X201 Tablet Tablet MultiTouch Support (Newbie)

I'm new to the Tablet community but excited to venture into it.  My workplace provided me with an X201 Tablet type 2985 model C5U.  The pen works great but I can emulate any of the finger/touch demos.  Is this not supported with my type or model?  Or do I need a special driver.  When I open the tablet PC settings, I'm given the option to identify my screen as PEN or TOUCH.  While I select TOUCH, no finger combination (one or two) that presses my screen will invoke anything.  I was hoping this would be a touch solutoin albeit more powerful than the iPad.  Appreciate your responses everyone.

 

Thank you.

Erik...much appreciate the reply.  Would you mind sharing which precise models does support both pen and touch?  I will consider trading my machine in for the models you suggest.  I hope the screen resolution is compatible with what I have.  Thank you very much.

the easiest method is to download the ThinkPad Personal Systems Reference (PSREF) sheets.   this lists all of the current TopSeller, preconfigured, preconfigured with on-site warranty, and preconfigured education models with complete specs, model numbers, and detailed descriptions.
