    Where can I get a cheap touchscreen??

    I am planning on building my first CarPC. I am new to all of this, I figure that I will want a touchscreen since it seems the most practical input device. But they seem very pricey to me. Where is the best place to get one and what is the difference in all this about 4 wire, 5 wire, capacitance, etc??
    links??

    touchscreen as a tuchscreen overlay and controller or touchscreen lcd?
    If you meant touchscreen overlay: the 4wire resistive would be the cheapes because they are more common (more demand->more products->lower price)
    and what are you looking for? any desing in particular, small, large, self-adhesive, with glass?
    usually the price expresses the product, good one goes around $100 at least (including controller- based on 10.4"size)
