Touch-Screen Laptops

Touch-Screen
Clear all
Touch screen laptops have become a lot more common since the release of Windows® 8. Microsoft® did an extensive redesign of its desktop operating system and introduced an interface you can navigate with touch gestures as well as keyboard and mouse. Using a touch-enabled computer display is as easy as using a smartphone or tablet. You can interact with apps and UI elements by tapping, swiping, pinching, and zooming. Staples® carries a wide selection of laptops with touch-enabled displays from different brands.

Choose From Different Types of Touch Screen Laptops
Touch screen displays allow manufacturers to produce Windows laptops in different form factors. Besides regular-sized notebooks, you can also find this type of display on slim and lightweight ultrabooks. Touch screens are the primary input hardware for Windows tablets. The product category that benefits most from this feature is the 2-in-1 laptop segment. Also called hybrid PCs, these devices can easily transform from traditional laptops to tablets and back again. Some achieve this by packing keyboards with 360-degree hinges that flip out of the way. Other convertible laptops have detachable keyboards. Windows is not the only operating system you can find on laptops with touch screens. A Chromebook™ may also use this type of display. This laptop runs Google's Chrome OS™, a lightweight cloud-based operating system that emphasizes web apps.

Consider Display Size and Resolution When Shopping for Touch Screen Laptops
Screen size and quality are other important factors to consider when comparing laptops with touch screen displays. While most of the mobile PCs in this category have displays measuring between 12 and 14 inches, you can find models with screens that are as small as 10 inches and as big as 17 inches. Small laptops are portable and easier to use in tablet mode but widescreen models offer more screen space to enjoy movies, open multiple windows side-by-side, and use productivity apps comfortably.

Most laptops have LCD screens. Choose a unit with an IPS LCD to enjoy vivid colors, fast refresh rates, and wide viewing angles. The model you pick should also have an HD screen. Look for a minimum resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels for displays that are 12 inches or smaller. Full HD or 1080p displays produce sharper images. If you need a touch screen that shows more details, get a laptop with a 4K display.

Do Touch Screen Laptops Require High-End Processors?
No. Touch screen displays do not require faster or more powerful processors than non-touch models. They work on laptops with Intel® Pentium™, Atom™, and Core™ i3 processors. You should only consider models with higher processors if you need them for resource-intensive desktop applications.

Can You Use Stylus Pens on Touch Screen Laptops?
Yes. Since most laptops use capacitive touch screen displays, they can recognize inputs from fingers as well as capacitive stylus pens. Consider a digitizer pen if you want more precise control. Digital artists should consider special pressure-sensitive pens for best results.

Are There Touch Screen Laptops for Gaming?
Yes. Just like it does for a regular laptop, a multi-touch display makes it easier to navigate the user interface of a gaming laptop. Gaming laptops usually sport high-resolution displays, discrete graphics cards, and powerful processors.
