I didn't get the touch panel one actually. Honestly I think it may be able to accept 1280x800 over HDMI. He ended up offering me a partial refund and I'm going to keep it. We'll see if I'm able to use it for what I need. I'll likely grab one of the multi touch panels from tft_lcd when he gets them (6.95"). The touch panel model doesn't have a touch panel controller and I didn't feel like trying to find one to work.
