It’s 2018. Why don’t we have multitouch screen Macs?

The company line is that it’s not ergonomic — that having to reach up and across to touch the screen of a Mac to get things done is inefficient and that trying to make the Mac interface work for mouse and for fingers would require too many compromises.

But adding multitouch to the Mac doesn’t remove the existing keyboard or mouse controls any more than making the Smart Keyboard for iPad Pro removed the taps and swipes.

So, for real, why isn’t Apple making any multitouch Macs?
