So far, I THINK LG might have that kind of monitor that they showed off back at CES but they haven't released such yet.
    Our Acer All in One computers at work (5 of them) are 23" and they tilt way down.

    But unless you are standing up, or sitting on a bar stool, they cannot be used tilted way down. In an office environment sitting at a desk, it has to stay vertical.
    Hi there
    Just wondering if you know of any decent touch monitors that could be either attached to an "Old School Engineering" Drawing board or an equivalent piece of kit that would replace a drawing board -- must be suitable for Architectural standard to scale drawings.

    Most of the decent drawing screens I've seen are FAR too small and the large monitors seem to be designed to be stand alone pieces of kit that are meant to be attached to a Wall and used either as per "Cinema" audience - i.e passively or you Stand up facing the monitor which is very tiring if you need to do fine line drawings etc.

    Here's how it needs to be used. (Pic of my drawing Board -- "Old school" type). You sit at this using an adjustable height Bar stool (My Beer isn't shown though !!).

    Cheers

    That is literally the reason why I want a touchscreen because my career field I'm going into is architecture. I prefer either sitting down at a drawing easel or standing up if the desk is high enough. Instead of old school drawing, I can possibly do this with touch. Although I may need a T-square for certain drawing apps...

    LOL.

    Maybe at some stage everything will come with touchscreens. Maybe MS will subsidise enough to erode the price difference. You don't have to use it - and I expect many won't.
