Five of the best touchscreen laptops

Article comments

Here is our pick of some of the best touchscreen laptops on the market today. Check out more business and laptop reviews


Touchscreen technology has been around on various formats for decades now. Remember Tablet PCs? Or even earlier, think information kiosks covered in grimy fingerprints typically found in museums or other tourist hotspots.

Yet it has only been in the last few years that touch computing has really taken off, since the Apple iPhone put touchscreens in most people's pockets.

Part of the reason for its new-found popularity is the vast improvement in the ergonomic design of touchscreen devices. Earlier incarnations were clunky at best that forced users to apply more pressure on the device.

Today, touchscreens are more sensitive and receptive. Microsoft Surface, which was inspired by the sci-fi film Minority Report, used new multi-touch technology that allowed users to interact with multiple objects on the screen at once. You can touch, drag, stretch, shrink and flick away objects on the screen, just as if they were real. The device was ground-breaking because it allowed users to imagine a world where they could do away with a mouse, keyboard or trackpad.

Although the technology is still in its infancy, if you want to buy a touch screen laptop there is more choice today than ever.

Here is our selection of the best touchscreen devices on offer.
