How to Convert a Regular Laptop Into Touch Screen Laptop


Pen and Free's DUO
Many people like to have the latest gadget in their hands, the only thing that really stops them is the price that these gadgets come in. The majority are just too expensive for the regular Joe and it can be frustrating to see what others have. One good example is the touch screen computer. This is a high tech gadget which only used to be seen on sci-fi channels.
The cost of having a touch screen computer of a tablet can be quite expensive for many but it still is new enough to grab the attention of computer addicts who like to tinker with their laptops. Fortunately, there are products out there which can convert the regular laptop, desk top monitors, notebooks, Netbooks, and others into a touch screen. The downside is that most are over $140 and that can be quite a bit of money for the budget conscious.
The DUO by Pen and Free is Korea's solution to expensive laptop to touch screen converters. It only costs around $44.00 although Amazon sells it for $89.99. It comes in two versions: one can fit a laptop with a 15.4 inches screens, the other can fit monitors up to 22 inches in width. It is Windows Vista compatible and can be used for writing, drawing and playing.

Installation Steps:
Simple - just install the station on top of the screen, on its side or at the bottom, plug in the USB into the computer's port, download and install the software that comes with the package, synchronize the pen and that is it! No "Easy Steps" to follow, no need to be a member of MENSA, it is definitely a lot easier to handle. It is literally, a plug in and play gadget. All you need to do is to follow the menu for application definitions which you can customise.
There is a DUO aero pen touch which can make writing on air possible. Also, there is no need for a plastic screen protector that usually comes with the other brands marketed out there. The pens are designed not to damage or scratch the LCD screens. This is one of the main reasons why the DUO is cheaper than the others.
The great thing about this product is that you can use it to play games on your computer, no matter what kind it is. Either use the regular digital pen to touch the screen, or wave it around on air.
