I really wish companies would stop calling dual-touch machines Multi Touch. It's deceptive, and often very difficult to find out how many fingers a device supports at once. Why isn't this listed in the specifications, at least? I called in to Lenovo support and the support tech had no idea. After ten minutes, he was able to tell me that it would only take 1 finger. When I told him that it accepted at least two, he said "yeah, two". If your own support staff can't find the information, how is the general public supposed to know?
I bought the S10-3t on the assumption that it was a real multitouch machine. I bought it and upgraded to Windows Home Premium only to find out that it only supports two fingers at a time. Who makes the screen hardware? Is the limitation in the hardware or in the device driver?

To clarify, I am referring to the monitor. The display is supposedly 'Multi-Touch', but only accepts two fingers. So where is this limitation? Hardware or Software? Why doesn't Lenovo specify that when they say 'multi' they mean two?

Same question here! I was going to write some cool multi-touch software on my new S10-3t just to find out it can only handle 2 simultaneous touch points! Windows 7 also states in Computer Properties that only 2 points are possible. What's the deal? This aint no multi-touch, dual touch at most, too bad. I would like an official to say a word on that. I also noticed there is no special touchscreen driver, so maybe we have to wait until a special driver comes out, because generic driver is limited or smth?
