My lenovo touchscreen laptop recently decided to overheat, and now, the processor is stuck on 60%. The HDMI port no longer works as well.

Right now, im looking for a nice multitouch laptop with solid construction, which has a nice graphics card thats either ATI or Nvidia. (Preferably nvidia).
No Switchable Graphics.
Ive already checked lenovo, and all they have are Intel graphics.

I only have a NEGATIVE suggestion. Don't buy something from the HP series TouchSmart TM2. The touchscreen and touchpad are incompatible with Linux.

Well the trough is the touchsceen is working more or less, but there are problems, like the blank screen when boot. The workaround is to close and open the lid. You cannot control the brightness of the screen as well, no HDMI working, big problems with the ATI drivers and many more things which I don't remember, because I gave up and passed it to my wife, as Windows machine.
