The gaming laptop market has slowly been expanding, but the screen size on most portable gaming machines have been shrinking down to the 13- and 14-inch range. Not anymore, thanks to Lenovo's new Y70 Touch gaming laptop, which features a 17-inch touchscreen LCD.

The Lenovo Y70 Touch is fully touch-capable, compared to most of the gaming laptops on the market which are not. The Y70 Touch can be configured with a Core i7 processor, an NVIDIA GeForce GTX GPU, up to 16GB of RAM, up to 1TB of mechanical HDD or 256GB of SSD. Lenovo pegs the battery life at around five hours, but I'm sure that is not while it's gaming.

Lenovo will be making its 17-inch touchscreen gaming laptop available next month with a starting price of $1,299.
