Lenovo ThinkPads get multi-touch displays

Lenovo today became the latest PC vendor to enter the multi-touch game with updates to both the ThinkPad T400s and the X200 Tablet. Both now recognize at least two fingers and, besides being better-suited to Windows 7, have a new companion app known as SimpleTap that provides quick finger-driven shortcuts to simple but important tasks like changing the volume, toggling Wi-Fi or putting the system to sleep.

The T400s is a direct conversion of the existing model and has the familiar 14-inch screen size as well as a relatively thin profile for a full-speed system. Its display gets four-finger multi-touch input. Picking the multi-touch display brings its base price up to $1,999 but nets a 2.4GHz Core 2 Duo, 2GB of RAM, a 120GB hard drive and a DVD burner.

The X200 has undergone a more substantial refresh. Although its 12-inch panel only supports two-finger multi-touch, the tablet gets an upgrade to a faster-performing SL series 1.4GHz Core 2 Duo and has a new outdoors screen option to cut back on interference. A multi-touch edition starts at $1,654 with current pricing and gets just 1GB of memory but a 160GB hard drive.

Both models are available to order today.
