Dell Quietly Releases Touchscreen Studio 17

The Studio 17 Touch represents Dell's first ever multitouch notebook and boy, does it mean business. With a 17.3-inch (1600x900) display, the machine packs Intel's 2.1GHz Dual Core T4300, with the option to upgrade to Core i7. Processing power aside, you're looking at a 512MB ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4570 (option for a 1GB ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4650), up to 8GB of RAM, up to 1TB of storage, Blu-ray, 802.11g connectivity, a six-cell battery, and various different options for Windows 7.

Electronista reports that system starts off at $800 for the Dual Core T4300, 4GB of DDR3, an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4570, a 320GB HDD, a dual-layer DVD burner, Blu-ray, 802.11g connectivity, a six-cell battery, and Windows 7 Home Premium x64.

 Hit up Dell to preorder. Shipping is set for December.

    This is actually pretty cool. Too bad I'm poor and laptops are expensive.

    Smudgy fingerprints aside... I really want one of these. Between price/performace and wow factor it seems to have it all. I am sure there are more affordable options out there that may be comparable in performace but I have had many Dell computers in the past and I have been happy with them.
