Top 5 Touch Screen Laptops

1. Acer Aspire S7

One of our favorite Ultrabooks, the 3-pound Acer Aspire S7 features a powerful fourth-generation Intel Haswell processor, a fast 128GB SSD and a gorgeous 1080p touch screen display. The S7 still features a beautiful glass and white aluminum chassis that’s just .51 inches thin, but it now offers nearly 9 hours of battery life.

2. Lenovo IdeaPad U310 Touch

The Lenovo IdeaPad U310 Touch makes our top Ultrabook list for its fast performance and reasonable price. For just under $600, this Ultrabook has a graceful design and comes outfitted with a third-gen Core i5 CPU. The addition of a comfy keyboard, accurate touchscreen and loud, crisp audio make the U310 Touch a winner.

3. Dell XPS 12 

Dell’s Windows 8 convertible now offers excellent endurance, lasting nearly 9.5 hours on our battery test. The flip display design is as compelling as ever, making it a cinch to switch between laptop and tablet modes. At 3.2 pounds, the XPS 12 isn’t the lightest hybrid around, but we love the full HD touch display and strong performance.

4. Toshiba Portege Z935-P300

Weighing in at just 2.4 pounds, and measuring at 12.4 x 8.9 x 0.3 - 0.6 inches, the Toshiba Portege Z935 is the lightest 13-inch Ultrabook you can get outside of Japan. The combination of a third-generation Intel Core processor and fast SSD makes the Z935 a light-weight powerhouse. Better still, this svelte system finds room for full-size VGA, HDMI and Ethernet ports.

5. ASUS Zenbook UX51Vz

The 15-inch ASUS Zenbook UX51Vz is quite a showstopper with its lovely aluminum chassis and captivating 2880 x 1620 Retina-like display. With a powerful Core i7 GPU, discrete Nvidia graphics and blazing fast dual 256GB SSDs, ASUS backs up those good looks with serious brawn.
