Windows One of the big hypes of Windows 7 was the new integrated touch and multitouch features unheard of in previous systems. On paper, it all looks nice, but the folks over at Engadget recently tested out these said features of the beta on an HP TouchSmart PC, and were underwhelmed by the efficiency of the features.

Well, a touchscreen may not be a replacement for a keyboard, but it certainly can be a replacement for a mouse. In fact, a decent touchscreen works better than a mouse in many cases. It's just useless if whatever you're doing requires any typing.
