    There is no way you can get OLED with touch.

    You could wait for the ThinkPad X1 Carbon 6, which will be offered with a FHD Touch display.

    welp i'm getting the 5th gen for free..just found out so no complaints here
    the 6th gen sounds promising! i can't believe they'd leave out a touchscreen

    this is a strange question, but i have neuropathy in my hands and i LOVE being able to scroll down a page just by flipping down web pages(not a fan of buttons)
    is there any cheap hack to this? like some a wacom? i'm not even sure how those work


    UPDATE
    i feel dumb
    i just realized if i use TWO FINGERS i can scroll down a page
    can't believe i've never noticed this before LOL

    Want a touchscreen, you have to buy an IdeaPad. ThinkPads aren't consumer grade where touchscreens are coveted. Compromise is necessary, or consider HP and Panasonic who have touchscreens. And are still business class machines or higher.

    The Thinkpad T480s can be configured with a touchscreen.

    An exception, and X series often have them as well. The X series tablets are very nice.
