The notebook with touch are thicker and heavier than the non-touch models, because their screen also consists of a digitizer that allows the user to interact with a graphical interface using a finger, a pen but also sharp objects.
LG Display Advanced In-Cell Touch
According to released by LG, its next panel “Advanced In-Cell Touch” are 25% thinner and 35% lighter than conventional touch screens, now integrated in laptops. It ‘obvious, therefore, that the adoption of the new displays will allow LG to build notebook a bit’ more compact. Screens LG also will be even brighter and lighter than traditional displays, because they will not be provided with the cover glass that reduces reflection and brightness.
The Advanced In-Cell Touch is not new but has existed for some years and, by combining the digitizer, and LCD touch input in a single layer, has allowed manufacturers to create smartphones and tablet thinner. The Korean company will produce panels 14 and 15.6 inches, which by its own admission, will supply the laboratories of several PC makers with an estimated launch of the first notebooks later this year. If technology and laptops will have the expected success is possible that LG decides to produce screens diagonally lower (ultraportable) or higher (desktop replacement).
LG is also developing an Advanced In-Cell Touch Panel working with input from an active digitizer and pen, ideal for notebook convertible, hybrid 2-in-1 tablet of last generation.
At the moment we do not know the cost of production of new panels nor do we know if they can affect the final price of the notebook, but almost certainly laptops with this technology will not be among the cheapest. After all, in this area, thin is synonymous with beautiful then the new machines could belong to the medium-high market
