Re: Similarly, if you have a touchscreen
I have never understood the call for a touchscreen on laptops or desktops
I've got a touchscreen laptop (basically because the non-touchscreen version was out of stock, and the shop were happy to sell me the touchscreen version for the same price) so I was in the position of having a solution in search of a problem.
Use case number one - working on a train/plane it's not convenient to use a separate mouse and use of the trackpad is a bit iffy if bouncing around a bit...just jabbing at the screen is a little bit easier
Use case number two - some image editing is a bit more precise using a finger (or touchscreen-friendly stylus) on the actual screen compared to a mouse, and I don't want the cost or hassle of buying a separate stylus/tablet thingy
Were those use cases improved by having a touchscreen? Yes. Would I have paid extra for a touchscreen just because of those? No
Just my experience, YMMV, etc., etc.
