The MSI S20 is one of the first slider-style ultrabooks, with a full QWERTY keyboard which hides away behind the display when you just want to use the computer in tablet mode.
MSI is introducing the S20 at the Computex show in Taiwan this week.
The notebook has an 11.6 inch display, measures less than 0.8 inches thick, and weighs about 2.9 pounds.
MSI includes USB 3.0 and HDMI ports, Bluetooth 4.0, and a 10-point capacitive multitouch display.
It’s powered by an Intel Ivy Bridge processor and the ultrabook is designed to run Windows 8 — which means you probably won’t be able to get your hands on one until this fall. There’s no word on how much the MSI S20 will cost when it hits the streets… if it hits the streets.
MSI does have a habit of showing off products at trade shows that never actually make it to market. But Intel is pushing ultrabooks pretty hard, and partnering with every PC maker imaginable to bring new form factors such as convertible tablet-style ultrabooks to market. So something tells me we’re more likely to see the MSI S20 make it to retail than some of MSI’s more unusual concepts from years past.
