    I picked the first option because that would make the screen better more than even price (its pretty cheap to begin with so I don't mind price not being reduced)

    realistically this point is probably negligible but, its the principle. you have to figure that every additional component uses power. yeah sure you can disable it, I dont know if that necessarily stops its power draw though. sometimes when you disable things they still have power flowing (e.g. USB devices one some mobos)

    It costs 700 to fix the cracked screen you got? Thats a bit crazy considering they were selling the base config for 899.99 a while back and a while before that Office Max or Depot was offering a preconfigured one for like 650 or something...

    I would buy a new one... hp screws you if you dont have a warranty. but so does Dell and all the others. They make it cost so much that you just buy another, boosts their sales and stock value.

    love my touch screen. love it. love it. love it. I've got three other tablets and I'm constantly jabbing the screens and wondering why nothings happened. That's how much I've got used to it.

    I'd like to see the touch screen part removed altogether to improve screen quality in both durability and visual.

    With the digitizer, who needs the passive touch screen? I hope there's a way to disable the passive touch so I don't accidently do something I don't mean to do when touching the screen.

    i like both, course I'm used to my phone with a touch screen so I'm used to touching and sliding.... comes in handy, and just being able to tap something in front of you is nice in my opinion.... plus, makes sliding the scroll bar with a fingertip easy!

    But, better screen quality sure wouldn't hurt, but I'd rather have the touch than not

    I guess so but thats just dumb...do they think you will pay $700 for getting it fixed when you can BUY A NEW ONE for a little more (or in the $650 deal a little less). Bad business model but fools people who live under a rock...
