As mobile computing technology continues to advance, a laptop that allows you to use your computer anywhere you want is simply becoming not good enough. Newer designs such as the increasingly popular Toshiba touch screen laptops offer a touch sensitive display that allows the user to interact with the computer in a way that was not possible before. As more people become aware of what is capable with these machine we can expect there to be a surge in demand for these devices. It can also be the catalyst that bridges the computer literacy gap that is so conveniently ignore by many of us.
Touch screen technology is not really something new. It has been with us for many years now but only recently has it been so finely tuned to the average consumer that almost every portable device uses the concept in one way or another. Mobile phones are now becoming more powerful in terms of computing capacity and touch screens are the norm with many smart phones. There are also gaming devices that only require interaction with the touch screen. It use to be the problem with display qualities since touch recognition capabilities came at a cost to the brightness and resolution the screen was able to output.
These days the issue of brightness is hardly a problem. Many devices such as the HP and Dell touch screen laptops are being advertised as multimedia centers because of their extra bright view screens. HP and Dell are the two giants in the personal computing industry and often mirror the products of each other’s line. In the end, it is the consumer who wins because the competition brings us better features and functionality with extremely competitive pricing. Many of these computers are being built for easy mobility and measure around 10 inches in screen size to minimize both weight and size.
