Acer introduced its first laptop with a multitouch display, which the company said is an intuitive way to make computing fun and easy.



The Acer Aspire 5738PB includes a 15.6-inch screen on which two fingers can be placed to manipulate images, write notes or zoom into maps. Multitouch input brings a new dimension to laptop functionality as it offers a natural way for users to interact with PCs, Acer said in a statement.

Acer joins a bunch of PC makers offering multitouch laptops, including Hewlett-Packard and Dell. Lenovo recently introduced a multitouch laptop with a four-finger input capability. Acer will start selling the laptop in the U.S. on Oct. 22, the same day Microsoft releases its next-generation Windows 7 OS. The laptop will come preloaded with Windows 7, which has native touchscreen support.

If you follow some of the new or recent tv dramas you may see someone pointing to a large projection screen and then moving objects on the screen by moving hands across it while standing right in front of it. You may want to show her the MS video on this seen at http://www.microsoft.com/windows/win...aspx?vindex=11

Is that she in your Avatar, having a dry rehearsal to learn these two finger movements?
