While some laptops are available with only a touchscreen option you can still find non touchscreen laptops on the market. There’s such a wide range of laptop options that it’s no wonder so many work at home professionals aren’t certain which option will work best for them. Recently I shared my experience with a touchscreen laptop but today I wanted to share the pros and cons to guide you forward in making the decision.
Pros of Touchscreen Laptop
- Powerful machine and easy to use.
- Lightweight and no need for extra mouse.
- Detachable keyboard makes ease of use.
Cons of Touchscreen Laptop
- Small in size so bulky fingers may make typing difficult.
- Detachable keyboard may not appeal to everyone.
- Looks like a tablet more than a laptop.
While there isn’t much to compare when it comes to the pros and cons of a touchscreen laptop, there’s certainly a few downsides and upsides to this option. Work at home professionals have determined what size of laptop and keyboard makes them most efficient, if you are stuck with needing a larger size laptop then perhaps the smaller touchscreen laptop wouldn’t be good fit.
Pros of Non Touchscreen Laptop
- You feel more in control of the laptop using buttons vs fingers.
- No worries about the touchscreen acting up.
- More low cost options.
Cons of a Non Touchscreen Laptop
- Not as easy to work from the comfort of your bed.
- Bulkier in size, so not as easy to travel with.
- Must have the keyboard attached at all times.
While there also are not many pros and cons to the non-touchscreen laptop, there are some and when it comes to picking what you will use as your next work at home laptop, your preference does matter. Many work at home professionals prefer to have ease of use and ability to take their machine anywhere while others like a device that stays put.
