    I love my touch screen laptop. I will give a word of caution - be careful using touch on surveys because some will auto boot you thinking you are using a tablet or phone. It can be awesome for batch work though

    I've even coughed too hard or sneezed fast and had things happen on the screen (other than needing to clean it off LOL)



    eta: I really hope Friday afternoon Z's don't become a thing I'm usually on the road at that time.

    I do some surveys on a 2 in 1 tablet/notebook and so far that hasn't happened but I'll be careful! This is the first time in 15 years or more that I haven't gone for the bottom of the line when it came to computers and while I'm not going crazy it's a lot more machine than I've had. That feels really good.

    Thank you school bonus and turking!

    me too and then, when I saw it, I first thought it was greater than 500k and realized how very very far from that I am. Then, when I noticed the "not" I felt a little better. lol
