I own a HP TX 2500z touch screen tablet PC myself and readily enjoy it’s performance but yet it’s single touch. Today Hewlett Packard introduced the company’s first notebook computer with multi-touch technology Wednesday, promising users the same fingertip navigation built into previous HP desktops and popularized by Apple’s iPhone.

HP is providing users an easier, more natural way to interact with their PCs. said Ted Clark, the manager of HP’s notebook group, said in a statement.

Dubbed as the HP TouchSmart tx2, it will be delivering computing at your fingertips with HP MediaSmart digital entertainment software suite. You can also use gestures such as pinch, rotate, arc, flick, press, drag, and tap once or tap twice. You can even resize your images just like on Microsoft’s own Surface table.

Similar to the Tx2500z series, the Touchsmart tX2 would have a AMD Turion X2 Processor and with it comes Windows Vista Home Premium operating system and HP said the new laptop will be available for order online today starting at $1,149.

What do you think, will touch make our lives much more fun??? Comment…
