Laptops, Desktops/Monitors - they should all be touchscreen
It's rather amusing that Acer and HP have got the drop on Apple putting out touchscreen Laptops first. I felt sure that Apple was going to announce that all new MacBooks would be touchscreen as soon as they released OSX 10.7 (Lion), but here they are, on 10.8 and still no touchscreen from them.
As for the Poll: Everything should have been touchscreen within 6 months of the first iPad being released as far as I'm concerned. It's really annoying going to my laptop after spending a day using a Tablet and the first thing I try to do is open an app by touching the display! Our phones and now tablets have been touchscreen for years. I've used a touchscreen monitor for my desktop for 4 years, I put a touchscreen display on a Netbook I owned a few years ago, and still, touchscreen's on Laptops aren't standard.
As for 4G - it's a nice idea, but not practical with 4G setups from carriers at present. I'll stick with my mobile wifi thingy. I turn it on and it sits in my backpack. It only costs me $99 a year and I get 12GB a year data allowance (which I've never completely used any year in the 3 years I've had it). Besides, I use my tablet mostly when I'm away from the office - I only take the laptop when I'm travelling.
