This 65-inch LCD monitor from Taipei-based Collevo is believed to be one of the largest LCD touchscreens available. Sales manager Sylvia Tang demonstrates the display, which is sold to schools in the Far East. The company is now looking to expand sales of the screen into Europe, but could not provide priving information.

This display from Collevo is rated at IP65, which means it is protected against dust and moderately powerful water jets. According to sales manager Sylvia Tang it is destined for outdoor applications.

This Asus motherboard/graphics combination is meant mainly for serious — and seriously well-heeled — games players, but is also likely to find its way into industrial and high-performance computing applications in future, where eight small displays can be a cheap alternative to a single high-resolution display.
