HP says touch screen is too expensive for the enterprise

Written by Nick Farrell



Expects Windows 7 will be the main operating system


High-precision touch screen technology is still too pricey  for deployment within the enterprise segment and Windows 7 will probably be the operating system of choice for a long time, according to the maker of expensive printer ink HP.

The outfit's HP Z1 All-in-One Workstation will not include touch-screen technology, which hints that the  Windows 7 Professional will be on the enterprise for the next 100 years. Jim Zafarana, vice president and general manager for the HP Workstations global business, told IT Pro that the technology is just not affordable yet.

He said that businesses need professional touch systems and the market is not quite ready to have the precision pen and multi-touch in an affordable package.  Zafarana sid that he was looking at the  technology into our long-term roadmap when it is cheap enough.

Business specific systems with touch-screen functionality are going to be significantly more expensive than the £1340 base price of the HP Z1. Zafarana did not rule out Z1 users upgrading to Windows 8.
