If you misplace one of MSI’s high-end productivity and business laptops, you should be able to find it much easier now. The redesigned Summit laptops feature a new model, the Summit E14 Flip Evo, which uses Tile’s Bluetooth trackers, similar to HP and Lenovo computers.
Users can leverage Tile’s smartphone app to hunt down their missing PC after activating the included Windows Tile program (which requires an internet connection).
According to an MSI representative, the distance from which the smartphone can track the laptop changes depending on the phone’s Bluetooth version.
Tracking, for example, will operate up to 400 feet away with Bluetooth 5.0, according to MSI. Tile’s Ring My PC function, which lets the PC produce noise if it’s within Bluetooth range even if it’s turned off, will be available on MSI’s new Summit laptops.
Tile also has a proximity meter that may display the most recent monitored position of the misplaced PC. When someone with a smartphone using the Tile app comes close to the laptop, the Tile Network can notify users.
The Summit series joins HP’s EliteBook 1000, EliteBook 800 G8, and Zbook Firefly G8 lineup of corporate and power-oriented productivity laptops.
Like the revised Summit E14 Evo, Summit E13 Flip Evo, Summit E16 Flip, and Summit E16 Flip Evo, the Summit E14 Flip Evo has an Intel 12th Gen Core i7-1260P processor.
Unlike the rest of the Summit range, which offers both inbuilt Intel Iris Xe graphics and an upgrade to an Nvidia RTX 3050 or 3050 Ti laptop GPU, the Summit E14 Flip Evo only has integrated Iris Xe graphics. On the other hand, the Summit’s screen has the greatest resolution of the bunch: 2880×1800.
The 14-inch convertible has a PCIe 4.0 NVMe SSD with a capacity of up to 1TB and up to 32GB of LPDDR5-4800 RAM.
