Sick of waiting for an Apple tablet ? Tired of watching Windows 7 users show off their multitouch touch-screen programs? Well, Troll Touch is here to save the day, though you'd better be ready with a big wad of cash.

The Valencia, Calif.-based company sells resistive touch screens that can be installed on select Apple products and Dell monitors. These devices slip over the existing panels and connect to the machines via a USB port to impart some multitouch love. For those who prefer a complete package, Troll Touch also sells machines with a touch screen already installed.

The latest products from Troll Touch include touch-screen systems for the new 21.5- and 27-inch Apple iMac desktops and 13-inch Unibody MacBook laptops--all slated for delivery around December 1.

Retail pricing begins at $699 for the MacBook conversion up to $1,699 for the 27-inch internal iMac implementation that requires factory integration. You can purchase these products by contacting Troll Touch at its Web site. In the meantime, here are a few videos of touch-enabled iMacs in use.
