Dell intros the multitouch-capable Studio 17 Touch

By on
Dell quietly rolled out the Studio 17 Touch today, making it the company's first multitouch laptop. The system kicks off at $800 and sports a 17.3" (1600x900) LED display, a 2.1GHz Intel Pentium Dual Core T4300, 4GB of DDR3 1066MHz RAM, an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4570, a 320GB 7200RPM HDD, a dual-layer DVD burner, 802.11g connectivity, a six-cell battery, and Windows 7 Home Premium x64.

If desired, the Studio 17 Touch can also be configured with a full 1080p display, an Intel Core i7 720QM or 820QM CPU, 8GB of DDR3 1333MHz RAM, a 1GB ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4650, dual 500GB HDDs, a Blu-ray burner, 802.11n, a Soundblaster X-Fi audio card, a nine-cell battery, and Windows 7 Ultimate x64. Naturally, those additions come at a premium, and maxing out the specifications brings the price up to about $2,900.

Systems come with a minimum one-year warranty, and orders placed now will ship in early December -- just in time for the holidays.
