Last week we asked you if your next laptop is going to have a touchscreen. The results were not very conclusive, with the 400 votes being spread almost evenly between several of the options, yet one answer was the most popular by far. Which one was it?
Out of 399 votes in total, 6% of the readers haven’t decided what they think about touchscreens yet, another 6% already own a laptop with a touchscreen, 14.5% think a touchscreen would be kind of unnecessary in a laptop, 21% don’t mind it but refuse to pay more for it, 21.5% simply don’t want it, and 31% of the readers who voted say they hope to have a touchscreen on their next laptop.
Full results and this week’s poll after the jump.
Don’t forget to check out last week’s comments, which have very interesting points both for and against touchscreens on laptops, and especially the poll’s best comment by Victor Ong who won 150 reward points for his input!
This week’s poll question is: Would You Consider Shutting Off Your Cell Phone For A Whole Day?
For sure, this is a tough one. Unlike 5 years ago, today’s cell phones are much more than mere phones. For those who own a smartphone, the cellphone has become a small-scale computer, which is used for surfing, social networks and messaging way more than it’s used for actual calling. The advent of cell phones and smartphones made us all very used to being able to call, send messages and emails from everywhere, and being available no matter where we are. This is undoubtedly useful, but it can also be overwhelming at times. Would you consider shutting off your phone for an entire day, or would that be too much to bear?
Mind that the question doesn’t refer to a case of emergency, or a time when you must switch off your phone for some reason. We’re dealing with an ordinary day in your life, in which you’d simply give up your cell phone. Could you do it?
Don’t forget to explain your answers in the comments, and tell us what you think about the cell phone situation as it is today.
