Understandably companies with touchscreen technology would indeed want to expand this tech over to other products to make them more stylish, more high tech and more desirable to consumers. Since there have been touchscreen iterations of TVs, watches, mp3 players and even keyboards and mice. All of which are viable applications of the technology, it does allow for friendlier user interface in certain devices, whilst being slightly overkill, but still stylish, in others.

Some touchscreen desktops now do include the feature of tilting back to make the product slightly ergonomic which will definitely improve the product. However the main downfall is that there is no support in the form of software or even apps for touchscreen desktops as people struggle to hit the scroll bar on a website with their finger. Even when simple tasks such as scrolling down a webpage is proven difficult, the product simply fails to meet the desires of the consumer and would only be an effort to use.
In conclusion, touchscreen desktops are a horrible piece of design with next to no thought for user comfort, making it a very user-unfriendly piece of design. However with the release of Windows 8 and a more ergonomic redesign, it may become a much better piece of design in the future.
