Re: [WIN8] Windows 8 --- What benifits over W7-64? I don't even like the touch pad on my laptops. It's so inprecise and I find it tiring. Not that I use my laptop keyboard either. I have external mice and keyboards at home and at work.
I use a mouse for everything. It is very precise and economical in terms of movement. I have the mouse scroll wheel set to scroll one visible page length per wheel increment. I can quickly scroll thought any document with small, precise movements and not miss anything, all with both of my palms resting comfortably and my elbows at the ergonomically recommended 90 degree angle.
I can't even image trying to select and highlight a few words of text to cut and paste to another location using a touch interface and touch keyboard. It would drive me nuts.
When I'm travelling, I can barely stand composing a 20 word e-mail on my Playbook. Sure, its fine for writing "i'll get back 2 u" But it would be hell trying to edit a 30 page proposal with graphics and screen captures.
