E16 Flip – Full Specs
In their MSIology event, MSI has chosen the Fibonacci spiral as the main inspiration for the Summit E16 Flip. They talked about how proportions can make or break a device, which definitely holds some truth. With an aluminum unibody that ensures sturdiness and rigidity and a sleek design, this device looks fantastic and is set to draw the attention to you and your work. The new MSI brand logo is very well placed, both on the lid and below the display. It feels fresh and new while still resembling the old one. A 360-degree hinge allows for great flexibility which when paired with the proprietary MSI pen, will make your creativity flow and make your art come to life.
The display of choice is a 16-inch QHD+ IPS panel. It has a 16:10 aspect ratio, which is getting more and more popular within the productivity laptop space. The narrower ratio gives more room on the Y-axis, which allows for more apps to be fit on the screen, which is essential for multitaskers, as many productivity apps have tons of menus and settings panels, which have to go somewhere.
Specifications and features
Powering this beautiful machine is the Core i7-1185G7 from Intel. The CPU is also part of the Intel Evo platform, which promises increased performance and stability. Tiger Lake has been a massive improvement for Team Blue, with them even getting ready to unveil more powerful H-series chips in the near future. While the Core i7-1185G7 isn’t the most powerful chip ever, it has more than enough to handle your work and even more. Taking care of the graphics is the Iris Xe Graphics G7, which is by far the best iGPU on the market right now. But if that doesn’t satisfy you enough, fear not, as there is a discrete GPU available. The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 (Laptop) is what will be inside of this magnificent device and even if it has half of the performance of the RTX 3060, it will still be a beast for both productivity and gaming.
Some features that the laptop has are a fingerprint reader as well as a backlit keyboard. I/O wise- you get two Thunderbolt 4 ports, two USB Type-A 3.2 Gen.2 ports, a microSD card reader, and a 3.5mm audio jack. Support for Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5 is also present.
