    Fingerprint magnet... barf.

    Even if I end up going to Windows 8 I'll stick with KB/M and a clean monitor.

    So tempted to buy 2x of the S27B970 if they can beat Dell's 27" pricing. Touchscreens do sound nifty though.

    IMHO, this screams ergonomic issues.

    Imagine a person reading an online newspaper, while eating fried greasy pork sandwich and then touching the screen to move to the next page/article.. Samsung could integrated a self cleaning mechanism for the screen, maybe use a self-cleaning oven as an example?

    In the past the kitchen sponge was the most germ laden piece in a household.
    Soon to be replaced by your high tech monitor :-)

    And how close do you have to sit to a 27" monitor to use the 'touch' features ergonomically ?

    1080p on 27" and you have to sit close enough to it to touch it?

    There's some really stupid posts on here. Have you seen most users screens out there? They don't 'touch' the screen yet they're STILL covered in all manner of crap including excessive dust, ball point pen, scissor marks etc.

    Maybe one day negative posters will just stop.
