    I need to get a new laptop and have found these I like have around 600 to spend.
    One is a touchscreen 1 is not, question is it worth having a touchscreen or not?

    Just some advice, the Envy has a 1080p screen where as the Pavillion has the 1366x768, which really doesn't look great.

    I think you could get better laptops at this price range. Something with at least an Intel core i5 processor and 8gb ram.

    Don't be too fussed about touchscreen. Windows 10 is coming, and will make non touchscreen devices more productive.

    Whether touchscreen or no is personal preference. contrary to what many think, it's not required for operation in Windows 8.

    It'll be less weird for those who couldn't be bothered to get used to the larger start screen rather than menu, but it's not going to necessarily be more productive any more than 8 is. (ignoring 10's improvements for everything)

    I think it's a nice option, but not needed. (used Windows 8.x on a non touchscreen laptop.)
    If it doesn't add too much cost.

    Well the deal is that I had insurance with them and now my old laptop has been written off and now have 600 to spend now obviously want the best I can get for the money.

    This is what I had before
