Troll Touch, the makers of fine touchscreen versions of Macs, have now announced prices for adding finger-friendliness to Apple’s latest range of iMacs.

The company achieves this feat by selling custom-designed pressure-sensitive resistive touchscreens in two flavours: an external model that attaches to the iMac and a factory-installed internal touchscreen. Being an Apple-certified Value Added Reseller allows Troll Touch to offer Apple’s standard one-year warranty on the modified Macs and it’s been doing this since 1987, so it must be pretty good at it by now.

If you own one of them fancy new widescreen 21.5-inch or 27-inch iMacs, you can have a touchscreen installed on it for $US1099 ($A1210) or $US1699 ($A1870) respectively. Alternatively, you can buy a new iMac directly through Troll Touch and have it outfitted with a touchscreen before it’s shipped to you [enquire with Troll Touch re shipping to Australia -- ed.] . Troll Touch offers four different iMac configuration choices if you want to go that way, but you don’t get to customise the model like you do on the Apple Online Store. Troll Touch also offers similar solutions for older iMacs, Cinema Displays, and MacBooks (including the most recently-launched models).
