    So it looks like the touch panel is integrated in the glass that spans the entire front of the monitor, much like a tablet.

    This would make it impossible to remove the LCD from the housing and...

    I appreciate the offer, but USPS shipping still appears to be ~$40.

    I don't mind paying the sales tax at the border, it's part of buying stuff in Canada.

    What bugs me is that it appears...

    Can anyone suggest a Canadian retailer for the 2140? Shipping from the US is half the price of the PSU.

    Thanks.

    I think tablets in their current form generally make for messy installations and it's why people go with a separate PC/monitor.
