Now this is what I'm talking about. Still think I would prefer the Dell XPS 12, but this is nice too. Should be around $1100 I assume.

What can you do with it that an ultrabook can't do?

Does anyone know if it has a stylus included like the Sony Vaio Duo 11? I may choose this over the Sony one if it includes a stylus.

Umm my friend bought a Vaio Duo 11 (i5 model) about a week ago and it came with a stylus. I had a go with it and I thought the 1080p screen was absolutely mental, and the touch screen felt smoother and more responsive than even touch products from Apple (incoming hate from this statement probably, but I rate the responsiveness of Apple products pretty well even if I hate the company).

Also it can play World in Conflict on high @ 1080 with AA off, which was pretty amazing imo.

Well that's good to know, I actually consider buying the Sony Vaio Duo 11 but it costs around 1500 USD just for the i5 + 4GB RAM model in South East Asia so if this MSI Slidebook S20 is cheaper and has a stylus as well I may buy it instead.

I just received a reply from MSI, the MSI Slidebook S20 does not come with a stylus:



Guess I'll have to buy the Sony Vaio Duo 11 then.
