Troll Touch lets iMac and MacBook fans get touchy-feely with their Apple gear.
Apple's shiny new iMacs
debuted last month have just about everything, including a multi-touch mouse, but surprisingly, they don't have anything to match Windows 7's touchscreen capability. Never fear, however -- an ingenious third party company is melding the two together for touchscreen-curious Mac purchasers.Troll Tech
has announced that it has new analog resistive touch kits for the 21.5-inch and 27-inch iMac computers. The company also makes touch screen kits for the unibody MacBook notebook computers as well.
You can opt to purchase the iMac touchscreen kit alone for a whopping $1,183.79 ($US1,099) or you can get your iMac with the touchscreen kit installed already for an even larger fee of $2,476 ($US2,299) for starters. That starting price is undoubtedly for a base model 21.5-inch iMac. Delivery of the new kits and machines is set to start before December 1, 2009 according to Engadget. I wonder when Apple will offer integrated touch screens on its computers. Availability in Australia is unknown, it is interesting kit -- and no doubt there is a way to get a kit shipped here.
