    Has anyone seen this? The commercial was on ALL weekend and now I want one! Is it any good? Is there a better one on the market? Just so you know, luvthemouse's DH has a touch screen practically indestructible laptop for work and it is very cool.

    And after 3 1/2 years, it's going in for repair... The cursor on the screen gets stuck and you have to shut down to get it to work again. That said, it is a ToughBook, and it has been through EVERYTHING! And this is the first time something has gone wrong with it.

    I will tell you, after using Chris' laptop, I like it much better than a regular one. I'd love to have a touch screen one myself...

    Ive seen the HP touchscreen Desktops but havent seen their laptops yet! I'll have to go look!

    I do feel that touchscreen will be on everything eventually, it's a much more intuitive way to work

    At the moment though, not much really supports it other than the normal click a window type stuff. We'll need to get some really great apps to support it before it becomes a must have :yes:
