As a touch-sensitive monitor, the SC770 has little use for ergonomic options, beside tilt of course. Samsung

Windows 8's new multitouch interface means the building of new multitouch monitors will be necessary to take advantage of it. The Series 7 Touch SC770 will be the first such monitor from Samsung.

The monitor supports up to 10 points of simultaneous multitouch. The monitor also offers 60 degrees of back-tilt flexibility; most monitors top out at about 25 degrees of tilt. Why Samsung didn't just go the full 90 degrees is beyond me, however.

Other features include a 1,920x1,080-pixel resolution, an MVA panel, Mobile High Definition Link, and an HDMI connection. Look for more information (yes, including pictures) soon.
