I am sick telling my 15 month old son that touching the screen on our MacBook is not doing anything. He is an avid iPhone user and is not making a destinction between the iPhone and the MacBook user interface. Apple is giving us touchscreen phones and now a touchscreen tablet computer. What I need is a touchscreen MacBook.

I even sometime have the urge to touch the screen on my laptop. I really think that the touchscreen and keyboard combination is the most effective for laptop use. HP is offering the HP TouchSmart TM2 convertible laptop.

It is time for Apple to offer a similar design in their MacBook line. I like to see some touchscreen user interface elements from the iPhone OS on the OS X to make the experience seamless.
Right now rumors only point to new MacBook, MacBook Pro and MacBook Air laptops with new Intel Core CPUs (i3, i5, i7) and maybe NVIDIA Optimus Dual Graphics, but no new features.

The iPad is nice, but a touchscreen MacBook would be a powerful and versatile portable computer.
