If you have touch input hardware that isn't specifically designed for Windows 8 or Windows 8.1, but that displays the "Designed for Windows" logo for Windows 7, you'll experience touch responsiveness at least as good as it was on Windows 7. Because touch features of Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 require a higher degree of responsiveness and precision, touch PCs that were designed for Windows 8 or Windows 8.1 provide a much better experience when typing on the touch keyboard and using certain features than those that were designed for Windows 7. For example, touch screens that support fewer than five simultaneous touch points don't work with certain features and applications that are part of Windows 8 and Windows 8.1.
To use touch on system builder editions of Windows 8 or Windows 8.1, you need hardware that is certified for Windows 8 or Windows 8.1.
