HP’s TouchSmart PC has brought multi-touch computing mainstream, so why not throw those capabilities into a laptop. That is exactly HP’s thought with its announcement today of the HP TouchSmart tx2z tablet. Evolving out of the HP Pavilion Tx2500, the TouchSmart TX2 sports a similar convertible chassis but its updated capacitive touch screen and multi-touch drivers by N-Trig can support multiple points of input on the 12.1-inch 1280×800 display. This is the first laptop aimed at consumers to support multi-touch. To date only the business Dell Latitude XT has supported multi-touch input. Check out our exclusive hands-on video here to see the Tx2′s multi-touch in action and our first impressions of the notebook. With a starting price of $1,149.99 the Tx2z will be configurable on HP’s Web site starting today and will ship to customers on November 28. See the full specs of the system below the jump.
