According to a new report from DisplayBank, who is a division of market research firm IHS, around 10% of all Windows 8-based notebooks sold in Q1 2013 have a touchscreen. Their report claims that 46 million notebooks shipped in the three-month period, with 4.57 million of those being touchscreen-capable notebooks.

This means that compared to the previous quarter, touchscreen-based notebook sales have surged 51.8%. While sales of notebooks are strong, how many of those 4.57 million consumers actually put their hand forward and touch their screen for day-to-day use?
