touchsmart or touchdumb? touchscreen isn't a real touchscreen, but rather an IR ring around the front of the monitor that tracks the position of your finger on a 2D plane. When the plane is broken, it interprets that as a mouse click. It isn't microscopically precise, but the big buttons of the custom interface help compensate for that to a degree. Sure, it looks great, but sometimes its choppy or laggy in reacting to your touch, making it feel less than intuitive.Another con is Keyboard is missing media keys and it uses a mobile CPU.It's all about hype and looking slick but who cares if it doesn't add some form of functionality or improvement on the user experience.
