Interesting. I would have thought Chrome would have been a better fit for the laptop but I guess Intel is keen to push Touch and Android is much better suited to that end.
I wonder too if this is a ploy to encourage MS to lower its prices too?
To me it looks like Intel is pushing touch as a must have feature to try and get everyone to upgrade but I see it mostly as a fad myself (kinda like 3D TV). It's kinda interesting but ultimately not upgrade worthy.
Though if someone implemented it in such a way that it really did add value then I would be happy to change my mind.
