MSI to show Sketchbook concept at Computex

Taiwanese PC maker MSI is showing off a unique concept netbook at a pre-Computex event. Called Sketchbook, it has a touchscreen display and a detachable QWERTY keyboard that flips over to reveal a large tablet input area with a stylus that can be alternatively attached to the screen. There is no specific technical information on the device, which is meant for graphics artists.

It's likely MSI will bundle creative software with the Sketchbook that will allow users to scroll around an image using their fingers on the touchscreen or dedicated buttons underneath it. More information on the unique netbook is expected to come at the formal start of the Computex show which kicks off on June 1st. [via NotebookItalia]
