    New touchscreen laptop ...multitouch?

    Not many multitouch laptops out:

    Dell XT2:

    vs

    HP TX2:
    hp TX2 multitouch

    Any more... ?


    Unsure whether to forego multitouch and save a few hundred quid for a standard touchscreen...

    Alos softwarewise I suppose OneNote is great on touchscreens, any paint apps specifically designed for touchscreens?

    Those are the only ones that I could find...

    I was tempted by one of the XT2's, but they are so slow...so I bought one of the TX2's today Awesome little machines - the newer models do not suffer from the heat/noise/speed issues of the previous models, and multi-touch on windows 7 really is amazing to use. Simple things such as scrolling or zooming work in almost any application, and the gestures in album/media center etc are pretty cool.

    Works great as a standard laptop too - keyboard is big enough and nice to type on, although the laptop is a bit heavy for its size.

    Cost me £750 for the 1160ea version - very pleased with it

    Yeah, I bought the HP TX2 in the end too.

    The preloaded vista was crap and so full of bloatware it took ages to boot.
    Bad job HP!

    So I put in a SSD drive, and loaded windows 7.

    Totally amazing machine - only downsides are:

    1. AMD chipset runs hotter than other laptops, and so the fan comes on a fair amount (alot less less using power-saver profile though..)

    2. The screen has a slight grainyness due to the touchscreen overlay,
    but that's not a problem for me.

    I reckon multitouch laptops will come out after Windows 7 is released. There's not much point selling one with Vista, so I think they're biding their time.
