    I just got a Lenovo laptop for my sister in-laws sister. I must say I really like Lenovo laptops now. Its not to flashy but really has a style all its own.

    I wonder who will want a multi touch laptop though. The fine details of a modern PC desktop have so many options that these seem more of a novelty then a functional useful PC. Perhaps this will lead to the LCARS menu system that we all wish existed... :D

    Do you really want to be using hand control on a 22inch screen, much less a 36inch screen?

    I think all of these companies who keep pushing touch technology, need to be put in front of a computer for a week, with no mouse or touchpad, and forced to only use touch. Care to place bets how long they last before they scream for a mouse?

    Imagine using an ATM terminal for all of your controls on a computer. Waving your hand all over the screen... Yeah, thought so. It's a fail to start technology. Once people use it once they will see they paid a bundle for nothing.

    i like multi-touch systems, but their applications are gonna be specific, if something works better with a mouse, use a mouse, if its better with a keyboard, use a keyboard or both, will productivity be boosted if a well designed multi-touch app/screen is added? then go, I doubt it will replace anything, its just like the mouse, its an added bonus, but you would never give up your keyboard for it and vice versa :), if multi touch was a fail then apple's iphone and ipod touch failed when they launched. i think it will have its place if implemented correctly

    What I wonder is whether the multitouch on this will still be using the resistive touchscreen of the bog standard X200 tablet or a capacitve one like on the Dell Inspiron XT2. Any clarification?

    i do find this tech rather savy! i would like to get this tech and dule screen it with me projector and use the touch for everything! what would be impressive tho is if you could use this tech as a mouse/keyboard and even use it for just this without it being a netbook or laptop! having a wirless setup with this would be perfect for me!!!!!

    I'd want multitouch for mine thanks... Nothing like using a CAD program or perhaps Photoshop if I could manipulate stuff by touching it....
