Don’t you all think that over the next few years we will say goodbye to the mouse ( not the keyboard ) for most of the apps we use ? .... I’m up for a touchscreen and move all those knobs and hit those pads … YEAH

Touchscreens are great if it is the primary input, but I don’t see it replacing the mouse. Doing so would be a huge step back as far as input devices go. The mouse sits next to the keyboard, and using it requires you to move your arm only a short distance from the keyboard. A touchscreen requires you to stretch one or more arms over the desk. It’s a huge productivity hit. In order for a touchscreen to work as a user input device, it needs to be the only, or primary, input device. Anything else is cumbersome, an annoyance, and counterintuitive.

Gesture navigation is already huge in R&D circles. gesture navigation will take over. Seriously, we already surpassed minority report when it comes down to the technology that is currently in R&D.

I’m still convinced there isn’t going to be any tablet. I think the MacBooks will get an i7 mobile :)

I think they’ll eventually bring one to the table, but I won’t attempt to guess if they will this month. I see all this hype as the same as the hype surrounding the iPhone before its announcement. We saw iPhone rumors fly around for at least six months before it was officially announced. Whether or not this is the same type of free marketing remains to be seen, but there is some correlation with past Apple products.

One thing is sure, Apple surpise us as always. I remember once that I was talking with my brother in law (who’s a Mac partner) and was asking him if Apple will manage to surprise us with some kind of new iMac, personally I was like: yeah I don’t know iMac’s are allready at top, well guess what, they came with the 27” :)

OK, i see.. as most of you speak about using a touchscreen for “regular” computer based work, sure you prefer using a keyboard and a mouse. Just think about other new possibilities that a touchscreen offers for people who would love to have one ;)

Your assertion was the touchscreen will replace the mouse. As I said, a touchscreen has to be the primary input device in order to be feasible solution. The links you provided bolster that statement.

Steve Jobs reportedly said that this is the most important creation/invention whatever in his life. He wasn’t this psyched about the iPhone or iPod. People from the type world who have seen the tablet have said that comparing it to the kindle is like comparing color tv to black and white tv.
