touch screen/multi-touch PC's and Ecabinetsystems

Postby Karl Shikles » Wed, Aug 29 2012, 10:19AM

I am looking to buy a new Desktop PC to replace/supplement the aging laptop that is currently my sole computer. I'm noticing that a lot of the touch-screen all-in-one PCs seem to be priced pretty similarly to their tower-cased counterparts these days. While it seems like a fun gimmick to have on your computer, I'm wondering if these have any real value to ecabinetsystems users. Does anyone have any thoughts/experiences with this? Thanks again.

Karl...
I tried the touchscreen aspect. Didnt work as well as my trackball for eCabs design. Your mileage may vary, but I find them less precise when you need them to be.

Most "all in ones" dont have the ability to select or upgrade the video card. Ensuring that you have a properly speced NVidia QuaddroFX (with a ton of RAM) is one of the best insurance policies you can buy to have a great eCabs machine.

Gary,

That's my impression as well. I'm not too thrilled about the idea of being stuck paying for laptop components (i.e. RAM) when it's time to upgrade, either. Ya do hafta admit that the concept is pretty cool, however.
