shk292: Never.  I really don't want greasy fingerprints over my laptop screen.  Occasionally I catch the kids using it but the threats are now taking effect.


screen wipes

Yep, but I don't want to be cleaning my screen every day.  And I find the mouse quicker and more precise, especially with a high-res screen (1600x900 on 14 inch)

Maybe it's an age thing?


Yes.

IMHO you should let them play, it's designed to be used :)

I got a laptop with a touch screen and didn't think that I would ever use it. Now I find that I switch between the keyboard, touchpad & touch all the time. I find that I scroll web pages with touch. One thing that I have discovered, when using another non-touch computer, I find myself going to touch the screen and getting funny looks from people trying to work out what I am doing.
