Has anyone used touchscreen PCs like the HP touchsmart (
http://h20426.www2.hp.com/campaign/touchsmart/nz/en/mouseisdead/touchsmart.asp#/Main/),
and what has been your experience?
Most of what I've seen are home PCs with "lifestyle apps". But I am
wondering what the experience would be like for business applications built
for this medium. Would users feel comfortable using this for business? I am
also wondering about users with carpal tunnel syndrome or other physical
problems. Would this really be comfortable to use for long hours (with no
arm support)? Has anyone seen any research on these things?
