That's what we're talking about today in the Windows Central Forums. A lot of Windows 10 laptops have touchscreens, but a lot do not. And when you're buying a new laptop, touchscreens usually add to the price.
So is it worth getting? Is it something that's really useful?
On some PCs, 2-in-1s especially, the touchscreen isn't negotiable, it's just there. And arguably if this is the type of PC you're buying then you probably want to touch it, even use the pen. But then you have things like the Surface Laptop which has a touchscreen and pen support, but do people really use it?
Personally, I much preferred Windows 8 when it came to using a touchscreen. I've never had the same good feelings from Windows 10, and I'll actively avoid using a touchscreen whenever I can. I used to have a Dell XPS 13 that launched on Windows 8, and I stopped touching the display when it upgraded to Windows 10.
Now I don't even have a touchscreen laptop and I don't miss it at all. If, like me, you're either gaming or typing something, there's not really much use for it.
But how about you? Are you pro or against touchscreens on Windows laptops? HIt the forums thread below and let us know.
