Hands On with Dell's 27-inch P2714T Touch MonitorWhen Microsoft launched Windows 8, the company gambled on consumers welcoming touch on the desktop, just as they had on mobile handheld devices, namely tablets and smartphones. It remains to be seen if that gamble will pay off, but in the meantime, peripheral makers and other hardware partners have stepped up with products built to take advantage of Windows 8's touch friendly interface. That includes Dell, which sent us its 27-inch P2714T Touch Monitor to test drive.

The P2714T brings support for 10 points of multi-touch input, so if you want to get up close and friendly with two hands, it won't wig out on you. Multi-touch support also means you and a friend can play touch-oriented games, and with 27 inches of elbow room, it's not only possible but feasible...

I prefer flat bezels, but this monitor looks fantastic. I do wish it had speakers though, especially for that price.

I think a lot of people are going to find the price to be a deal killer. As nice as the monitor is, you can find 27-inch PLS non-touch panels with a 2560x1440 resolution for as low as around $350 (off brands).

Ahh, but check the Amazon price link above. It's already down to as low as $527 on Amazon and I don't know about those "off brands,' never had much luck with quality there.
