I wonder if you can use a stylus with those? Fingers aren't very precise and block the view of what you're pointing at.

The website says you can use any non sharp object, so i guess stylus comes under that.

Yeah really Laughing


I don't care much for the idea of a touch screen computer. I prefer my screen at a good distance, so reaching across the desk to get things done...I don't think so Smile ...maybe a touch screen keyboard???

The Microsoft Surface is a really cool product I hope they can develop it into a mature product.
