I'm thinking of a buying a laptop with a touchscreen (does not convert into a tablet).

Does a laptop touchscreen cause wrist problems? Has anyone heard of that?

Also, would people with long nails possibly scratch the screen? Is that a real problem?

I have a programming buddy who has one and it is pretty cool for swiping through lines of code. The only issue he as is when I try and show him something and I touch his screen everytime.

It seems to be pretty 2nd nature for swiping and pinch to zoom for him

i think its user by user and how high the laptop is on the surface its on. i wouldnt think it cause wrist problems, the only thing that it wouldnt be able to do as easily is be used when its perfectly flat.
