Lenovo IdeaPad Z400 Touch: Affordable, Touch-EnabledThe awkward days of Window 8 laptops without touchscreens aren’t behind us just yet, but the end is in sight. It’s easy enough to resist touching the Start screen on a desktop PC, but when a laptop display is inches from your fingers, if you're anything like us, your instinct is to reach out and touch it. Thankfully, affordable touch-enabled laptops have begun to hit store shelves, like Lenovo's new IdeaPad Z400 Touch.

Lenovo’s IdeaPad Z400 Touch is one of the laptops ushering in the era of touch screens for mid-range systems, so we’re taking it for a spin (and a swipe) for you here...

$600 is expensive for a touch-enabled, Ivy-Bridge based notebooks, with 6GB of memory, 1TB of storage and Windows 8?

With Win8 gaining so much traction its nice to see the key features filtering down to the sub $1000 laptops. Very nice indeed.

Two GB more and an SSD and I would pay 700 for that.

Jake, if they can't they shouldn't be looking for a new laptop with win8 and touch any way.

This specs sound great especially for the price and it isn't a bargain-based brand sounds good all around.

Damn, wish I had saw this earlier. Friend of mine I help with computer stuff just bought a new laptop today with windows 8 and I was explaining how metro can shine with a touchscreen. This would be perfect for her.
