Chassis, connectors, screen of the MSI Summit E15 A11SCST-088FR

With its sturdy black aluminum frame conforming to the American military resistance standard MIL-STD-810G, this thin and light Ultrabook has an elegant and professional look.

It runs on Windows 10 Pro, a more complete system than classic Windows 10 thanks to its advanced network management and security tools such as BitLocker.

You can authenticate on the system by fingerprint recognition thanks to the integrated biometric reader, via Windows Hello technology.

This creative gamer-oriented Ultrabook is well equipped in terms of connectivity with no less than 2 USB 4 Type-C Thunderbolt 4 (which is still rare), Wi-Fi ax modules ( more recent and efficient than Wi-Fi ac ) and Bluetooth 5.1 for wireless remote connections and communications, an audio port, a practical HDMI video output for easy connection to a monitor or TV for example as well as 2 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers. performing up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 when connecting USB 3.0 devices.
To take advantage of Ethernet, you can turn to a USB-C to RJ-45 adapter .

A backlighting system is fitted to the chiclet keyboard, which is practical for discerning its keys in the dark.
On the other hand, it does not accommodate a numeric keypad on the right even though it is a standard 15-inch, which will disappoint some.

Thanks to its IPS technology, the screen offers more faithful than average colorimetry as well as significant vertical and horizontal viewing angles. It also lends itself very well to displaying High Definition content such as videos due to its Full HD definition and its 16: 9 format. Anti-reflective coating, the screen also provides better visibility in bright environments (eg outdoors) than a shiny panel.

Performance, battery life of the MSI Summit E15 A11SCST-088FR

The MSI Summit E15 A11SCST-088FR is an elegant and high-performance compact High Definition laptop designed for versatile mobile use but also for creators and gamers.

It embeds the dedicated GeForce GTX 1650 Ti NVIDIA Turing graphics card, here in Max-Q edition , which speeds up processing in software using GPU computing power, such as Adobe Photoshop / Premiere and Sony Vegas.

In addition, the GeForce GTX 1650 Ti Max-Q is capable of running many games for a concession under graphics demanding titles to achieve good gameplay.

In practice, the GeForce GTX 1650 Ti Max-Q is activated / deactivated automatically and in real time by NVIDIA Optimus technology, depending on the tasks performed.

Optimus gives maximum priority to the Intel Iris Xe solution integrated into the processor, while its services are more modest because it is energy efficient and therefore promotes battery life.
In the matter with regard to the integrated components, including the battery, bet while waiting for more concrete tests on approximately 10 hours of operation on battery in light use.

The GeForce GTX 1650 Ti Max-Q is therefore activated by Optimus to perform graphics processing that is too heavy for the Intel Iris Xe. With one or the other, you can obviously watch photos and videos.

The Iris Xe that we tested can also run games that are not too greedy as long as we make a few adjustments.

The Intel Iris Xe is housed in the low power Tiger Lake Quad Core i7-1185G7 tested by us .
It is here coupled with a large amount of RAM of 32 GB much higher than the average which allows to see well ahead and is appreciable under the treatments.

This duo delivers good general performance capable of satisfying many users.
That said, to often perform processing that requires processor resources in a less mobile environment, it will be better to opt for a PC based on a low consumption processor.

Integrated SSD storage provides much better fluidity and responsiveness on a daily basis than a simple hard drive. It guarantees, for example, much faster processing as well as starting / stopping and launching of games / software, or even faster arrival on the cards of online games.

An SSD is indeed much faster than a hard drive while being more energy efficient, more resistant to shocks and silent. In addition here, the SSD offers a large capacity of 1 TB easily competing with hard drives.

And if you need even more space, an M.2 slot is free to add a second SSD.

Finally, thanks to its lightness and finesse, this creative gamer-oriented Ultrabook is easy to carry. That said, you have to expect noise and heat when this laptop PC is pushed strongly (eg processing, games).
