    why do you want a touchscreen monitor, they're pretty much pointless in my view at the moment as there aren't any apps that can make use of them, now the cintiq is a different beast as thats pressure sensitive etc.

    Also that screen is only worth about 200 quid before the touchscreen layer adds another £150 on top, is it worth it - not really, wait a few generations for it to come down and the apps which would make use of it to come out.

    Also think of the rsi you would get working on a monitor, you need it be able to lay flat or ateast closer to a table height for it to not kill your arms, then you've got smudges which I hate on a screen.

    I would consider a multitouch tablet like the dell xt range and the upcoming asus eepc t91 mt (I think its that) as they're more suited to using your fingers on but they still suffer the lack of real apps.

    I don't want one tbh just thought it seemed like a good price, but then again I've never seen one before :)

    All the PC touch screens I've tried are shockingly bad with touch screen- although that may just be because they've been molested by hundreds of people before me

    I'd stay away from touch screen monitors until they completely know they can perfectly work ok. A friend of mine got one and they have had nothing but trouble with it

    why are they producing that crap when it's not so efficient. It's like sony ericsson's fake touch screen phones in early 2004 compared to iphone's touch screen.

    Apple should show them the way once again.

    what, if you mean the p800, p900 etc they used resistive touchscreens which was all there was back then :rolleyes:
