    Can anyone actually honestly say they prefer to use a touchscreen over a keyboard?

    Maybe my fingers are fatter than average or something, but i cant use the blinking things without mistyping one or two words per sentence.

    You need swype, fimbles :) Remember also that touch screens will be improving soon. We saw a story not long ago on this site about a touch screen with almost no input delay.

    Personally, i still have an ASUS eee pc netbook that works well enough for my 'internet from the couch' that I wouldn't buy a tablet, let alone a touch screen laptop.
