    Hi, I was going to get a 1.42 eMac and buy a 17" touchscreen CRT and put it in the eMac. Just wanted to know your thoughts/ideas.

    Thank you:)

    I never even knew you could get 17" touchscreen CRT's... :rolleyes:

    As pistooli said, get a TFT, it'll be much, much easier.

    Thanks

    Thanks for all the replies this is great.:) Multiple people are telling me to go with TFT so I guess that's what I'll do. I just like the feel of CRT. Also never thought of having a company do it for me. Good idea just a little out of my budget for a 2005 computer. Thank you much. LONG LIVE PPC:apple: P.S any way I could buy an eMac internal video to vga or how would I make one.

    What good is a touch screen, when an eMac will not run an OS to support it?

    Leopard

    The eMac can run leopard (quite well) and there is a driver for leopard (all the way back to Jaguar) found it on elo's web site.:D
