Factory-installed or user-installed options
Troll Touch -- a firm specializing in custom touchscreens for Apple products for over 20 years -- have now added two new product options for the Apple 27-inch Cinema Display, both incorporating an analog-resistive overlap and high-resolution USB controller. Buyers can choose either an internally integrated touchscreen that replaces the sheet glass, or a user-installed removable "SlipCover" style that can be installed or removed in minutes. Both are Mac and Windows compatible.
Customers can order both the display and the internally-integrated touchscreen pre-built and delivered for $2500, or supply their own 27-inch Cinema Display and Troll Touch will do the installation for $1500. The 27-inch user-installable SlipCover touchscreen is sold for $1100. The large touchscreen surfaces are ideal for artists, those with certain kinds of disabilities, and kiosk conversions among other uses.
The company also offers touchscreens for other Apple and Dell screens, and can also do touchscreen modifications for MacBooks.
All the conversions feature 12-bit resolution and contrast-enhanced, scratch-resistant custom designs. They are warrantied for one year, with an extended three-year warranty available. Neither product violates Apple's hardware warranties.
