    I'm anal enough about fingerprints/other crub on my laptop's screen, I'd go positively insane with a touch screen on it...especially a glossy one...

    Yeah not a big fan of those.

    AND it would be so uncomfortable to use it like that or try to type on it.

    now maybe if there were also a screen in the bottom where the keyboard is, that might be pretty cool

    fast typing on a touch pad? I don't think so. You might manage to do it, but typing more than just a few words would be a royal pain.

    In order for a touch screen to be really effective, you really need to have an OS that is designed around a touch interface... that just seems like a royal pain in that video.

    ...I hope they don't intend that for their "10" "netbook" offering...

    It seemed pretty difficult to be precise, for example closing a window on those small corner buttons. I hope the Axiotron Modbook is better than that.

    It seems the touch-screen function requires radical changes to OS X to be usable. It'd be sweet if it's going to be something like Bump with touch screen. I hope it will not end up being another MacBook Wheel.
