Unfortunately, the display unit was non-functional, but the gadget blog says the machine feels bulky. Although MSI hasn't specified a market for the machine, it's fair to assume the SketchBook convertible will mostly be aimed at students, hobbyists, and possibly even graphics professionals – all of whom might appreciate a rugged design, so perhaps that's part of its heft. Regardless, since this is an early reference piece, the company might trim down future builds.
No price or release date has been mentioned, but the system is expected to appear at Computex, so additional details might be shared then.
