Here is an explanation.

Multi point touch screens sense multiple points of contact on the tablet PC
allowing for better accuracy. and the zooming option. The more points the

Other common multi touch screens are 5 point touch and 10 point touch.

tablets do not have a built-in CD/DVD ROM drive but you can get an
USB drive instead. Finally, in order to take advantage of the entire array
of JAWS gestures that will be available on the touch screen, you must have
