Product Overview

MSI Summit E14 is a high-end business laptop in MSI's new premium Summit series. Like the larger E15 introduced at the same time, the Summit E14 is powered by 11th-gen Intel Core U-series processors with discrete NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650Ti graphics in a compact aluminum chassis marked by a clean, professional design.
In a slim chassis under 2/3 of an inch thin, MSI has packed not only the aforementioned components but also a selection of I/O options, including dual Thunderbolt 4 and WiFi 6. The Summit E14 also features DDR4 3200MHz memory and M.2 NVMe PCIe Gen4 x4 SSD. However, the 14-inch model misses the full-size HDMI port found in the E15.
Alongside the Summit E14 and E15, MSI also introduced slightly lower-powered Summit B14 and B15.
While the Summit series sit at the top of MSI's laptop lineup, Prestige and Modern series round up the range.

Sentiment Score 67%
Reviewers from notebookcheck have found the following***:
MSI Summit E14 packs a ton of power in an Ultrabook-size chassis. The extra-bright 600-nit display is also a plus and worthy mention. Just be prepared for the heat and noise that entail. Battery life is also poorer than most other Ultrabooks due to the more powerful GPU inside.
