Toshiba U505 and M505 Touchscreened in Time For Win 7

Toshiba's upgraded their U505 and M505 notebooks with touchscreens in time for Windows 7. They'll go for about $1000, to start with. The rest of their "new laptops" seem old.

The U505 has a 13.3-inch screen, while the M505 has a 14-inch screen. Both have Toshiba's touch UI, "Lifespace Bulletin Board" a dashboard for calendaring and to do lists and "Reeltime" a visual thumbnail browser that shows recently opened files.
