MSI S20 Slider Ultrabook Convertible . Hands-On + New Info

Posted on 26 October 2012, Last updated on 26 October 2012 by

MSI appear to have quietly given the MSI S20 slider an airing. We first saw this back in June in a not-too-professional presentation by themselves but despite that it’s been one that has gained quite a bit of interest. Recent news highlighted a target price (yes, the good old non-committal target price!) of $799-$899.

Engadget and LesNumeriques have news for us…

MSI might just have hit their target price if Les Numeriques is correct. They don’t quote a source but they say the MSI S20 coming in November for €829. A high-end model will come in December for €1049. It’s strange to hear of a manufacturer releasing the cheaper version before the more expensive version. The basic version will be a Core i3 model.

Information, specs, links, images, videos – MSI S20 in our database.

In another hands-on, Engadget have revealed a bit more. They’re being told the MSI S20 will come with Core i5 at $1099 in late November. 4GB RAM, 128GB SSD, FHD screen and a 45Wh battery. Weight hasn’t been confirmed so we’re still assuming it’s near the 1.3KG / 45oz we heard before.

Check out a nice hands-on video and photo-set over at Engadget.

If you can’t wait for the MSI S20, there’s always a few other slider Ultrabooks you can choose from. Which one do fancy?
