I think the question you need to ask is a touch screen useful to YOU..? Is a few extra grams of weight significant for YOU..?
I guess if you're using live view and like moving AF points with your finger it could prove useful (especially for movies)... though seeing as you asked... no- a touch screen is of little significance to me- though I would advocate a tilting/swivel/adjustable LCD- as these can prove very useful indeed for shooting at low angles,or over walls,heads,crowds etc... and again,especially useful for movie work...

The T3i might be an "older" model, though still a good entry level model.
However,if you plan to shoot moving subjects, the improved AF system of the T5i and faster frame rate might prove useful...

Another camera to look at would be the Nikon D5200/5300...
