I see you are enrolled in – Geek U – You really should research this yourself – Research – is one of the best tools you can have - Touch-screen monitors have become more and more commonplace as their price has steadily dropped over the past decade. There are three basic systems that are used to recognize a person's touch:
· Resistive
· Capacitive
· Surface acoustic wave
You can start your research by going to following Websites-

Google - http://www.google.co...:en-US:official

PC Magizine - http://www.pcmag.com...2...eens&site=3

How Stuff Works - http://www.howstuffworks.com/

Consumer Report - http://www.consumerr...uters/index.htm

(3) Reviews
(4) Manufacturers
(5) Price
(6) Look at Manufacturer’s Support Pages – To determine degree of Support –
(7) Check out Warranty Policy
(8) FAQ Pages
(9) Click on – Sub-Link Pages

Here are some – Cost Factors – to consider –

(1) Compatibility & Upgrade Costs requirements for/to – Your PC System – Motherboard – Video Card – Power Supply
(2) Use Environment – Home Use – or [Factory Use – Lab Use –
(3) Type –
(4) Number of Operators – that will be using the screen – Wear & Tear Factor –
(5) Size –
(6) Resolution –

I just think – by inquiring yourself – your own personal needs/goals would be better met –

My answer would have been based on – Factors – of what – good – means to me. . . . . The –point – is you did not know the source or creditability of the – Answers – You would have to do your own research in the end, anyhow . . . . Whenever, you had to –justify – your selection –

Good Luck –
