    Don't get it. A friend of mine picked one up a while ago. The touch screen is very inaccurate and it isn't multi-touch. Also, when using as a second monitor, the touchscreen functions affect the primary monitor not the secondary. Plus no linux drivers, so you're stuck with Windows.

    I've got to ask, why the hell do you need multi-touch in a car? It's hard enough to reach down to the stereo console with single finger accuracy, let alone two or more. Plus, the only way to get multi-touch is to go capacitive, and that just adds expense to a screen that works just fine with a 5-wire resitive screen. Now, if that screen is inaccurate to begin with, I can't defend it. I didn't think they needed drivers for linux, and were just detected as input devices, like mice. Could be wrong, as I haven't used them with linux.
