    When it comes to productivity touch is NOT practical. The good old keyboard and mouse still can be beat. This is just a logical fact.
    Not using touch correctly/ergonomically.
    Easy to say not so easy to do though. It's easy enough to do with a tablet not so easy to do with a desktop PC and a descent sized monitor. Not if you also want to be able use a keyboard and mouse.
