I wish I did. But I have seen women with touch screens.

Too damn expensive to replace touch panel every month

There are two types of touch screen, single touch and multi touch.

The single touch works like a mouse.

The multi touch on the right operating system can do resizing and a few other functions.

I enjoy using my iPad all day long. I can sit in an easy chair and browse AAC in comfort. However, when it is time to respond to a post at great length I have to resort to a regular keyboard.

For the past 2 weeks my laptop was down and I was using the wife's IPad. Maddening. I hate touch screen for regular computing.

I know, but I'd have to see one yet (other than product announcements or TV ads). conventional (single touch) are very common, they are everywhere. Maybe one of recent consumer product has made it to the market (iPad?) but I am not selling kidneys to chase trends.

I've been doing all of my internet activity including this forum on a multitouch smart phone with a slider keyboard for a couple of months. It's certainly more cumbersome than a full size computer but it works.

I have replaced my laptop with an ASUS EP121
It is 12.1" touchscreen, with two touch inputs. It runs Windows 7
You can press two fingers, move together to zom out, move apart to zoom in.

It also has pressure sensitive pen input, which I use with photoshop, line thickness or paint intensity changes with pressure.

When you click in a text field, a keyboard will appear on screen. Or a button on the side can be pushed to bring it up. The onscreen keybouard is as large as some hardware keyboards I have used.
I do touch-type, however, with a touchscreen I have to go slower,
1) If I go at full speed, I will hurt my fingers by hitting it too hard, there is no give by the keys
2) There is no feedback from the keys, if you are hitting them too low, you won't know until you start to miss.

In addition, the machine comes with a wireless (bluetooth) keyboard, which is great for those times you want to write war and peace.

I have 1725's (17") and 1928's (19") touch screens made by ELO, connected to regular ol' computers. They work just like a USB mouse. Cool to play with, but a wad of money.
