Once again Intel is trying to save the PC industry just like the efforts they provided in designing the Ultra books. It happens when the majority of large PC makers lack the effort to challenge the Apple hardware ecosystem.

[citation][nom]alidan[/nom]why cant we invest in wacom like touch screens for a mobile device. i would so pay money for one.[/citation]

The Wacom type screens are the only ones I really care about having on a device larger than a smartphone. I actually own an X201T with that technology, and use it daily at work for taking notes.

That's why I'm looking forward to the Surface Pro. I use my iPad to take notes right now and it's mediocre due to the lack of the active digitizer.

That would be very nice, probably just too expensive for mass production.

LOL.... all this talk about supply for touch-based Windows.

Then the shock when very few people are actually buying them!

Very few people are making use of touch-screen desktops. Its a gimmick for the first 1-3 weeks and then its back to the mouse. Two friends bought such things for their home.

It really depends on who uses the touchscreen and why. I personally use the mouse more often, but a quick jump to a different monitor could help. As for my kids and less tech savy friends/family, they would love the ease of touchscreens for some applications/games.

As much as Intel has been the giant in the processor market, it's nice to see them battling it out and making things more competitive in a market where they are not the dominant player.

I can't complain...I think competition is a good thing. The more people fighting in the market, the better the products and prices will be (hopefully).

Intel should have invest in software development for driving high AI intelligent for day to day casual use & speech recognition that make heavy use of their CPU to absolute accuracy.

they can easily stop the PC industry bleeding to mobile market, if Desktop computer are "Intelligent enough & have insane accurate speech recognition"

I am stilling waiting for a viable way to getting rid of Keyboard and mouse.

What partners? Who wants to make crapphones with huge x86 CPUs? Maybe they'll have fans too to blow hot air during cold winter nights while talking on the phone.

Dude, smartphones and tablets are not replacing desktops and laptops. That's a ridiculous claim!
