The MSI S20 is a Windows tablet that has a slide-out keyboard which lets you use it like a laptop. MSI introduced the 11.6 inch tablet about a year ago, and now the company is giving the S20 an update.
The new MSI S20 Slider 2 is about the same size and shape as last year’s model, but the new model has an Intel Haswell processor instead of last year’s Ivy Bridge chip.
MSI’s convertible tablet sports an 11.6 inch, 1920 x 1080 pixel IPS display with support for 10-point multitouch input. It has a 4th generation Intel Core i5 processor, supports up to 8GB of RAM, and has an mSATA slot for a solid state drive.
The tablet features 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, and has Gigabit Ethernet and mini HDMI jacks. There are 2 USB 3.0 ports, an SD card slot, a 720p front-facing webcam, and stereo speakers.
MSI’s keyboard sports 87 keys — but there’s no touchpad or palm rest area. You’ll have to use the touchscreen or a mouse to interact with the Windows 8.1 software.
The MSI S20 Slider 2 measures less than 0.8 inches thick and weighs about 2.6 pounds.
According to Techblog.gr, the convertible tablet is expected to sell for around $1199.
