    I think I saw something about an Apple laptop with a touchscreen coming out in october. Any info on this?
    I've always that it would be great to have a laptop where you use your fingers to open folders etc. It works great on the iPhone, so why not on a laptop.

    I don't think the touchscreen is coming out, but then again I was the guy that said the iPhone price was going to be subsidized long before it came out and everyone said I was full of it. Oh yeah, I was right, and where is all the money people bet me?

    it would be soo impractical.
    i mean a multi-touch phone is practical
    but a multi-touch laptop isnt. think about it.
    typing would be a pain, even if there was a usb port for external keyboard(defeats the purpose of a laptop).
    it would be more for oohs and aaahs not practicality.
    and the with the pricetag im sure would be high specially to start.(look at the iPhones starting price)

    a laptop similar to what you speak of already exists. its called the modbook and is basically a pen-based laptop converted with permission from apple into a tablet. its not multi touch or even "touch" for that matter but it might as well be the same
