Adding a touch screen to Windows 8: ViewSonic's TD2740

Boot Camp feature for Monday, August 19, 2013

Adding a touch screen to Windows 8.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.   It isn’t a must, but Microsoft designed Windows 8 to be used with touch screens.   That’s why so many notebooks have been shipping with that capability.   If you have a desktop, you can add a touch screen display too.   ViewSonic is out with some impressive new monitors with Windows 8 ten point touch certification that can change the whole Windows 8 experience.   Product Marketing Manager Kenneth Mau…

“The way that people are interacting, because of mobile devices, because of the way people are used to interacting has changed dramatically.   I mean 10 point touch is really the future and not only for consumers, but for commercial applications.   The TD2740 is really a great addition to our existing product line.”

That’s a 27 inch touch screen that can stand upright or lay flat and is priced at about 800 dollars.   You can find us at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
