But overall everything hinges on the design appeal – if you’re keen on the slide-out form factor, the full HD 1920 x 1080p pixel count is a strong card in the Slider S20′s hand. Another appeal is of course the gorgeous display and its superb mechanism. There is just no wrong angle here. You can lay it down flat or move it forward to almost perpendicular position. MSI Slider S20 can be picked up for about $1100.

Nope. Still not sold on the slider form factor. Like we've been saying, Ultrabooks with this design are flawed almost by definition, with the propped-up display usually ruining the typing experience. That's true of the Slidebook S20 too, though the build quality is so lacking that we're almost insulted MSI dared to charge $1,200 for this thing.

On the surface, the $1,199 MSI Slidebook S20 seems like an elegant solution for users looking for a Windows 8 Pro system that offers both the power of a notebook and the portability of a tablet. Unfortunately, MSI's execution is sorely lacking. The lack of any sort of pointing device other than the display is a deal-breaker for us.
