Sure the functionality isn't quite comparable to that snazzy touchscreen computer on the Minority Report, but it still manages to handle a number of applications and gestures such as finger drawing, flicking through playlists, editing photos and creating albums, playing games from the Windows 7 Touch Pack and setting up slideshows.
The Studio 17 is the first Dell laptop to get the multitouch functionality, and alongside it boasts a 17.3-inch HD display, a choice of Intel Core 2 Duo processor, and fully customisable spec.
The Inspiron One 19 on the other hand packs a 19-inch HD widescreen, is also fully customisable, and has the option of wireless keyboard and mouse to keep it looking slick.
The Inspiron One 19 is available now from £499, while the Studio 17 is awaiting pricing and dates.
