Hi,
why? You will spend how many dollars to get a nice looking screenset? A touch screen?  And then be locked in to a manufacturer who will insist that any
addons or customisations must be purchased through them? Look, Ive got some bottom land I want to sell you...cheap as your such a special friend...would
I put you crook?

That screenset looks very much like Mach4 Industrial. With Mach4 you can make the screen anything you want. Touch screen is about the screen and Windows,
my touch screen laptop runs Mach fine. Bigger buttons helps but the touch screen is fine.

Further you can download Mach4 for free and start playing with it, new screen colours or whatever for as long as you want with the Sim(ulator) plugin.

Exactly the same as Mach4 Hobby but with greatly expanded customer support. http://www.machsupport.com/software/mach4/

Hi,
kool. Way cheaper than buying someone elses creation, you'll learn more and derive much much greater satisfaction.

Hi,
I don't know much about touch screens. My laptop has one and it works fine for the largest buttons on a Mach screen but doesn't have the resolution for small
buttons.

Do touch screens have different resolutions and how are they measured?
