I've seen this but I assume you need this to use it? As you can see, I have no experience of touch screen monitors so you'll have to do some homework. Good luck.

You might do well to wait till October (I think) when Windows 8 is launched. Because it natively supports touchscreen, I imagine there will be a flood of touchscreen monitors come on the market, which should bring prices down.

Ian in Northampton That's a good theory or it could go the other way. Not long ago touch screen monitors were scarce. Now Win 8 on the horizon then possibly Touch Screens will get more expensive and ordinary screens cheaper?

I have been looking for a touch screen for some time - just to keep up to date. But when I tried win8 and "pretended" to use a touch screen I realize that I would not be able to reach most of my "screen". However I have continued to look at what is available. Before you buy look for reviews for your chosen monitor.It seems that the color is not bad ,even good, but the touch is not very accurate to the point some (all?) provide a pen to use instead of your finger.

Let us know if you find a suitable one.

I have a tablet which I use a Capacitive/Resistive touch screen Stylus Pen because the amount of grease that gets on a screen is annoying, God knows what it would be like n a monitor.

For that reason I will not be moving to Windows 8 and touch screen.

I can see the advantage of touch with small screens (toys LOL) but the idea that my main screen will end up like my oven -only i can understand how to use it because it has worn away the numbers - is not a good idea!

On the other hand the idea of putting aside the mouse and picking up a pen is a no no for me.

It also appears that the touch part is no good,at the moment, for detail work.You can now see why i have been looking for some time and i agree win8 is not for me except for testing.
