    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.

    Fact: Until recently touching wasn't allowed for a 'lap-top' :mhp:
    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

    Woo Hoo lets build an OS that takes advantage of this and alienate the other 90% while doing so.
