Do computers now all need to switch to being touch screens? Is buying a touch screen computer necessary or not important?
No. That's not important at all.

No touch screen on my computer. Awkward to say the least. And with what is, apparently, arthritis setting into my elbows and shoulders there is no way I want to have to reach out to touch it. A wireless keyboard in my lap, connected to my laptop on a folding tray, next to my recliner is where it's at.

Tablets and phones. No biggie.
