Why get a 24" when you can get a 27" with 2560x1440 resolution for the same price (less actually)? I have one of these, and they're fantastic.

I like the new OS too. It only took me about 1/2 hour to get used to it and realize I could do everything I did in 7 in a way that is as efficient, although different.
I doubt that I will get a touch screen in the near future though, as I am perfectly happy with the keyboard and mouse.
Maybe when more vendors enter the Windows tablet market I may give it a try and will enjoy the touch screen input there.
none of those monitors have capacitive touch... right now, it looks like the Acer is the only affordable touch model.
Get the new Logitech touch pad as it is better ergonomically and adds touch. You can use a mouse for moving around.
When the Dell U2410 and the Asus PA238Q monitors were mentioned above, I thought I'd screwed up and paid too much for my Acer. Some quick research showed I had not missed these monitors after all since, as dirtyvu has already mentioned, these are not touch screen monitors.
Also, agree with Mystere, touch works great for some things, the mouse for others. It's only been a little over a week and I'm getting pretty proficient switching back and forth without really thinking about it.
