@ Frank. without a question, it will be a more intuitive interface, especially for OLD/new users.. like my parents for eg. my mom rarely uses a pc and has problems with using a mouse/kb combo. so I bought her a DELL AIO with touch screen. she says its much better with the touch interface..

I just don't get it. How & why would you use a touchscreen on a notebook computer? If the screen is detachable and can function on its own as a tablet, then sure. But when configured as a notebook with the screen flipped open and the keyboard & touchpad facing the user? Why? I also wonder if there are changes in the mechanical design so it is less likely a user will accidentally move the computer when pushing on that upright screen.

Dylan, I am surprised that it takes that long to reach a mere 25% in the notebook market. I would have guessed that by end of 2014 most notebooks would feature a combination of keyboard and haptic interface for user interaction. MP Divakar
