i have one quick question:
is it possible to run an iMac with a touch-sensitive screen? does current Mac OS support such hardware matchup? Thanks in advance, folks

Well the quick answer is yes, but after the price involved, the logical answer is no. There is a company who is somehow affiliated with Elo who make Point of sale touch units who have retrofitted G3 and G4 imacs. Not sure about the G5/intel though.

I have seen and personally used the G3 and G4 touch at the elo warehouse.
Wasn't particularly responsive, I think they were early models.

A guy I work with has a touchscreen iMac G4, so it's definitely possible.

We found it in storage in an old Toys-R-Us, they used to use them for customer kiosks.
