MSI's Slider Tablet Solves Problem of Typing on Craptastic Virtual Keyboards
As far as we know, the Slider S20 is the first Ultrabook model that pulls double-duty as a tablet device. It's powered by Intel's Chief River CULV platform, supports an array of peripherals and I/O ports (USB 3.0, Bluetooth 4.0, HDMI), and runs Windows 8.
As for the display, MSI claims ten points of multi-touch for those times when you feel like getting touchy-feely with the OS. When it's time to hammer out a TPS report, however, just slide the display back to reveal a physical keyboard and punch out characters like you would on a traditional laptop.
MSI is keeping mum on launch details, though chatter around the Web suggests the Slider S20 will range in price from around $1,000 to over $1,000, depending on configuration. Look for this one to ship later this year once Windows 8 debuts, obviously.
