If performance is a priority, the MSI Summit E13 Flip Evo with an Intel processor may be faster for certain tasks compared to the Lenovo IdeaPad 1's AMD processor. The MSI has a higher-resolution touchscreen that can flip to be used as a tablet, offering more versatility and a sharper image due to its higher pixels-per-inch count. It's also lighter and thinner, making it more portable. On the other hand, the IdeaPad 1 has a larger 15.6-inch screen, which could be preferable for those who need more screen real estate and don't mind a slightly heavier laptop. Additionally, the IdeaPad may have a stronger battery life, making it suitable for those who are away from power outlets for extended periods. However, MSI's 2-in-1 feature could provide significant added value if the tablet functionality is important to you. Both come with ample storage and memory, and both are suited for general use and business tasks. For intense gaming or engineering software, neither is top-of-the-line, but they can handle moderate workloads. Give Feedback

LaptopMedia

Alex Iliev | April 2023
"The Lenovo IdeaPad 1 15" is affordable and pretty efficient. At the end of the day, the Lenovo IdeaPad 1 (15″, 2023) is one of the better affordable laptops money can buy right now. It has a decent performance, albeit coming from a CPU that is based on old architecture. Playing low-intensity games is possible but at low to medium settings. We are really happy with the cooling setup, but the main event here is the battery life. We got 9 hours of either Web browsing or video playback, which is a great result. Especially if you compare this device with the ASUS E410."

Allen Ngo | April 2021
"MSI wants to prove that it can do more than just gaming laptops and the Summit E13 Flip is a great example of what the manufacturer is capable of especially in terms of aesthetics and performance. Normally for subnotebooks or convertibles, TDP and performance are often below average as makers want to meet slimmer designs and lower weight targets. The Summit manages to outperform others in its size class and category while still looking sleek and portable in the process. If you want a convertible that won't throttle significantly when under load, then this MSI will be one of the better options you can find."
