@ 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

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
