Touch has already beaten the mouse. The majority of PCs sold (notebooks) are sold with touchpads, not miceā€¦

What do you classify as a mouse when speaking in terms of notebooks? Are you referring to the nub that say Thinkpads have? If so it all comes down to personal preference but I'd say I'm way more accurate with the nub on my Thinkpad than with the touchpad. I can move to any part of the screen faster with the nub and if for example I'm using the lasso tool in Photosohp I'm way more accurate with the nub. But maybe you're referring to something else?

I will probably continue to buy laptops with touchpads and mostly use them with a mouse.

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.
