Recent user testing shows that people want touch as part of their #laptop #computing experience, so tell us, do you want touch on #laptop screens?

+Paul Wooding but not for dedicated Laptops ... get yourself a tablet for a touch feature
 
I don't know. I cringe whenever someone tries to touch my laptop's screen. It's an involuntary reaction.
 
About as much as I want it on my television. (hint: no interest)
 
Given the way I use my laptop, the screen angle is usually all wrong for touch screens. What I would like is a miniature touch screen instead of a mouse touch pad. The touch screen could function for touch, mouse movement and gestures. I've often wondered why this hasn't been tried.
 
I would love to have the option. I don't have to be able to use it all the time, but sometimes it would make life so much easier others not at all so the option would be best for me.
 
Under 3 pounds .. Yes, makes sense
 
yes. but not as replacement to touchpad/mouse. but as an alternative.
 
Not really, as long as a good touchpad/trackball is provided. Besides, I agree with +Addison Hernandez - without ultra fingerprint resistant coating on it, I would cringe with touch screens too.
 
With the new Win 8 Metro interface, touch would be very useful along with the other usual traditional laptop input methods
 
NO! I don't want a laptop touch screen. The mouse get's me around faster!! LOL
 
I love touchscreens and like the idea of having one on a laptop, but am not sure that having one as the primary screen is the best idea. Asus has a few tablets that can dock with physical keyboards and essentially form a touchscreen laptop, so I agree with Ivan's comment that making powerful tablets is the better way to go.

I'd also like to see a little more flexibility in tablets. For example: a tablet could work as an autonomous device (as they currently already do), but when plugged into a computer, could serve as an additional touchscreen monitor, or could work in a similar way that the Wacom tablet does, for things like digital painting. That's a product I would buy in a heartbeat.
 
What I want is a decent tablet that can be connected to an external display, hard drives, etc. and can run the same OS as my laptop, or better, an OS version adapted to its touch screen.
 
Yes. Looking forward to the Lenovo Ideapad Yoga!
 
no thanks, it makes finger print markks all over the screen.
 
So what? that also happens with iPads, iPhones, Samsung Galaxies and so on and owners are still very happy with them.
 
Nah. The keyboard on my laptop is just fine. Save the touch screens for the devices that are too small for conventional keyboards, like smartphones.
 
No thanks. We are getting lazy enough. The operation of a mouse is just fine for me.
 
Not on my laptop that's why I have Android tablets and phones. Touch on my laptop would really be pointless.
 
Touch Enabled Screens should be standard in the next few year ...
 
My HP Pavilion has a useless two-finger zoom function that messes with regular touchpad functionality. No laptops should have a useless scroll or zoom function, and functions shouldn't ever compete with one another, unless it's really elegant. An advantage of the future typology of computers is that functions are exclusive in the sense that they are conceptually maximized; what this implies is not only universal interfaces, but universal relations between functions. Meta-tags can have statistics if they're good enough. But that's just a metaphor.
