With Windows 7, one of the things that was really pushed was how well the OS will work for touchscreen computers and those sporting multitouch. Dell has announced that one of its largest notebooks, the Studio 17, now has multitouch technology built-in.




The massive notebook has a 17.3-inch screen with a 1600 x 900 resolution with the multitouch tech I mentioned before. That means you can navigate pictures with a finger and use gestures like pinch to zoom.


The notebook can have up to 8GB of RAM and a variety of CPUs up to the Core i7 parts from Intel. The notebook also has up to 1TB of storage, optional discrete graphics, and built-in 802.11b/g/n WiFi. The machines get standard graphics via Intel GMA 4500MHD. The Studio 17 starts at $899 for a base model and the price will climb quickly from there as you add options.
