This seems awful pricey. $1499 for a  19" Touch Screen monitor. Here's a 22 inch Dell monitor.  It's $849.00, and it also has a capacitive display.

 

Unless I"m missing something, the only benefit to the HP Monitor is USB / RS-232 support for non-Windows 7 applications.

 

Is there something I've missed?

 

EDIT: The $849.00 was a promotion price. The price on the link is actually $1149.00, still cheaper for a bigger monitor.
