Hi, I'm looking into buying a touchscreen monitor for use with a Dell Inspiron 660 desktop pc rnning Windows 8 in order to fully utilise the touchscreen facilities of Windows 8.
I'm preliminary looking at the Iiyama T2250MTS or T2452MTS touchscreen monitors. Anyone had experience of these, do they fully work under Windows 8?
Any other suggestions of monitors in the £200-£350 range?
Thanks

Subscribed... to see what kind of answers you get.

Does MS or Iiyama have a Win 8 compatibility list?

I would like to check out some of the touch capability of Windows 8 myself, but I don't want to replace my nice 30" monitor.
To see what it will do, I pre-ordered on of these LEAP Motion Controllers.
I'll let you all know how well it works when it's released and I get one.

Yes just checked out the Leap website, very interesting. However, I live in the UK so can't get one!

And if you don't mind a slightly smaller diagonal (21.5"), there's another Dell worth considering.
