Chassis, connections, screen of the MSI Summit E13 Flip Evo A12MT-012FR

Openable 360° to transform into a tablet, this 2-in-1 ultraportable device has an elegant, discreet and original look with its compact, thin and light CNC-machined Ink Black design with gold edges.

Multi-touch technology equips the screen: by applying the stylus on it (or at least a finger) by pressure/gestures, you can interact with the system and software.
The tactile functionality involves a glossy coating which gives punch to the colors but is subject to reflections in bright environments (e.g. outdoors) compared to an anti-reflective treatment.

The screen stands out with its 16/10 format, displaying more elements in height than the classic 16/9.
But also by its frequency of 120Hz which clearly reinforces the general fluidity compared to the 60Hz standard.
The Full HD screen also has significant viewing angles, both horizontally and vertically.

You can authenticate yourself by fingerprint recognition through the biometric reader and Windows Hello technology.
Since the webcam has Infrared functionality, one can also authenticate by facial recognition.
As a result, we end up here with a 2-factor biometric authentication solution.

Good point on the right, a button allows you to lock the webcam to hide it in order to avoid prying eyes when you are not using it and thus preserve privacy.

When you have difficulty discerning the keys, you can activate the backlighting of the chiclet keyboard.

On the storage side, we find a 512 GB SSD, as with many models on the market.
If, however, this turns out to be too tight, you can use an external storage module. Opting for a USB 3.0/USB-C device in this case represents an advantageous solution to benefit from fast transfers.

In any case, an SSD provides certain advantages compared to a hard drive, such as greater resistance to shocks, lower energy consumption, silent operation and even greater speed.

Starts/stops, software launches, processing or even arrival on online game cards are faster with an SSD than with a hard drive for example.
