    touchscreens n stuff

    having never really looked into it, how do touchscreen lcd's work in windows?
    do u press the start button on the screen and it opens that up?.. do u need a mouse/keyboard or anything?.. or probably a better question, are they neccessary?...
    i was considering getting a lilliput 7" touchscreen, cause ive only just discovered this site and have toyed with the idea of rigging up a 'carputer'
    what do i need to build a good lil system?
    am i better off going for an inverter or some other kind of PSU for the setup?/...
    help me!

    When you touch the screen it acts as a mouse click at that point, so if you touch the windows start button, it will open the start menu.

    As for the PSU, go for a DC-DC power supply such as the OPUS, Carnetix or M1-ATX.

    Caution...you'll get a lot of people telling you to search first. A lot of the base stuff is covered in previous posts. I'd start in the newbie section and go from there. Pay attention to the stickies in each forum.
