With the introduction of Windows 8 there has been the advent of touch enabled laptops and convertibles and desktops with amazing touch screen interface. It is an amazing feature that can be ignored if you are not comfortable with the touch screen functioning. Touch screen adds up an extra bulk to the display since it needs a touch layer on the screen. But LG has taken up the responsibility to fix the hurdle with the help of a new type of a display tech.
What is the technology all about?
The technology that is question is known as the Advanced In-Cell Touch or AIT. What does it do? It actually wards away the requirement for a separate touch layer by combining the touch sensor directly into the LCD panel. The best part is that you don’t have to any longer include the touch panel on the top of the LCD. Rather it comes as a standard and the thickness is reduced by 1mm (25%) and weight by almost 200 grams (35%) of the final finished display.
Laptops will be lighter and sleeker as well
It means that LG’s touch screen tech will make the laptops and similar devices way thinner and lighter. You might have noticed that the touch screen laptops are larger in size and bulkier even when compared with the non touch screen laptops. It is because of the extra touch layer in the panel. LG seems to be the savior with the inclusion of Advanced In-Cell Touch panels for the laptops that have proved to be with better results than expected.
