Microsoft's Windows 8 will have advanced touch support, and will rely on it quite extensively, which means that display makers finally have the perfect reason to add touchscreens to their panels.
For those who don't mind holding their arms outstretched while in front of their desk computer, Acer has created the 23-inch T232HL and 27-inch T272HL monitors.
The former uses an IPS screen and exhibits a response time of 5ms, VGA/HDMI/DVI inputs and a native resolution of, naturally, 1920 x 1080 pixels.
The latter is mostly identical, save for the fact that it uses a Vertical Alignment (VA) panel instead.
Both newcomers have transparent stands (save for the leg holding them up), which is really their only unique element.
Acer should start selling the items before the end of the month (October 2012), for $500 /500 Euro and $700 / 700 Euro, respectively. They will be alternatives, of sorts, to the Aspire 5600U and Aspire 7600U all-in-one PCs
, which look exactly the same.
