MSI has announced the new Slider S20 Ultrabook convertible notebook. For those who don't know, a convertible Ultrabook features some way of turning into a tablet, either by sliding, flipping, or spinning. Due to the name of this machine, you can take a pretty good guess about the method used by MSI to turn this notebook into a tablet.
"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."
The system will feature a full HD 1920x1080 10-point multitouch screen, 8GB of DDR3 RAM, 128GB of SSD storage, and an i5 processor, all while remaining under 2.2 pounds and less than 1 inch thick. It will come with wireless, Ethernet, 2USB 3.0 ports, BlueTooth, miniHDMI, and a 720P HD webcam.
You'll be able to pick the machine up in Q1 of 2013 for a suggested retail price of $1,199.99.
