I used a touchscreen MacBook Air to write this column.

No, you didn’t misread the previous sentence. Nor did you overlook a new product announcement from Apple, which despite all the company has done to popularize multi-touch on the iPhone and iPad, has long resisted the urge to put touch screens on its Macintosh computers… More at USA Today.

Not sure if this is a good idea or not. Guess it will all be down to how well it works.

One thought on “I’m using a touchscreen MacBook Air

  1. I don’t see the attraction, given the differences in the way one holds a tablet / phone and a computer. I’d have to keep holding my arms out to touch the screen, and that wouldn’t be comfortable for long.

    For launching software or tapping menu buttons, I tend to use a keyboard shortcut, or the trackpad is fine, so not sure I feel like I’m missing anything here.
