Dell adds touch to Studio XPS laptops – are touchscreen laptops a fad

Dell have re-launched their Studio XPS series of laptops and added touch screen functionality to the devices.

With the onslaught of touch screen laptops and tablet computers, people are wondering whether touch screen computers are indeed the next best thing. How does a touch screen laptop or computer fare against traditional computers?

Dell laptops recently joined the touch screen bandwagon. They released the Dell Studio 17, a 17.3 inch touch screen laptop, which is powerful, has brilliant audio-playback capability, and sports a comprehensive multi-touch management hub. It does sound too good to be true, right? It’s packed with features that would surely quench the thirst of tech-savvy people. What are some of these features? Read on.

Quality goes hand-in-hand with Dell laptops and the Studio 17 affirms that fact. It has an Intel Core 2 Duo T9300 (2.5GHz) processor, a Windows Vista Home Premium SP1 operating system, 3GB system RAM, webcam and fingerprint reader, backlit keyboard, 256MB ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3650 graphics, slot load DVD+/-RW with dual layer DVD+R write capacity, 9-cell battery and weighs only 7.87lbs plus a host of other features. But it also has a couple of flaws that make it hard to get very excited about. For instance, its size of 17 inches doesn’t really make it very portable. Imagine hauling something as -big- as that wherever you need to go, car and airplane travel included.

Performance-wise, the Dell Studio 17 is definitely at par with other Dell Laptops. That fact is unquestionable. However, with a base price of about 629,00, it’s quite expensive for a touch screen laptop that’s supposed to be in Dell’s -mid-range- series.

However, considering all of its features, it’s safe to assume then that when it comes to the Dell Studio 17, you either hate it or love it depending on what your preference is.
