    Gary, my husband's new laptop does indeed have a touch screen. Just run your hand down the page! And, Virginia, a keyboard. If you don't look keep the one on the laptop itself, you can get a separate keyboard, mines wireless, some plug in, that might work better for you.

    Since I got my iPhone 2 years ago, I rarely use my Macbook Pro. This Christmas, Husband upgraded me (woo hoo) to a 6s plus. It is big but he thought it would help everything I do on it w the bigger screen. It does.

    Cat, I know I am way behind as far as computers are concerned, however I am a good bit older than you. In spite of that I worked part-time since 1999 until 3 years ago. About 2 or 3 years before that I brought my work in house (accounting) and was still able to make some money (well a little) until my tremor got so bad I finally gave up. I was working on desk top with keypad in the office and also here at home using an accounting program. If I had a computer problem the people I worked for fixed it, so I never learned anything other than the programs I used. Now, to be honest, I just don't care to learn like I use to. I know that is bad, but I worked for so very many years that now I had just rather read and do what I want to. Occasionally, I find something that I want to read about that is good for my mind. I was mentally active for years past what healthy people normally are due to husband's death. I have not had anyone but myself to lean on. But as Peg, says I am still here. Anyway, that is the reason I just don't want to get too involved with computers other than what I know.

    Another reason is because when I am up in the day I sit in my living room which is where I am when I read. There is an end table next to my chair and I keep my kindle and water or a snack there, but I do not have a plug in for a laptop in that area.

    Ah, Virginia, I misunderstood. I thought you only had the desktop. If you have a kindle fire, you can go online, come anywhere on the web, post, get emails, etc.

    Nope Cat, you did not misunderstand. I only have the desktop and a regular kindle - not the kindle fire. I have the lighted regular kindle just for reading books. It is my second kindle.

    Ah, I see. I'm on kindle number 4 for me. This one now is a fire. I have one like you describe, but I'm so used to the fire now I will likely not go back...

    Thumbs up

    There are so many different devices these days. I should try to keep up with them better than I do, but laptops do everything I need. I'm a one functioning hand, type with one finger, person.

    Anyone know who Stephen Hawking is? A modern Einstein, who is totally unable to move but for his eyes. He has the ultimate setup where he can do ANYTHING on a computer using only his eyes.

    I know who he is, but did not know he could operate a computer with his eyes. Talk about technology.

    My problem with the laptop is that when I have tried them in the store I can't type well at all. I need a key board, which means I have nothing but a desk top computer. This brings on the problem of having to come into my office and sit in a straight chair to come on computer.
