    On verge of buying a new laptop and undecided if to get touchscreen or get a better spec non touch? I am thinking that to get the best out of windows 8 I will need touch, but saying that I have never tried windows 8 yet, so can anyone offer an opinion on this?

    Cheers

    My friend has a laptop that has a swivel screen so it can be used as a tablet and a desktop etc, has fingerprint reading to unlock it and touchscreen also.

    It's a nice feature to have (touchscreen) but you can't get your work done as fast as using a mouse and a standard keyboard (as opposed to onscreen touch kb).

    I would say to get a touchscreen for windows 8, as it's really built as a phone/tablet OS in my opinion, can't really get used to it as a general workhorse machine to get work done quick like windows 7 etc.
