Touchscreen laptops have exploded onto the market in the way of the Windows 8 hype brought about by the first seriously touchscreen enabled OS ever brought out to the main PC market. This is a huge step for technology in general as we see modern PC’s move in the direction of the ever popular tablet and smartphones , the classic touch enabled devices that have skyrocketed in popularity over the past five years. When looking for a touchscreen laptop you’d be surprised at how affordable some of the more budget models are. You can quite easily find a touchscreen laptop for windows 8 under 700 dollars even on today’s market, and that’/s before the oncoming touchscreen craze that is set to hit us when Windows 8n is finally released.
Naturally on the budget end of the scale you aren’t going to find anything with groundbreaking specs but you can still find a solid dual core that will do the job . Hell, it’s a touchscreen for God’s sake just using it makes you feel cool. All in all this is an exciting time in the PC market and it’s still not exactly clear what the final outcome will be. Many analysts predict that touchscreens will exceed the popularity of normal laptops within the next two years.
One can never be sure though and Windows 8 has received some mix reviews in some circles. That said either way it’s the future – if Windows 8 fails, you’ll be sure Windows 9 will be hot on the heals fixing all of the teething problems that the touchscreen revolutions brings with it. A gripe that some have with Windows 8 is that is only really full functional on a touch screen device, meaning older laptops are probably better off sticking with Windows 7. Apparently they even went as far as removing the Start Menu completely. The final truth remains to be seen though, and Microsoft still have a few golden months to put the final tweaks in place that will make or bring their latest OS.
