    I wouldn't TOUCH a touch screen ... Oooppps! ... with a 50 foot barge pole ... on a desktop or laptop that is.

    Tablet and mobile phone with stylus ... fine!

    no, no, touch is great, under all circumstances (not only for tablets)! We are just reluctant towards change , against improvements and evolution etc etc. Am looking forward to the future, with all my laptop and pc screens looking exactly like this one >> http://www.notebookcheck.com/fileadm...MG_1947_02.JPG

    This is an interesting reading about the Human evolution

    Origins and Evolution of Human Language: Opposable Thumb

    Seems that we won't need the opposable thumb anymore, indeed we'll need tons of glass cleaner

    Again, they are developing fingerprint resistant screen coatings for touch screens that will make fingerprints a non-issue for touch screens. So these arguments, while valid today, are not always going to be valid... so to say that touch will fail because of it is short sighted.

    If there are no alternatives you'll do it. Given the choice of a touch screen or keyboard mouse, I'll take the keyboard mouse thank you very much.

    I absolutely abhor using a mouse with my Surface. In fact, I try not to. Why do I want to carry this extra thing with me? I bought a touchscreen pc for a reason. And, I can use a mouse with it too! Go figure!

    I wish my 42" tv was touch. Sometimes I find myself trying.

    Be careful what you wish for.

    Microsoft's 'touch screen' for any surface goes on sale

    You can bring your hand down to the tablet and use your wrist. The arm movement would be pretty much, non-existent. On a 42" monitor, arm movement would be constant. I'm almost certain that anyone using a 42" monitor would be looking for the mouse, soon after.
