You can have a quick look or features how it works in the video below.
On my personal front, I would recommend this accessory if you do not have touch functionality on your laptop.
If you carry laptop here and there in your backpack, then I would recommend you to carry a holder for AirBar as it is not robust and it may bend if it does not handle properly while travelling.
I will Suggest using a laptop screen protector so prevent accidental scratches on the screen (will confirm whether it works laptop having screen protectors).
So what you think of using this gadget as your daily driver?
