HP has introduced its latest notebook, the TouchSmart tx2. As the name suggests, it has touchscreen technology built in, allowing users to interact with various software using finger or stylus rather than the keyboard.

Featuring capacitive touch, the display can distinguish between one or more finger presses, and can disregard accidental touches, making for more accurate and versatile input.

The supplied digital pen is pressure-sensitive, meaning the harder you press the stronger the signal – great for art and drawing software.

The 12.1-inch BrightView screen can be rotated 180 degrees and closed over the keyboard in order to create a tablet PC.

Other features include built-in infra-red receiver, webcam and microphones, and the notebook runs from AMD Turion X2 dual core processors and ATI Radeon HD 3200 graphics.

Available from January next year with prices starting at £799.
