The MSI Summit E14 Flip Evo is a midrange, convertible 2-in-1 laptop that functions as both a laptop and a tablet with a 14-inch touchscreen display. Its highlights include a modern Intel i7 processor suitable for general use and light engineering tasks, integrated graphics that can handle casual gaming but not intensive gaming, and a solid build quality. It offers a high-resolution IPS display with good color accuracy, making it a good option for creative tasks that don't require the most powerful GPU. It's moderately lightweight and has a decent battery life, making it fairly portable. However, if you require a machine for heavy 3D rendering, machine learning, or intensive gaming, you may need to look for a device with a dedicated GPU and more specialized specifications. The MSI Summit E14 Flip Evo comes with ample storage, a reasonable amount of RAM, and a backlit keyboard, balancing performance and convenience for business and everyday productivity. Give Feedback

Ratings by Category

Portability:
4.5
PerfectRec’s portability rating takes into account the volume and thickness of the laptop as well as its weight.
General Use:
4.4
The MSI Summit E14 Flip Evo is a solid choice for general use, offering a balance of a strong CPU and sufficient RAM for smooth multitasking, along with a high-quality touch screen that provides sharp images and vivid colors, making it suitable for various tasks and media consumption. It also stands out for its portability, thanks to its compact size and light weight, paired with a decent battery life that can support typical day-to-day activities without an immediate need for charging.
Content Creation:
4.4
PerfectRec’s Content Creation Score takes into account the many different features of the laptop that make it more or less suitable for photo editing, and video editing work. In addition to a strong emphasis on overall performance, this score also places very high importance on screen quality. Heat management, storage, keyboard and speaker quality are also incorporated, with fan noise rounding out this score.
General Use Screen Quality:
4.4
The general use screen score is based on the screen technology, contrast ratio, resolution, brightness, color gamut and color accuracy. This score does not take into account specialized display features for specific use cases, such as high refresh rate for gaming.
Software Development:
4.3
PerfectRec’s Software Development Score takes into account the many different features of the laptop that make it more or less suitable for software development. In addition to a strong emphasis on overall performance, this score also places very high importance on screen quality. Heat management, storage, keyboard and speaker quality are also incorporated, with fan noise rounding out this score.
Engineering & Design:
4.2
The MSI Summit E14 Flip Evo's high-performance Intel i7 processor, ample RAM, and Iris Xe graphics make it well-suited for demanding engineering and design tasks, while the IPS touchscreen with high resolution and color accuracy supports detailed visual work. Despite its strong performance, the tradeoff comes with moderate battery life and portability, although the quality of the keyboard and build make it a reliable choice for professionals who also appreciate the flexibility of a 2-in-1 design.
Build Quality:
4.2
PerfectRec’s Build Quality Score incorporates case materials, display and keyboard flex, hinge quality, chassis rigidity, and overall reliability. Our assessment of build quality includes many details that are difficult to quantify. Our laptop experts use their best judgment to produce the final score.
Keyboard Quality:
4.2
The Keyboard Quality score is based on the PerfectRec experts’ assessment of tactile feedback, typing comfort, keyboard reliability and typing noise.
Battery Life:
4.1
PerfectRec’s Battery Life rating is based on hours of battery life in typical usage scenarios.
Gaming & AI:
3.7
The MSI Summit E14 Flip Evo is only fair for gaming and 3D because it uses integrated graphics, which are less powerful than dedicated gaming GPUs, and it has a standard screen refresh rate of 60Hz which isn’t as smooth as higher rates often preferred by gamers.
Operating Noise:
3.0
PerfectRec’s Operating Noise Score is based on fan noise measurements. Laptops with a fanless design, such as Macbooks, receive the maximum score.

Allen Ngo | July 2022
"The MSI Summit E14 Flip convertible review: a legit alternative to HP, Dell or Lenovo. Instead of taking the 13-inch Summit E13 Flip and simply enlarging it for a 14-inch form factor, the Summit E14 Flip is the full chassis redesign we've been looking for. It loses some of the golden trims of its smaller sibling, but the gains in rigidity and build quality are arguably worth it especially from a professional standpoint where reliability takes priority. It doesn't quite feel as strong as the HP Spectre just yet, but it's certainly getting close."
