    Every other stall at BETT seemed to be running new touch-screen RM One workstations. I also had a look at the Viglen stand - they had a similar product, but the touch-screen part was simply a standard touch screen monitor. It looked like very well thought-out design, basically a nice all-in-one PC case with a standard VESA mount point for whatever monitor you like - you can even buy just the stand without the monitor, I understood. I think both designs allowed you to lock away any cables from prying fingers yet used big enough cases that there was room to fit (half-height) expansion cards if needed.

    HP Touchsmart series? Price seems to have spiked a bit, but they look decent.

    The Lenovos are nice but not touchscreen I don't think

    Anyone heard of \ used Ergo?

    Had a quick play with the demo models they had at Bett and was reasonably impressed (Welcome - Ergo Computing - Full-scale ICT solutions provider)

    We have some of their laptops, admittedly from about 5 years ago. They're not great.

    Viglen had a new version of the Omnimo, which can take any sensibly sized Vesa monitor.

    It depends on what kind of machine you want - an more traditional, upgradeable desktop PC style machine, or an integrated laptop sort of device. If the latter, at home I use an Advent 22" touchscreen Windows 7 PC - I don't know if PC World Business sell them in bulk, but there's always the similar HP TouchSmarts (again, several of those used as demo machines at BETT). You could always go for a tablet PC and some kind of wall-mounting or stand (I use industrial strength velcro).

    I think the ergo all in ones and the touchscreen versions are better than most.

    The Stone AIO's look awful, Ergo seem to have true AIO's and from BETT they looked the biz.

    We have 2 Viglen machines on trial - both are all in ones, and both could potentially have touch screens on them and at the prices we've been quoted (for 100ish) they would come in under your budget.
