Apple might launch touchscreen iMac…

The possibility of an ‘iSlate’ today became a step closer with the rumour surfacing of Apple launching a touchscreen version of its popular iMac desktop range.

Touchy? No Touchy? Will the touchscreen iMac work?

It makes sense for Apple to begin introducing some touchscreen models to their computers. If they are indeed to launch a tablet, then the computer manufacturer needs to show a certain amount of confidence in touchscreen technology other than small portables like the iPhone, such as being able to put one of their flagship computer lines into the world of touch.

It appears that the touchscreen is here to stay, regardless, it seems to be the future with more and more companies producing touch enabled computers, phones, and media devices. However, Apple is making what was otherwise an unnoticed market suddenly the centre of attention, even stealing the show from Microsoft, who last week debuted a new line of ‘slate’ PC’s.

A question that quickly pops to mind is how long a user can sit at an iMac and comfortably use the touchscreen without getting a strain, and whether or not anyone would bother using the feature with a mouse and keyboard closer at hand.

With all the talk about Apple products so close to their next event, it seems like a good idea to take some of these rumours onboard, and hope we’re not disappointed.
