I had a Lenovo x201t with multitouch screen (which had to be returned). I found that I did not use the touch aspect very much, so when I buy a new tablet PC I will probably save the $300 and not get it again.
However, I was thinking that with Windows 8 coming up, not getting the multitouch screen could be short-sighted. This is probably a long-shot, but has anyone heard of tests done with multitouch tablet pc screens and Windows 8? The actual touch experience of the Lenovo multitouch screen is significantly different from those of tablets such as the iPad or Playbook, and it's not clear to me if the Lenovo x201t could effectively leverage the Windows 8 UI. Any idea if my experience with the x201t multitouch is a result of the W7 OS, or the hardware itself.
My multitouch experience was that swiping was not very sensitive and the precision of the touch wasn't great (not calibration, but tolerance so to speak). Most times I used touch, I had to try multiple times to get the action I anticipated.
Solved! Go to Solution.

X201T is one of the 7 devices Windows 8 is developed on (yet another been X220T). Thus, I think everything will be OK with Windows 8 on X201T.
