MSI launches the S20 Slider 2 convertible

Teaser
The S20 Slider 2 features Haswell processor and Windows 8, also taking full advantage of the keyboard and sliding cover design.
Codrut Nistor,

MSI has just revealed the S20 Slider 2 convertible, a portable that "eliminates the limitations most people feel when they use tablets" and "incorporates the thin elegant design and full HD resolution of an ultrabook along with the smooth touch control, multi-angle view screen of a tablet." 

The MSI S20 Slider 2 features a keyboard and sliding cover, as well as a long-life embedded battery that provides enough power to the Haswell processor and the 11.6-inch display. These are the detailed specs of the new convertible from MSI:

  • Processor: 4th generation Haswell Core i5 with integrated HD 4600 graphics
  • Memory/Storage: up to 8 GB DDR3-1333; 128 GB mSATA SSD
  • Display: 11.6-inch Full HD IPS with 10 point multi-touch
  • Camera: HD webcam
  • Connectivity: mini HDMI, 2XUSB 3.0, RJ45 LAN, Intel WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, Gigabit Ethernet
  • Operating system: Windows 8.1
  • Battery: embedded 3-cell 3,800 mAh
  • Weight/Dimensions: 2.56 pounds; 11.81X7.74X0.78 inches

While the Slider 2 features a keyboard with 87 keys it does not offer a touchpad, but the multi-touch display or a mouse connected via one of the USB 3.0 ports should be enough for most users. The convertible is rumored to cost around $1,200 but MSI did not provide any pricing and availability information yet.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
