It has been almost a year since we first see the cool looking Slidebook S20 from MSI at the CES 2012 in Las Vegas! But now the company has started shipping the smart looking ultrabook that can convert into a tablet device by sliding the keyboard underneath the display. The Slidebook S20 is a proper ultrabook too offering the user a nice sized 11.6 screen, a choice of Intel Processors and a choice of a SSD or a HDD. This machine is running Windows 8 and the screen is of course, providing the user with a ten point capacitive multitouch layer for easy operation.
This is a nice looking device and offers much more than the average ultrabook such as the 11.6 inch screen offering an IPS LCD display 1080P with capacitive 10 points touch screen and a 1920 x 1080 of pixel resolutions. This laptop is running the latest Microsoft Windows 8 Operating System and is powered by the latest third Generation Intel Core i5 Processor or the Intel Pentium Processor depending on the user requirements. There is support for up to 8 GB of internal memory, a choice of a 64 GB or a 128 GB mSATA solid state drive (SSD) or there is a choice of switching to a 2.5” standard hard disk drive (HDD) space for extension.
For networking, there is the built in Giga Ethernet LAN, Bluetooth 4.0 and the Intel 802.11 b/g/n wireless LAN. Other features will include the single Mini HDMI, two fast connecting USB 3.0 ports, an audio jack, RJ-45, power jack and there is even room for a built in HD web camera. As for the size, the Slidebook S20 measures up at 300 mm (W) x 196.5 mm (D) x 19.8 mm (H) and weighs in at a very manageable 1.16 kilos for the SSD version with the 3 cell 3800 mAh battery pack installed that MSI say will provide up to seven hours of power.
MSI have priced the Slidebook S20 to start from a very reasonable $1,000, but of course, this for the base model.
