    A 27" iPad would be pretty awesome. How can I connect an external touchscreen to an iPad without sacrificing touch responsiveness?

    TIA

    Pretty darn sure you can't get an external touch screen to send touch data to the iPad and therefore it only working as a screen and nothing more.

    There is a way, but you need a Mac compatible with the touchscreen (maybe you can do it with a PC...).

    Or I suppose you could jailbreak it - that should open up some possibilities if you install the mouse support.

    You can extend the display, but you won't get touch response on the external monitor.
    Thing is - it's only a video feed and no input data transmission
