Tips for buying a touch-capable display for Windows 8

Tools

PCWorld has a report by Loyd Case that highlights a number of tips and facts that are still not widely known about getting a desktop display for the touch-optimized Windows 8 operating system. Case also discussed a number of displays from Acer, Dell (NASDAQ: DELL) and Planar that are currently available for purchase.

Of course, Case does concede that touch-ready desktop displays are still pretty expensive, given that Windows 8 was released less than a month ago. Users should also be aware that they are limited to 1920x1080 full HD resolutions offerings for now--even for larger 27-inch models.

Interestingly, Microsoft's (NASDAQ: MSFT) stringent certification requirements for Windows 8 displays meant that these LCD monitors support at least five simultaneous touch points and come with built-in HID support. This also means that a spare USB port is all that is required to support an external touch display.

Finally, the current design adopted by the various manufacturers utilizes a display that is flush with the bezel. This is aesthetically pleasing, and is really the result of accommodating Windows 8 gestures that require swiping from the edge of the screen. You can read the original article here.
