MSI announced a new ultrabook convertible known as the Slider S20. This new ultrabook runs on Windows 8 and features an Intel Core i5 processor. As you may expect from its name, the Slider S20 utilizes a slide-out keyboard that enables it to convert from an ultrabook to a tablet.
Other key specifications of the Slider S20 include a 16:9 1920x1080 full HD 10-point touch screen, 8GB of DDR3 memory and 128GB of SSD storage. The Slider S20 weighs 2.2 pounds and measures less than 1 inch thick. Connectivity features include a Jackson Peak Wireless adapter, Ethernet, 2 USB3 ports, Bluetooth capability, mini HDMI-out connector and an integrated 720P HD webcam.
“Many users prefer the mobility of a tablet, but still need the processing power of an actual laptop computer,” said Andy Tung, vice president of sales for MSI US. “MSI’s S20 Ultrabook Convertible solves that problem by combining the best of both worlds, giving users the choice of using it as a tablet or as a laptop.”
MSI plans to ship the Slider S20 in the first quarter of 2013 for about $1,199.99.
