is a touch screen on a laptop really worth the extra money?

I’m looking for a new computer for college right now and a lot of them offer a touch screen. The thing is, they’re often about $150 more than others of similar (or sometimes higher) specs. So is there any real use for a touch screen that i have to reach over the keyboard to use? Or should I just pick up a regular, non-fingerprint absorbing laptop

Just pick a normal laptop since the whole touch screen thing seems pointless.
It’s just another gimmick that people think “Touch is superior to anything."

Touch screens are overrated and gimmicky.

The good thing for you is you should be able to pick up a laptop at much cheaper seeing as though the touch screen has much higher demand

I don’t think so. That’s one of the reasons why they have tablets.

And it depends how much the touchscreen is gonna add to the labtop. If a labtop goes up $100 just because it has a touchscreen, then I wouldn’t buy it.

Touch screen keyboards are annoying as fuck just go with the labtop.
