I can't believe I'm saying this, but... Using Windows 8 on a touchscreen notebook really opened up my eyes. I always kind of agreed with Steve Jobs and thought my arms would get tired or it wouldn't be ergonomic to use a laptop with a touchscreen. Until I started using my brother's brand new HP with one. The experience of doing the basics such as web browsing, checking e-mail, reading, listening to music is really enjoyable, for the most part... the only thing that kind of made it frustrating was Microsoft's mixing of touch friendly UI and non-touch friendly UI. However, that's a UI issue. Microsoft has been improving upon this though and I think for the most part they have it right (if you have a touchscreen). I kind of want Apple to make a touchscreen MacBook Air now.
