The key feature of this new ultra book from MSI is, in fact, the slider. In exactly a blunder, your portable computer is born-again into a pill. Like every different MSI laptop, it runs a decent processor whereby you'll be talented to fancy your diversion expertise. With a value that starts at more or less $1,000, what else am I competent to get from this new release?
How robust is that the slider and the way long will it last?
The New Ultrabook From MSI: Slider S20
Slider S20 is an upcoming Windows 8 ultraportable that can be pushed back through its 11-inch touch screen. It is like a self-respecting group of tech writers would do.
Actually there is nothing specialty in the S20 through the build quality. You will get it thin, light and manageable in your hand. In respect of a laptop hybrid with a screen and a complicated sliding mechanism that's larger than what will be found on most tablets. The slider feels fine-tuned and smooth. You may have doubt in respect of the slide regarding its strength as it is not so loose.
It contains HDMI, Ethernet and a pair of 3.0 ports. All the configurations in it is so pleasant that it will make you surprise.
The S20 performs with a cramped keyboard like the ASUS Eee Pad Slider which has essentially the same form factor. All the keys are spaced well enough and you will see some noticeable flex in the panel. However, it hearkens back to the netbook era, and not in a good way.
Display performance and basic specs
It is normal for the slider to come with the display. However, MSI isn't sharing too many details about the specs (RAM, storage, etc.). Of course, it's hard for us to critic the recital when all we have to handle is a sample, but we came away reasonably overwhelmed by how rapidly the built-in accelerometer responded when we accustomed the screen orientation. The screen itself also feels receptive, and we had a flat time swiping and beating our way through Win8's Metro UI.
The slider can last for long as well.
