Explore the New 17-Inch Powerbook with Touchscreen Features!

For those who are fans of enhancing their hardware, Troll Touch has introduced an innovative solution that allows you to transform your 17″ Titanium Powerbook (including the 12″ and 15″ versions, with 14″ iBooks soon to join the lineup) into a touchscreen device. This accessory, which overlays directly onto the Powerbook screen, connects through USB and requires the use of Troll Touch’s calibration software to get started.

The SlipCOVER touchscreen adapters for the 12″ iBooks are already on the market.

Further details about this product range can be found on the Troll Touch website.

The concept of adding touchscreen functionality to traditional laptops is quite appealing to me. However, the pricing details are not readily available on their website, which might indicate a premium cost.

Beyond touchscreens, I’m intrigued by the potential of converting a Powerbook screen into a scanner. Imagine simply pressing a document or photo against your screen to scan it.
