Question

Can you buy an 11.6" touchscreen ultrabook in the UK?

by LiquidSpurs / March 19, 2013 4:08 AM PDT

There are plenty of 11.6" touchscreen ultrabooks out there - e.g. Asus UX21A, or Acer S7-191.

But as far as I can see, none of them are available in the UK!

Does anyone know why not? Or more importantly, when one of them might be available in the UK?

Thanks for doing that, but that is the UX21E the does not have a touchscreen. I am looking for the UX21A which does have a touchscreen.

Just giving this a bump. Some helpful answers above but none of these are genuine 11.6" touchscreen ultrabooks such as the Asus UX21A, or Acer S7-191.

Will we ever see one in the UK?

May have to import one.

As you know how the marketing and decisions are made, at times those that must have "this" have to import it.

My reply was off a bit as I am not in the UK but folk at work go there often enough for me to understand this a little.
