With the best touch screen notebooks users can avail the ease and portability of a tablet computer while also benefiting from the performance of a notebook.

Windows 7 was by far the best operating system available for this sort of flexibility as it supports normal keyboard mode as well as the touch screen. These products however, have not made it to the forefront, on account of lack of OS support and inadequate hardware.

Our recommendation of notebooks with touchscreen include some of the best Windows 8 notebooks which can be operated as both laptop and tablets (convertibles). You could afford such laptops under $700 price range from brands like Lenovo, Asus and HP.

  • The Samsung ATIV Book 9 Plus goes toe to toe with the best premium ultrabooks, then tops it off with a jaw-dropping high-resolution display.


  • In any case, the 940X3G has overall really earned a purchase recommendation, although potential buyers can choose among many, not less attractive alternatives. Another serious contender might be the soon to be released Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 2 Pro that features an even better configuration for a similar price. Samsung should not rest on its laurels.


  • The ATIV Book 9 Plus keeps the slim and sleek chassis of its predecessor and adds a Retina-like display, long battery life and swift Haswell performance.


  • If you can get over the Dell XPS 12's screen acrobatics, this convertible ultrabook is a good way to get both tablet and laptop functionality in one unit.


  • Truly, there is not much to criticize about Dell's latest XPS 12. It is a top-tier piece of technology that excels in nearly every department, from its exquisite construction to its clever, versatile design. It maintains one of the best keyboards on any Ultrabook to date, coupled with a comfortable touchpad, accurate 10-point multi-touch screen, and a reasonable weight that - while still a bit heavy by tablet standards - communicates quality. And it's incredibly stylish, to boot.


  • With a fourth-generation Intel processor and a higher-capacity battery, Dell's updated XPS 12 is an excellent 12-inch tablet-laptop hybrid that can go the distance.


  • The Sony VAIO Pro 13 shows that you can make laptops lighter and thinner when you use a fourth-generation Intel Core processor. It's very good, though Sony really needs a grand slam to distance itself from similar rivals.


  • Light, thin and elegant. Samsung Series 9, Apple MacBook Air 13, Acer Aspire S7 391 and Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon - all devices make compromises to meet these requirements. The Vaio 13 Pro is the lightest Ultrabook (1,066 grams/~2.4 pounds) within this competition; the just 10 mm (0.4 inches) thick base results in a reduced keyboard quality and problems with the torsion resistance. The case material of carbon fiber is unbreakable but still flexible. Some aluminum unibodies of the rivals are stiffer but also heavier.


  • The Sony VAIO Pro 13 delivers Intel Haswell power, long battery life and one of the world's fastest SSD's in the lightest 13-inch touch Ultrabook.


  • If you're looking for a svelte laptop to show off, yet still be able to do real work in Windows 8, the Acer Aspire S7-392-6411 is the ultrabook you want at the top of the list. It's the current pinnacle of the ultrabook trend and shows the brilliance that the PC makers can return under Intel's increasingly stringent standards for ultrabooks.


  • The Acer Aspire S7 is a slim, stylish Ultrabook that offers strong performance, very long battery life and a gorgeous, full-1080p touch screen.

    The second time's a charm for Acer: the company's refreshed S7 Ultrabook addresses all the things we disliked about the original. Just be prepared to pay a premium over competing laptops.


  • The Acer Aspire M5-583P-6428 laptop gets a giant boost in performance and battery life, and does it without budging on the reasonable price.


  • The Acer Aspire M5-583P-6428 offers solid Haswell performance, more than 8 hours of battery life and a 15.6-inch touch screen in a slim package.


  • The revised Acer Aspire M5 is an excellent example of what Intel’s new 4th-gen processors make possible. Little change has come to the chassis, and most other hardware is unchanged, so the improvements can generally be attributed to the laptop’s Core i5-4200U. And boy, are there improvements. Battery life in our Web browsing benchmark has increased by 30 minutes, while light-load endurance improved by almost four hours. Compute performance is about the same as before, but 3D performance has improved dramatically. Fan noise and external temperatures are lower, too.
