Hi everyone,

For years now, I've drooled over the Wacom Cintiq: http://www.wacom.com/lcdtablets/index_17SX.cfm but its cost is a bit prohibitive for me so I was thinking, could a touchscreen LCD be used (like this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16824016047 ) in a similar fashion? But what is the accuracy of such screens? If you used a stylus on one would the cursor just get in the general vacinity or would it be really accurate? Obviously you have to give up things like pressure sensitivity in such a system but for 1/3 of the cost I could learn to live with that if it worked otherwise.

If anyone has any insight or experience with touchscreens please chime in.

Thanks,
Joshua
