Not a fan of the touchscreen on laptops. Makes a lot more sense on tablets (or laptops ith detachable screens). Those that are touchscreen and with a screen that cannot detach is pointless.

I find the touchscreen very useful on my Asus transformer and use it all the time with the keyboard dock attached. But that is because the screen is small. On larger notebooks I don't think I'd like it.

Fact: Until recently touching wasn't allowed for a 'lap-top'
Fact: Lap-tops only have two protruding buttons
Fact: Lap-tops have displays that can move from side to side
Fact: Lap-tops only come with one vertically orientated USB port
Fact: Another port is available around the back, but it's much less widely used
