Best touchscreen, content creators laptops

Whether you’re a content creator or a business professional, if you’re looking for a laptop with a great touchscreen, you’ve come to the right place. Back in the days of old, it used to be something of an insurmountable task to pinpoint a laptop with a decent touchscreen. Well, those days are long past. However, with so many options out there, it can still be rather daunting. If you’re not sure where to begin, don’t sweat it. The team here at PCWorld curated a list of the best touchscreen laptops you can buy right now. How can we be so confident in our picks? We’ve had hands-on experience with every single one of them. Read on to learn more.

1. Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 9

If you’re looking for a fantastic touchscreen for getting work done, the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 9 is a good option. The 14-inch 1080p IPS display is touch-enabled—albeit only on select models, so shop carefully—and has a roomy 16:10 aspect ratio. The taller display means scrolling less through long documents and whatnot. As for visuals, the screen “boasts a crisp image” and the contrast is “excellent.” In addition to the sharp images, the display also produced “bright whites and deep blacks.” In addition to the fantastic screen, the keyboard is snappy and quiet and there’s a decent array of ports.


・Roomy 16:10 display

・Thin and light yet rugged

・Stellar keyboard

・Quiet operation

・Booming audio

・Two Thunderbolt 4 ports


・Webcam limited to 720p

・Display color is a bit cool

2. Dell XPS 17 9710

The Dell XPS 17 9710 is a fantastic option for content creators because of its ginormous 17-inch display and 16:10 aspect ratio. Not only is its screen touch-enabled, but it also has a 10-bit color depth and a 3840-by-2400 resolution. According to our review, the laptop isn’t as bulky as you’d think. It weighs about five pounds, which isn’t bad considering how much Dell managed to cram into this machine. As for performance, the pairing of an Intel 11-gen Core i7-11800H processor and a Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 should make quick work of any video or photo editing.


・Huge 17-inch screen in a relatively compact laptop

・Powerful Intel CPU and Nvidia RTX graphics

・Excellent port selection for video and image editing

・Superb display


・No USB-A port and no Gigabit Ethernet

・Hybrid charging likely sacrifices a little performance

3. HP Spectre x360 14 

The latest model of the HP Spectre x360 14 has a lot going for it. It has kept the solid build quality of models past and even updated and improved upon the design, making it a more attractive-looking laptop than ever. It comes with a gorgeous OLED display that will ensure you never want to return to a regular IPS LCD display again. The introduction of an OLED screen does come with a drawback in terms of battery life, but it’s still respectable compared to other 2-in-1s. The Spectre x360 14 also packs a U-series processor and Intel Iris Xe integrated graphics, making it ideally suited for office and productivity tasks.


・Stellar OLED display

・Unique and rugged design

・IR and fingerprint biometrics

・1080p webcam with physical shutter


・Battery life not as long as last year’s model

・A bit heavy at three pounds

4. HP Chromebook x2 

If you’re looking for an affordable 2-in-1, the HP Chromebook x2 11 tics all the right boxes. It’s lightweight and portable, and the detachable keyboard and kickstand connect cleanly to the aluminum tablet. But the real star of the show here is the 11-inch 1440p touchscreen. In our review, the tester said the display was “just plain lovely.” Colors really pop and the touchscreen is super responsive and fluid. Plus, a wireless USI pen comes in the box. This is a great option for those who like to take notes or doodle.


・Gorgeous 2K touchscreen

・Solid performance

・Excellent battery life

・Robust design


・Trackpad is too sensitive at times

・Light on ports

5. Lenovo Yoga 9i 

The Lenovo Yoga 9i has a lot to offer. It features a vibrant display, an all-metal chassis, and long battery life. The 14-inch 1080p touch display is bright at 400 nits and, according to our review, “colors appeared accurate and vibrant.” However, the tester disliked the 16:9 aspect ratio, as he felt it was too wide for productivity work. Generally speaking, taller displays are better for general use or working with long documents. That said, the wider 16:9 is perfectly suitable for watching your favorite flicks. If the aspect ratio doesn’t bother you too much, the Yoga 9i is a solid option.


・Sturdy and sleek all-metal chassis

・Long battery life

・Impressive audio output

・Comfortable keyboard


・16:9 screen feels cramped

・Included stylus is too skinny

・Undersized touchpad

・Limited ports all on left side

6. Dell Inspiron 16 

Need a touchscreen laptop that’ll run as long as the Energizer Bunny? Look no further than the Dell Inspiron 16. When we ran our battery benchmark, which runs a laptop through a series of tasks and videos until the battery dies, the Inspiron 16 lasted a marathon 16.5 hours on a single charge. That’s almost two full work days—or a really long Netflix binge. That large battery does make it a bit heavy, weighing in at 4.7 pounds, which is a more than some other 2-in-1s. The specs aren’t bad either, sporting an Intel Core i7-1260P CPU, Intel Iris Xe graphics, 16GB of RAM, and 512GB of SSD storage. That’s powerful enough for multitasking, media editing, and more. The 16-inch display has a resolution of 1920×1080 and it also comes with a surprisingly robust quad speaker system. For ports, you’re getting two USB Type-C, one USB-A 3.2 Gen 1, 1 HDMI, one SD card reader, and one 3.5mm audio jack.


・Roomy 16-inch 16:10 display

・Long battery life

・Competitive application performance

・Comfortable keyboard and huge touchpad

・Quad speakers pump up the jams


・Lone GPU upgrade is lacklustre

・Can’t go bigger than 512GB SSD

・Large screen can feel awkward in tablet mode

7. Asus Zenbook Pro 14 Duo OLED

If you’re look for something a bit different, look no further than the Asus Zenbook Pro 14. It packs decent firepower with a Core i7 processor, RTX 3050 graphics, 16GB of DDR5 RAM, and a fast 1TB NVMe SSD. It also has a 14.5-inch 4K touch touch OLED main panel. But the truly intriguing feature is the secondary 12.7-inch 2880×864 screen located right above the keyboard. It is recognized as a second monitor and you can use it with all kinds of helpful tasks, such as setting it up as a trackpad or displaying a panel of touch controls for some Adobe apps. The only real drawback is the mediocre battery life, which means you’ll likely need to carry around a charging cable while on the go. Despite this, the Zenbook Pro 14 Duo OLED is a well-tuned productivity machine complete with two high-quality and useful displays.


・Stunning primary display and easy to see secondary display

・Excellent I/O options and wireless connectivity

・CPU / GPU power meets the needs of content creators


・The battery life is lacking for a productivity laptop

・The trackpad is small and awkwardly placed

・Rear orientated ports can be hard to reach
