Computex is in full swing, and MSI has decided to unveil a hybrid Windows 8 tablet called the “Slider S20”.
The SMI Slider S20 will have a tilting mechanism that locks the 11.6-inch touchscreen at an angle, exposing a keyboard and essentially turning the device into a laptop. MSI announced that the Slider S20 will feature a low-voltage Ivy Bridge chipset, 4GB of RAM, Bluetooth 4.0, HDMI, two USB 3.0 ports, and a battery life that promises up to 8 hours of usage.
The MSI Slider S20 is expected to launch in Europe in September for a hefty 899 Euros (about $1,121) for its Ivy Bridge model. A lower-powered version of the tablet will also be available for 799 Euros (about $996).
