Windows 8's new modern UI is really built around a touchscreen experience. To make the most of a portable computer, a touchscreen can make using the laptop much more convenient than the spotty gesture trackpad support that exists right now. Best Buy offers an exclusive ASUS VivoBook Q200E laptop that is compact, has a touchscreen and is priced at just $500. The laptop features a smaller 11.6-inch touchscreen that makes navigating Windows 8 much easier. It uses an older Intel Core i3-2365M dual core processor which works just fine, 4GB DDR3 memory, 500GB hard drive, 802.11b/g/n wireless and even a USB 3.0 port. All this while weighing under three pounds.
