    no... you're right...it's pen driven
    maybe I like to convince myself that it's better than it really is

    I do plan on taking a look at one of those Fujitsu's and seeing if the touch interface can actually just be rigged up to USB and using that.

    I only mentioned it cause I'd hate to hear some noob read this thread, ran out and bought one and was sorely disappointed to find out he couldn't use his finger on the screen. Gotta stress correct terminology around here, Enforcer is watching.

    I have just picked up an Asus 901 for cheap on eBay and I'm planning on doing just this. But I'm not extending the monitor cables, simply housing the computer behind the monitor and disconnecting the hinges and turning it around behind a bezel.

    My main reason for doing this is I'm planning on running a second screen so I figured it was one of the cheaper dual monitor solutions.

    This is my first post, btw, and if anyone can see problems with this setup please let me know. I will be using the touchscreen kit for the primary and a second touchscreen monitor (which I've yet to decide which kind) for the secondary, in mirror mode.
