Rumor: Apple Testing Out Touchscreen Macs

The past couple years, Apple has really seemed to embrace the themes of touchscreen technology.  Rumors out of DigiTimes say that the company is now testing a new touchscreen all-in-one iMac desktop computer. 

The report says that the new hardware would maintain a size of 20 inches on up.
“The new iMac is rumored to have a good vertical and horizontal viewing angle, and its projected capacitive touch panel will adopt a one-glass solution, which integrates the touch sensor and cover glass, to reduce thickness and weight,” said the report.

It also noted that most touch panels are constructed by placing a sensor over the panel, and are then covered with glass.  But that method becomes costly, complex, and can result in a dimmer screen.

The report also noted that Sintek Photronics “has a good chance” of becoming a supplier for the new iMacs.  No estimated release date had been given yet.
