Can Windows 8 run on a laptop with no touch screen?

Episode 1078 (21:45)

Steve from Culver City, CA

Steve wants to upgrade to a better laptop with Windows 7, but he doesn't want a touch screen. Best Buy is telling him they aren't available anymore and Windows 8 without touch has problems. Leo says that's just nonsense. Windows 8.1 is great with a mouse and no touch screen. It's stunning how poorly educated brick and mortar sales people have become.

Leo says go ahead and get one with Windows 8.1. It'll run just fine.
