Acer Aspire AS5738PG is Acer’s Multitouch Notebook

Acer just announced the Aspire AS5738PG, their first multi-touch notebook, that will ship with Windows 7 on October 22nd.

This doesn't take away from the ability to use the touchscreen; it just changes the focus of touch technology from that of a tablet.
