    Just fitted it all up and therefore wanted to show off my new touchscreen PC.

    Its a Dell Inspiron 2330 i7 Windows 8 machine....with 8GB memory and bluray.

    Wall mounted in our kitchen so it can be used for all cooking and recipe based things, as well as central home email, calendars and contacts. Controller for Sonos too and all news based apps from Metro as well.

    Loving Windows 8 touchscreen control, and although I had no issues with Windows 8 on my normal Dell desktop PC (I'd turned off the Metro Screen and put the start menu back) i have to say the touchscreen really makes windows 8 pop. I have absolutely no complaints and the only thig that could make the experience better is if software makers make MORE full blown apps with live tiles.

    Managed to get it mounted nice and close to the wall with only a power cable requiredas its pretty close to the main router AND the wifi is pretty strong as it is....worst case I can run an ethernet cable through the wall with the power cable as that is where my main patch panel and swtich are....

    Loving the system and with the spec it should basically be good for a long time to come.

    Ive added some pics as well
