CITY OF INDUSTRY, Calif., Sept. 3, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- MSI, a world leader in producing high performance and innovative laptops, debuted its "Business & Productivity" lineup during the brand's virtual summit, where it also unveiled a new, modern logo for the lineup. The high-performance laptop lineup includes the Summit, Prestige and Modern Series and is outfitted with the powerful 11th Gen Intel processor, offering up to 20 percent faster performance and helping boost productivity and efficiency while working from home.
The lineup also features PCIe Gen 4 SSD and Thunderbolt 4 with USB 4.0 and bilateral noise reduction for mics and speakers, helping reduce ambient noise during video calls. Users can also pair their laptop with Intel iRIS Xe graphics, boasting speeds three times faster than standard integrated graphics.
"This bold new direction is a major milestone for MSI, as we're traditionally known as a high-performance gaming brand," said Derek Chen, MSI's Notebook Division-Global Sales and Marketing Director. "2020 has been full of challenges but they also come with new opportunities. Today we are proud to introduce our first ever line of business and productivity laptops with features to address the needs of our changing workforce."
"We chose the name 'Summit' because it embodies a meeting of leaders, the pinnacle of capability and perseverance," said Henri Chen, MSI's Notebook Division Chief Design Officer. "Its visual profile is informed by minimalist and modern design philosophies and is intended to appeal to the unique tastes of today's business professionals. Our new logo takes a similar approach, with sharp, straight lines and characters that represent the look and feel of the line."
Both feature a slim, aluminium chassis with military-grade durability and AI noise cancellation to automatically eliminate background noise during virtual meetings. The Series includes facial recognition, fingerprint reader, SD card lock and TPM 2.0, providing enterprise-grade security spanning hardware and software even while not in the office.
Summit B Series sets itself apart by combining 10+ hours of battery life in an ultra-portable form-factor and the option to include Intel iRIS Xe, the most powerful integrated Intel graphics ever.
Summit E Series includes a touchscreen display with multi-touch support and comes in an additional wide range of dedicated graphics and includes an infrared camera that supports Windows Hello facial recognition.
The versatile Summit E13 boasts a 360-degree flip display to use as a tablet or easily share projects with teams. It accommodates unique work styles, especially when multitasking while working from home.
