The TouchSmart 600 series uses a ir sensor array matrix to sense anything about 1/8" above the glass. You can use a stylus if you choose. There is no specific type (capacitive or resistive) of stylus needed.

Erico, you mention that the TouchSmart 600 series uses a ir sensor array matrix to sense anything about 1/8" above the glass so you/we can use a stylus if we choose. There is no specific type (capacitive or resistive) of stylus needed.
I'm looking at the 500 series (Models: 520-1020 pc or 520-1050 pc), does the same apply?
My application is I want to be able to open a simple Paint type program (ex: Corel Paint) and with a pen/stylus, write or draw ON THE TOUCHSCREEN (not using my fingers or mouse).
Would that work outside of:
1) the included Touchscreen programs/enviroments that come with the PC and/or (?)
2) with these 500 series models - or would they work / work better with a 600 series?
Thanks in advance for any answer or quidance. Jeff
