    hello to all, greeting from Seattle, WA
    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

    Specs:
    20" intel iMac, 15" MBP, 3 X 13.3" MB (family etc), G4 tower, 12" G4 PowerBook, iBook G4, 20" iMacG5
    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.
