After testing a lot of products, we have selected the 8 best touchscreen enabled / multi touch business laptops for 2018 which are mentioned below. In our experiments, we have found these products most consistent in performance and true value for the money.
ASUS Transformer Book T101HA-C4-GR 10.1-Inch
The 10.1″ Transformer Book T101HA Multi-Touch 2-in-1 Notebook from Asus is a compact and portable computing solution for users who like to take their work or entertainment with them on-the-go. It’s powered by a 1.44 GHz Intel Atom x5-Z8350 Quad-Core processor and 4GB of DDR3 RAM that’ll let you efficiently multitask and quickly access frequently used files and programs.
For storage,… it’s equipped with 64GB of eMMC flash storage. Should that not be enough, you can attach external storage solutions using its USB ports or use its microSD card reader, which can also be used for quickly transferring files between mobile devices.
The 10.1″ screen, driven by integrated Intel HD graphics, is built with an IPS (In-Plane Switching) panel and has a 1280 x 800 resolution. With touch capability, you’ll be able to utilize touch gestures and commands to enhance its accessibility and productivity. Connect to the Internet via dual-band 802.11ac Wi-Fi and pair compatible wireless peripherals with Bluetooth 4.0 technology.
Microsoft Surface Book 13.5″ i5 256GB Multi-Touch
The Microsoft Surface Book packs high-end components, including new Intel processors and optional Nvidia graphics, into a smart, slim body. Some components and most of the battery are hidden in the base, so the tablet half is lighter. The high-res screen looks great, and the included stylus pen is excellent.
What good is a touchscreen tablet… and stylus if you can’t really draw? Despite a teenage comic book collection thousands of issues deep (dating roughly 1985-1991), I never had much of a knack as a visual artist, beyond idle doodling. Sure, I’ve got a few standby sketches I can whip up when the need arises, from the googly-eyed generic newspaper strip character to some forced perspective boxes, but does that mean I need a $1,499-and-up laptop-plus-stylus Microsoft Surface Book that practically begs to be used by someone with actual artistic talent?
Microsoft’s other new system, the less expensive Surface Pro 4 , is clearly intended as a full-time tablet that can double as a part-time laptop, thanks to its clever (but sold separately) keyboard cover. And in practice, the Surface Pro is better as a tablet, and certainly great to draw on, but it doesn’t do as much for the rest of us who live in the slightly more buttoned-down world of offices, meetings, word processing and all the things that work best on a traditional laptop.
Acer Aspire R 15 Convertible Laptop, 7th Gen Intel Core i7
While laptops with full HD screens and 2-in-1s that easily bend back into tablets can be had for anything under $700, in most cases you’ll be compromising power output or build quality. The latest Acer Aspire R 15, a mid-range convertible-hybrid laptop, bucks that trend, with new features that push it from average to top of the class. Last year, Acer pushed into the market the Aspire R14.
Which stood out as one of the reasonably priced,… large-screen laptops with a multi-mode form factor. At the time, we didn’t like it for its low resolution screen, as most midrange laptops were flaunting higher-resolution screens, some even had 4K displays. Acer rectifies those shortcomings with the Aspire R15 in way of a bigger 1080p HD screen, all-day battery life, and adds a USB-C port.
All that, along with a seventh-generation Intel Core i7 processor, a dedicated graphics card and faster dual-band Wi-Fi, help the latest Acer Aspire R15 stand out as a Top Pick for midrange convertible-hybrid laptops. The tepid-silver Aspire R15 measures 0.79 by 14.59 by 10.09 inches (HWD), and weighs 4.74 pounds. That’s pretty slim for a laptop with a 15-inch screen, Acer Aspire R14 (0.73 by 13.5 by 9.6 inches; 4.07 pounds), justified by the larger screen.
Samsung XE510C24-K01US Chromebook Pro
Expand your capabilities with the 12.3″ 32GB Multi-Touch 2-in-1 Chromebook Pro from Samsung, which features a built-in stylus that you can use to draw, take notes, and interact with apps and games. When not needed, simply slide it back into its dedicated slot so you won’t lose it. The Chromebook Pro is powered by a 900 MHz Intel Core m3-6Y30 dual-core processor, 4GB of 1866 MHz LPDDR3 RAM, and integrated Intel graphics.
This system is equipped with 32GB… of eMMC storage. Should you need more, you can connect external storage solutions using its USB ports as well as its microSD card reader. Its 12.3″ display has a 2400 x 1600 resolution for crisp and clear content reproduction. Furthermore, with multi-touch support, you’ll be able to utilize touch gestures and functions to improve its accessibility and your productivity.
The 2-in-1 design with a 360° hinge provides you with multiple viewing options, allowing you to adjust it to fit your preference or current application. Other integrated features include 80.211ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.1, a webcam, speakers, microphones, and a 3.5mm mic and headphone combo jack. The operating system installed is Chrome OS.
Dell XPS9560-7001SLV-PUS 15.6″ Ultra Thin
The world’s smallest 15-inch laptop packs powerhouse performance and a stunning InfinityEdge display — all in our most powerful XPS laptop. Featuring the latest Intel® processors. The Dell XPS9560-7001SLV-PUS might be pricey, but it does that for value and reason. It is one of the few systems with a premium construction and powerful high-end systems for work and video work, and will allow you play games on the side.
If you’re a media hobbyist or professional,… you should consider this system, seriously. The Dell XPS9560-7001SLV-PUS finally answers a question I get asked quite often: Which is the best laptop for visual artists who are onto photography or video? In fact, it is what we all thought Apple MacBook Pro 15 (Retina with Touchbar) would have been: extremely light, a 4K touch display, 100% Adobe RGB display screen.
A new Kaby lake processor, tons of RAM, a dedicated Pascal-based Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 graphics card and all-day battery life. The MacBook pro skimps on most of these features, safe for a trophy touch bar and sleek design, but the newest XPS 15 shines in both form and function.
Huawei MateBook Signature Edition 2 in 1 PC Tablet
The Huawei Matebook fits a full Windows 10 PC into an iPad-sized tablet chassis. The fingerprint sensor is fast. Its screen and speakers are excellent. You’ll get periodic pauses when launching applications or loading web pages, and battery life is merely OK. Huawei charges extra for the keyboard, stylus and dock you’ll need in order to use the Matebook like a PC.
Yes, it’s sleek… — and like an iPad Pro (or Microsoft’s bulkier Surface Pro), you can attach a wrap-around keyboard folio to turn this tablet into a far more productive machine. I’m typing this entire review on the Matebook’s leather-bound backlit keyboard right now, and while I wouldn’t want to type a novel on these fairly stiff keys, they get the job done. The built-in touchpad is impressive too, with an extremely fine surface that makes for accurate mousing.
Meanwhile, the Matebook’s ridiculously fast fingerprint sensor logs me into Windows with a snap — seriously, watch our video above. And the Matebook’s screen and speakers are among the best compared to other tablets on the market. I actually enjoy listening to music on these speakers, which CNET tablet expert and resident audiophile Xiomara Blanco assures me is a mighty fine compliment. Just don’t expect any bass.
HP Elite X2 1012 G1 Detachable 2-IN-1 Business Tablet Laptop
HP designed its 12-inch Elite x2 convertible tablet with notebook-class ruggedness in mind, and it largely succeeds. But while it offers seriously solid competition for the Microsoft Surface Pro 4, a few features fall short of the bar.
Unlike Microsoft’s Surface Book,… which emerged after several generations of Surface tablets, the Elite x2 evolved from HP’s notebook line as well as its more consumer-focused predecessor, last year’s Spectre x2 convertible tablet. Buy an Elite x2, and you’ll probably be pleased with the stability of the keyboard, the integrated Windows Hello fingerprint sensor, and the superb trackpad.
That’s OK, however, because HP says the Elite x2 can withstand a 36-inch drop onto a wooden floor. My wife accidentally tested that claim, knocking it off a low 24-inch table onto thin carpet without a scratch. Even a Wide World of Sports crash will just necessitate sending the x2 to your IT department. HP expressly designed the x2 to allow access to its innards for upgrades, or component replacement, including the screen.
Dell i5378-3031GRY-PUS Inspiron, 13.3″ 2-in-1 Laptop
With its 360° hinge design, the 13.3″ Inspiron 13 5000 Series Multi-Touch 2-in-1 Notebook from Dell allows you to switch between four different modes. You can use Tent Mode for using recipes in real time, Stand Mode for movies on an airplane, Laptop Mode for typing your novel or emailing work, and Tablet Mode to make reading easier while you’re reclined. The Inspiron 13 5000 measures just 0.77″ thin and weighs 3.7 pounds.
The 13.3″ TrueLife IPS widescreen… display features a Full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution. With its 16:9 aspect ratio, 1080p HD content is displayed without scaling or letterboxing. The display also features touch support, so you’ll be able to utilize the multi-touch gestures incorporated into Windows 10. You can swipe, tap, and resize apps at your preference.
The system is powered by a 2.4 GHz Intel Core i3-7100U Dual-Core processor. It also has 4GB of 2400 MHz DDR4 RAM, a 1TB 5400 rpm SATA III 2.5″ hard drive, two USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-A ports (one with PowerShare), one USB 2.0 port Type-A port, one HDMI port, a built-in SD/SDHC/SDXC card reader, dual-band 802.11ac Wi-Fi (2×2), Bluetooth 4.0, an integrated 720p webcam, dual integrated microphones, and stereo speakers that are driven by the Realtek ALC3253 codec with Waves MaxxAudio Pro.
