Guys who use this; do you have any inputs? - 05-09-2009, 11:54 PM
Does the laptop screen become fragile /delicate to use? esp if kids are going to use it?
Any chance of finger or stylus tapping causing the touchscreen to crack or break?
any scratches / other issues?
do you use it often to justify the the upgrade?
I am on the fence for a long time and really want to buy this one ops: but I cannot make up my mind as yet.

Re: Solderless touchscreen - 05-10-2009, 03:47 AM
I tripped on the AC cord last night and sent Dell Mini flying off couch onto carpeting, slamming lid closed hard landing. The Mini just went into sleep mode and nothing else happened. The touchscreen might crack from direct impacts or twisting off, but shouldn't break in normal use. The rubber bumpers supplied surrounding touchscreen help to protect. It cleans up fine wiping away inevitable fingerprints. Kids would need to follow same respect any plastic screen demands.
If Mini is used on desktop with typical long laptop viewing distance, touchscreen loses usefulness. If used close to face (handheld or on chest lying) finger control becomes very handy, it then feels more natural than angling to trackpad. But it never replaces traditional input, instead offers more options depending on what's on screen.
