Reviews for the MSI Slidebook S20
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.

CommentIntel HD Graphics 4000: Processor graphics card in the high end Ivy Bridge models. Offers a different clock speed in the different CPU models (ULV to desktop quad core) and therefore a different performance.
Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that size.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.
