CES 2013: 9 Cool Gadgets
January 05, 2013 09:06 AM Consumer Electronics Show is a tech smorgasbord. Here are nine products that attest to the show's overwhelming variety.
MSI Slider S20: Powerful, Compact, Pricey Convertible
While some of the Ultrabooks at CES, such as the Samsung models on the previous page, will focus on slimmed-down iterations of the traditional laptop form factor, there should be an array of convertible devices as well. One will be the MSI Slider S20, which, after being previewed last summer, will finally hit the market in Q1 of this year. Combining a tablet and a laptop into one device, the Slide S20 sports an 11.6-inch, 1920 x 1080-pixel touchscreen, 128 GB of SSD storage, 8 GB of DDR3 RAM, two USB 3.0 ports, and an integrated 720p webcam. At a light 2.2 pounds, the computer packs a lot of power into a small package -- but at $1,199.99, the device will be among the pricier Windows 8 Ultrabooks on the market.
