A Magic Touch

Introducing what could possibly be the easiest way to convince a toddler you have magic powers.

When looking at this Asus 15.6" Core i5 VivoBook Touch, it's natural to consider the work you can do or the games you can play, but really, in only considering those aspects, you're missing out on the best part.

What's that best part, you ask? Well, it's simple: fooling our children or nieces and nephews into thinking we're magicians.

It doesn't take much. All you need to do is call them over, prop your VivoBook up on a table, and then go into Paint and draw a picture, play a game, or turn on a movie -- and do it all with a swipe of your fingertip.

Then, when the kid starts shouting "I wanna try! I wanna try!" you quickly go to the settings, turn off the touchscreen capability, and relinquish the computer. They'll try to repeat your touchscreen success, but it won't work! Their eyes will widen, and they'll acknowledge that, yes, indeed you are a magician.

That, or they'll punch the screen out of frustration or spit up on the keyboard, but that's up to you to stop that from happening. We can only do so much.
