If you’re going to wholeheartedly commit to Windows 8′s touch-friendly interface, then Samsung’s 27-inch all-in-one might be a good place to start. The biggest – pun intended, I suppose – news is the computer’s 2560×1440-resolution 10-point multitouch display, but the machine also “responds to both voice input and hand gestures — both uncommon features for a desktop, especially in that combination,” says Engadget.
The Verge says, “The display sports a very thin bezel that promises to offer optimal space for Windows 8 gestures. Pulling in the charms and swiping through apps also proved fast and responsive…” We may see this – or something like it – later this year when Windows 8 ships, but the version on display at Computex was “still in the prototype phase,” says SlashGear.
No word on price, either, but a 27-inch quad-HD multi-touch screen can’t be cheap. Apple’s 27-inch quad-HD iMac starts at $1,700, for instance, and that’s without a touchscreen.
