Looking for laptop with touch screen capabilitiy

by nanllyn / July 2, 2007 9:50 PM PDT

I'm hoping someone can help me find the laptop I want as I'm having a hard time. I recently saw one of the HP TouchSmart IQ770 PC (all in one media pc with the touch screen). I really liked the computer and the touch screen and being able to write notes on the screen, but I need something portable. I have looked at Tablet PCs but they really aren't media computers and they are 14" or less screens. Here are some of my wishes: 17 inch screen (would go for a 15.4 if needed), a touch screen, preferrably Duo Core, preferrably AMD but Intel will do, would like 2 gigs of ram. I know this may be very hard to find but would like a wireless N setup but can add that if needed.

What I really need help with is finding a laptop with a 17" screen and touch screen with tablet pc capabilities. I have spent hours online trying to find it but have been unsuccessful. Does anyone know if they make something like that? Also I like the added software HP has but it could be any brand that has good ratings.

Thanks for helping me find the computer and your suggestions. I really appreciate it.

To Be truthful...

They don't make anything like your asking for in a tablet form factor. Meaning your specs with Microsoft's Tablet and Touch Technology. Now your specs are impressive, and it looks like you may need to say with a normal laptop form factor, which should be just fine, unless you absolutely need to have the MS Tablet and Touch Tech.. In which case your specs will need to be re-evaluated.

17" touch screen.

You are looking more at a customized "Commercial" PC. You need a Mother Board which supports touch screen, and the touch screen utility program. Then you also have to have application programs which support touch screen. Ask Dell whether they can customize one for you. Be prepared to pay $$$$ !
