I don't get all the hype about having a touch screen. I have an iPad and I wish it had a mouse or trackpad. It is very hard to edit and navigate without one. So is it a good idea to have a touch screen on a laptop? I don't think so. This is especially true with Chromebooks. Why? Because there are few apps that use a touch screen to it's full potential. Since you also have a built in trackpad and a keyboard, having a touch screen is just redundant. I also don't think it is worth the extra money. I stick to my original premise when it comes to Chromebooks. Paying more money does not get you extra functionality, so buy the least expensive model and spend your money elsewhere.
What do you think?
