Has anyone got a favorite touch screen monitor they can recommend? I am
trying to put together a kiosk testing environment and am looking for
hardware. At first I thought of a Tablet PC, but they seem to all be
Pen-based (I havnt found any which are either dual pen- and touch- or just
touch-)

Any suggestions?

We use a resistive touch screen from Elo:

Aside from the new (and smaller form factor) UMPC's, all of the Tablet
PC's use an inductive technology to sense the pen and won't work with
fingers (this makes them much nicer for pen use than a traditional
resistive touch panel, which is not particularly accurate and
typically can't sense pen angle or pressure).
