Fujitsu on Tuesday also jumped into the multitouch laptop race, introducing an updated version of its LifeBook T5010 convertible tablet PC that supports two-finger touch input. The laptop has a 13.3-inch screen that allows for either touch and stylus input. The laptop weighs about 4.5 pounds and is powered by Core 2 Duo processors. A customizable version of the multitouch laptop is priced over $1800 on Fujitsu's Web site. The laptop will initially come with the Windows Vista OS.
Top PC makers Dell and Hewlett-Packard already offer two-finger touchscreen laptops. Hewlett-Packard launched the TouchSmart TX2 last year, while Dell earlier this year launched the multitouch Latitude XT2 laptop.
