So I'm getting a Dell Inspiron Duo http://www.dell.com/us/p/inspiron-duo/pd on Monday and am trying to find some games that would mesh well with a touchscreen.  Suggestions?

I want to get a touch PC as well let us know how well it works.

I think any game like Bauldur's Gate games would be perfect for it.  Great story and combat and you can pause and give orders at any time.

I can't really tell how to compare the specs of the Duo to listed requirements. Anyone know what Intel NM10 Express Chipset Video compares to?

Havent gotten the laptop yet, but heres a list of games I plan on giving a try, all of which I found on Steam...

Greed Corp
Flight Control HD
Gratuitous Space Battles
Worms Reloaded
and maybe the Penny Arcade RPG

So a brief update... the screen arrived with a whole line of dead pixels.  Dell sent out support to swap the screen, but they cracked not only the replacement but the original as well. So I'm without the laptop until this coming Monday.  I did have a chance to try out audiosurf.  The touch controls don't work sadly, and it will only properly run in netbook mode.  I also tried out Defense Grid which only went to show I likely cant run any 3D games, it was a slideshow.  Anyway, I still plan on trying out a few of the ones mentioned above, but what I've found up to this point is that there are nearly zero tablet friendly games for PC.  SmallWorld would really throw me a bone if they converted their ipad app...

According to a review I found the NM10 in the Duo gets a 143 on 3DMark06.  A typical i3 laptop with Intel graphics gets about 1350-1400.  I think you can pretty much write off anything 3D.

Before the iPad, I went through a long period of trying different Tablet PCs and looking for games that would work well, but for the most part it was a fruitless effort.  That said, I did have some luck mostly with the Turn-Based Strategy genre, and also CCG-esque games like Magic.  So if you are into those sort of games, you might have some luck looking into games like King's Bounty, Civilization, Fantasy Wars, Master of Magic, Master of Orion, Disciples, etc.
