What are the benefits of a touch screen?

The new Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 features a touchscreen on all models. This is because, as the name suggests, it's a 2-in-1. This means it's a convertible device, and can be both a laptop and tablet when required. It has a 360-degree hinge that lets you flip the screen all the way around for use as a tablet, which is why a touchscreen is required on all models, even if you don't plan to use it.

There are many benefits of having a touchscreen on your device, such as offering the ability to reach out and tap on anything whenever you need it. Sometimes it's just more natural to press an OK button or scroll a webpage with your finger, even when using the device like a laptop. The device also has pen support, complementing the touch capabilites quite nicely.
