Inside MSI Summit E13 Flip Evo – disassembly and upgrade options

This 13-incher proved to be one of the most versatile convertibles on the market. Plus, it comes with a beefy battery and a humongous amount of performance.

1. Remove the bottom plate

To take this notebook apart, you need to remove its bottom panel. You can do that by undoing four Phillips-head screws, two of which are hidden beneath the rear rubber feet. Then, pry the panel with a plastic tool.

2. Battery

Here, the battery has a capacity of 70Wh.

3. Мemory and storage

Expectedly, the memory of this notebook is soldered to its motherboard. On the other hand, there is an M.2 PCIe x4 slot for storage upgrades.

MSI Summit E13 Flip in-depth review

As with the 15-inch device from this series that we've reviewed recently, the Summit E13 Flip Evo aims to provide a balance between aesthetics and performance. Ultimately, this 13-incher is MSI's best effort to battle the Dell XPS 13 9310 2-in-1. From what we saw, beating the XPS 13 in its own game won't be that difficult of a task, but there is a lot of room for the Summit to fail.

Hello, great write up.. One question: When you guys had the laptop, in performance mode when you manually select the fan to run in boost cooler mode. Did you guys hear like a quick 1 second buz/click in the fans as they initiated rotation?
Basically, select boost cooler mode, it clicks/buzzes for 1 second and fans come on top max speed.
I’m just wondering if there is something wrong with mine or its normal for this model.
