Acer has unveiled its first touchscreen Windows 7 laptop. The Aspire 5738PG is a 15-inch model running Windows 7 Home Premium, and will launch on 22 October.

A finger-friendly touchscreen lets you navigate the entire operating system without using a mouse, or even the laptop's multi-touch trackpad. Just think of all the fun you'll have rearranging desktop items.

The rest of the machine is decent for what's essentially a mid-range computer. It's got a 2.2GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor, 4GB of DDR2 RAM, ATI Radeon HD 4570 graphics, a 320GB hard drive, DVD re-writer, a dedicated numeric keypad, 802.11n Wi-Fi, a built-in webcam, HDMI output and four USB 2.0 ports.

It'll launch in the US on 22 October for $800 (about £500). We're waiting to hear back from Acer regarding UK availability. Our mobile newshound Flora's out at an Acer press conference this morning though, so we expect to hear much more when she gets back.
