Too much sense? Yes, its that fascistical little design nazi Steve Jobs gnawing away in your head again, denying you the right to think how YOU want and use any and all devices how YOU choose.

First off - its a matter of cost. Why add something at great expense only a few people will use? I guess you think all Macs should come with every legacy port imaginable just in case...

More importantly... oh, fuck it.. there are so many more importantly reasons I can't be screwed. You surely don't 'get' Apple, suffice to say.

Anything. Just ONE thing.

Er, price? Let's low ball it and say a touch-screen and associated hardware that large would just be $100-150. There you, you've just doubled the GPU budget with money to spare for more baseline RAM and bigger HDD.

Touch computing definitely calls for a near-horizontal display.

I wonder if anyone ever modded one of those old lamp iMacs with a touchscreen. It seems too obvious to not have been done.
