Touch Screen PC Productivity – Gimmick or Not?

touch_screen_pc_400Touchscreen devices have been all the rage for around a decade and have brought a degree of mobility to business that was unheard of only a short time ago. At first it was the smartphone, followed by the 10-inch tablet, and then the smaller tablets; which are designed for media consumption. This recent trend, which provides a superior user experience, has integrated touch screen usability into the expectations of end users. Recently, some of the largest and most recognizable personal computer manufacturers have begun making hybrid laptop computers that have all the capabilities of a powerful laptop, but come equipped with a touchscreen display. Can these all-in-one devices be just what your business needs to get to the next level?

Business professionals have long used laptops as some of their top productivity machines, because it gave them the ability to do work away from the office and not be all that limited by the hardware and software capabilities of the machine. Where the laptop was great for the business professional, the tablet is great for consuming content and limited productivity through the use of integrated mobile apps. The hybrid computers that are available now combine the ease-of-use of a tablet with the full-scale capabilities of a laptop PC, making many tasks that much easier. These capabilities allow users to do the work they need to do and still have an easy-to-use and easy-to-carry device in which to facilitate their Netflix addiction.

With the newest operating systems all geared toward the touchscreen user, it seems like the future is now for touchscreen hardware. For example, there has also been a boost in sales of desktop PCs equipped with touchscreen interfaces. These devices are static and cumbersome, and while they are initially interesting to use, most users long for the traditional computing method within minutes when their arm begins to tire. Since laptops have smaller displays, even the true hybrid models that contort into a tablet can be used in a traditional fashion out of the box with no additional expense to the user.
