It's a relatively small monitor considering the current market of choices, but should be great for casual use. The high-­definition LED monitor has a 1600x900 native resolution, along with dual speakers, VGA port, and two HDMI ports. Although it can be mounted to the wall, the FT200HQL provides 10­90 degrees tilt, so it can be used as a true touch surface.

 

"The Acer FT200HQL is a great choice for consumers or small businesses wanting an affordable and compact touch display for making the most of Windows 8 touch capability," noted Frank Chang, Acer America Director of Product Management, in a statement. Acer's FT200HQL is available now with a $199 MSRP.

 

It is expected that touchscreen monitors will become more popular in 2014, as a growing consumer base becomes familiar with using touch technology. Microsoft Windows 8 and 8.1 aren't as popular when compared to Windows XP or Windows 7, but touch features truly can be a fun and useful play thing.
