    Default Excessive typing can damage the screen?

    Hi, I bought my n5800 yesterday! yay!. Now, the question, will it be affected if i use it to type around 500-2000 words a day? by affected I mean if the touchscreen's life will reduce?

    No. I probably have used the screen to type more words than that in a day. Especially if you play games (Raving rabbids do have extensive screen tapping)

    I think it's ok as long as you don't crash your fingers into the screen... But that's obvious.

    From what I understand, the 5800 has a 4-wire resistive touch screen, hence the calibration options. After a million taps or so, the screen becomes less accurate and loses the calibration, so you calibrate it again.
