Are There Any Decent Touchscreen Laptops Out There Yet?

I'm in the market for a new laptop after three years. Now I'm the kinda guy who doesn't mind spending a couple hundred dollars more right now to get something that seems like overkill at the present, so long as it keeps me chugging along at a decent pace for two or three years. Basically, I don't like to throw down money for a new gadget every year.

This brings me to my question: Are there any decent touchscreen laptops available these days? I ask because it's patently obvious that that's the direction Microsoft is going in with Windows 8 and I'm pretty sure that some time next year, these things will start to become the standard slowly. However, if I can, I'd like to avoid waiting that long to get a new machine.

So do you guys think it's worth it to wait for then or it makes sense to just get a decent laptop available today, or are there any laptops with touchscreens that you'd recommend?

The Lenovo X220T is a solid touchscreen notebook. It has readily accessible drive bays so just get a hard-disk version and put something like a Crucial M4 in there.

I have a 2 year old Fujitsu Lifebook T5010 convertible laptop that I find very useful.
I would recommend getting a Fujitsu with dual (stylus and finger) input. I would also recommend getting an extra battery for the CD bay. You usually don't need a cd drive when you are on the go but extra juice is always welcome.
The Fujitsu has lots of good security features - pre-BIOS pin lock, fingerprint scanning, and full HD encryption.
I have had no issues with it.
