    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.

    Well, because 27" is just too big for a computer monitor on my desk. 23" is actually what I prefer, but the nicer displays seem to be 24", like the Dell U2410. Also, want to be sure that I have a resolution that my video card can handle for gaming at the monitors native resolution.

    none of those monitors have capacitive touch... right now, it looks like the Acer is the only affordable touch model.

    I wouldn't say 27" is too big. For one of my dad's PCs, he has a 47" HDTV. On his desk. It's pretty amazing actually.

    actually, this bothered me when I first tried it. but I realized I was rushing it. once I got a sense of how to really activate it, it's super easy. it's the same as swipe for the charm but instead of lifting off, you swipe back. and the motion can be super slow. you don't need to rush it or have it be a clean continuous swipe. it's totally easier than the mouse way of going to the hot corner and then pulling down.

    Get the new Logitech touch pad as it is better ergonomically and adds touch. You can use a mouse for moving around.

    To each his own I guess. I have a 23" on my desk at the present time, and would not be comfortable with anything bigger.

    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.
