We here at enConnected feel for the average desktop user. You see, innovation passes them by. The desktop is a relic of a bygone era. An era in which computer buying consumers wanted no frills and large PC vendors were more than happy to oblige. While the world hasn’t yet come up with a cure for what we call desktopboringitis”, investing in the latest add-ons can help. Case in point, Dell’s new touchscreen monitor can make your mild mannered, and shall we say boring desktop PC into a formidable Windows 8 powerhouse.

We’ll have to get some in-office time with this one to believe the hype that Dell’s spewing but based on its specifications alone we’re ready to give this thing a try. A 21.5” monitor that easily changes angles to allow users to easily use its multi-touch capabilities to interact with Windows? A resolution of 1920 x 1080 resolution screen with a 3000:1 contrast ration? Have mercy!

The Dell S2240T Touch Monitor is available right now from Dell’s website for $399. Yeah, that’s pricey for a monitor of that screen size but it could be worth it for someone who’s trying to get rid of mice and physical keyboards around their office or house, like us.
