    I can't bring myself to criticize the guy you put in stitches.

    What you're talking about requires fairly sophisticated hardware. There isn't a conversion kit for you laptop. If you've a little computer engineering experience, you could probably pull this off, but it sounds very much like you are not a computer engineer or training to be one.

    If you want the functionality you've described you'll need to invest in a tablet PC.

    Blue Screen found an add on that clips over the screen. That may work for you. Good luck.

    Hi

    You're gonna need a screen that has touch screen capability, and then you are gonna need to buy the software for it. I highly, highly doubt you will find that for less than $100. You would probably be better off buying a tablet pc.

    I don't think they make TOUCH Screen. They make Tablet Laptops which let your use a pointer to do stuff on the screen. (I'm sure you could use your finger, but it wasn't made for your finger it was made for a pointer). They are nice because they are smaller, and usually you can flip the screen around so You can see just the screen.

    good luck, if your thinking of a download-able thing thats imposable unless it was made for touch sensory, and if your thinking of installing one its going to be over 100$ and its going to be difficult, i would just go get a touch screen laptop which are around 1000-1500$ i believe. i hope this help and didn't shatter your dreams lol

    i don't think that kind of hardware is available these days... if they did develop a technology that could do that, you would probably have to buy another laptop.

    i don't think that technology is available on a laptop unit. besides, that would be really pricey.
