If in any way possible, I much prefer mouse and keyboard over touch, touchscreen, or air (eyetoy, wii, kinect, etc.). It wouldn't be the first time I use my computer keyboard on my phone to be able to type decently. (USB keyboard, female usb -> male microusb converter.)

Lol, talk about touchscreen, or accidentally dragging something with a mouse. GUIs aren't much better than typing commands.

I agree with you on that. The problem is that I don't have the hardware to experiment with this (and I don't expect that I could develop anything better than other researchers are doing), so it's not possible yet. In the meantime, I prefer keyboard over everything, including mouse. The problem is that websites are optimized for mice, so many aren't very usable without. Touchscreen with a stylus is good for drawing, but that's the only application I can think of, and you might as well just use pen and paper for that.
I wouldn't want a laptop without a touchpad, that doesn't mean I want to use the touchpad most of the time.
I also hope that a touchscreen is a cheap or universal feature next time I make a purchase, because why not.
