Question re. Multitouch on the x201t...

With the introduction of the x201t there seem to be three options for screens: default, multitouch, or super bright.

My question is simple - Has lenovo moved on from the whole multitouch vs enhanced multitouch thing? If i get a "12.1" Multitouch WXGA LED Panel with Wide viewing Angle" on an x201t, is it safe to assume that it'll support 2 finger input?

 

Cheers!

Hi MiPo, and welcome to the Lenovo User Community!

 

That's a great question! I'm checking it out.

Re: Question re. Multitouch on the x201t...

Just got off the phone with lenovo's customer service and got some info from them:

 

Was told that the x201t default multi touch was 2 finger, so it seems like the goofy nomenclature of multitouch vs enhanced multitouch is being left in the dust (Hurray!).

 

But there's more! The tech support guy mentioned that there will be 4 point multitouch input within the year so keep your eyes open for that as an option down the line.

Thanks for posting that info MiPo!

 

The specs and documentation agree: the X201 Tablet is two-finger multitouch only. I updated my initial post accordingly.

Re: Lenovo tablets: multitouch vs multitouch

I'm thinking about getting my gf a x201 for her birthday, and I'm a little confused about the screen options. Thanks to this post I understand the current "multitouch" is 2-finger...

 

But just to be perfectly clear, the default non-multitouch IS both pen and finger?

 

Also, is there a clear explanation somewhere of the functionality that the 2-finger multitouch adds?

 

Thanks!

I got the mulittouch display. It works pretty well, it does have a bit of glare if a light is directly above the screen. It supports two finger touch similar to how an iPod does (pinch zoom for example) the super bright display only supports pen input.

Re: Lenovo tablets: multitouch vs multitouch

[ Edited ]

My last "IBM" laptop was so superior to the HP I have been using, I am "returning" to Lenovo now that my HP has bit the dust..  I looked at lenovo's website on the X201T and order one.  The order status in my account gave a description on the display as: 60Y7322   SBB 12.1WXGALEDPNLWWDVWANGL+TP!  Had I been able to find an explanation of this code anywhere on the internet I would have know that the order got taken wrong and would have changed the order before shipment.  I did not discover that this was not the computer described on the Lenovo website as an X201T until I tried to use the touch screen, so I had to send back this nonmultitouch computer and get one that has a order status as follows: 60Y7323   SBB 12.1ENMLTCHWXGLDPNWDVWANTP.  Can you tell me if there is a way to decode these order status descriptions?  Why would we be given order status descriptions that are not clear?  Tabook does not have these numbers or descriptions.
