    I was wondering what those monitors are called that are touch sensitive with those pens. Concept Artists use them...you just touch the screen with the pen and the pen acts a mouse for drawing and stuff. What are those called?

    Well, there's the Cintiq, by Wacom.

    This is the only one I'm aware of. If you want to buy me one, that would be great.

    To answer your question, it's a tablet. As for where to get them... no idea

    To be precise, he asked about touch sensitive monitors. A tablet doesn't quite qualify. Not trying to be pissy or anything here, just posting for clarification.

    As for where to get a Cintiq, you can buy one directly from Wacom at the link I listed above.

    Get ready to spend some major coin.

    I've just heard them called Touch Screen Monitors. Where you said touch sensitive they are Touch Screen Monitors. Not sure if there is a fancy name like LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) or CRT (Cathode Ray Tube). Just TSM (Touch Screen Monitor)
