I still find the combination of touch and Windows a bit awkward, based on experiments with a couple of tablets, one of them from Dell. Maybe that will change as more Windows apps become touch aware.

Thank god someone finally said it. I'm so sick of this PC's are dead crap. People who do real work don't want to be tied to a tablet or some micro-device.

No touch IMPROVES productivity? On what planet? Sometimes it is more natural to touch, some to point, and other times to type. But the insanity of touch being non-work-oriented and encouraging play is stupid.

The Dell Product Line Manager has to support his ignorant decision to not put even a resistive touch screen for $25 in his device -- when he thinks it is OK for $100 Windows 7.
