Touch-Screen Notebooks to Cease Production?

Original article was posted on DigiTimes.

 

From KitGuru's article:

"From now on touch-screens will only be added to 2-in-1s and ultrabooks. Traditional notebooks and gaming notebooks will no longer feature touchscreens, according to the report that cites sources from the upstream supply chain."

 

So apparently demand for touch-screen notebooks has been too low to make them viable, and as such touch-screens as a regular feature are going to cease production by the end of this year. 2-in-1 devices and many ultrabooks will still feature touch-screens, however.

Just figured it'd be worth posting this, considering Linus' recent comments on is Aorus X3 video about how touch-screens are a valuable feature to some.

AND, with the reveal of Windows 10 (10? Really?), do you think this could counterproductive for Microsoft?

Dammit. I tried to be helpful!

Don't worry about it, around here within 3 minutes of an article publishing somewhere in the world, this forum is blown up with reports of it. If you ever need up to date news here is the best place I've found lol. :)
