Remember that MSI tablet with the slide-out keyboard we saw at Computex? The device made an encore performance at CES this week—only now, it's much closer to release.
MSI told our Editor in Chief that the Slidebook S20 will be available later this month in the U.S. at a starting price of $1,299. That entry fee will apparently get you an 11.6" 1080p IPS panel, a Core i5 processor, a 128GB solid-state drive, and 8GB of DDR3 memory. We didn't get a size and weight this time, but according on what we heard at Computex, the Slidebook S20 should weigh in at 2.8 lbs. Oh, and USB 3.0 connectivity is included. This looks more like a shrunken ultrabook than a tricked-out tablet.
Still, the Slidebook S20 lacks a touchpad to accompany its sliding keyboards. Users will have to rely on the touch screen or plug in a mouse if they want to get serious work done in Windows 8's desktop interface.
