    Just for playing around with it and to try to write some software, I'd like to buy an external multi-touch screen.

    I'd really like it to be a capacitive screen, which probably rules out those overlay sheets sold by some companies. I've been searching the internet but couldn't find anything.

    Does anyone have any information on the existence and/or availabilit of such devices?

    There seem to be some capacitive touch screens available, and some vaporware that might be released soon, but no, I don't think anyone's making multi-touch external displays. Yet. Probably because no desktop operating system has support for them. This sort of thing usually works its way from the computer makers to the peripheral companies. You'll probably see a lot more options when we get closer to Windows 7's release - though with Microsoft these days, who knows when that's gonna be, eh?

    We have one and I don't recommend it. Well it's a touch screen panel that you have to open the monitors display and place between (it's very thin) for our 19" monitor. They're a bit pants, to be honest.
