The Etta Touch Topaz, one of a series of Etta Touch LCD touch screens, has a sleek, picture-frame housing and comes in two sizes.

A line of touch screen displays have been custom crafted for brightness, durability, and versatility. The Etta Touch line of LCD monitors are designed, manufactured, integrated, and warranteed by The Linden Group Corp. (Boonton, NJ). All touch screen monitors have a standard response time of 16 milliseconds, and display brightness ranges from 300 to 1000 cd/m2.

Three different series within the Etta Touch line of touch screen monitors are available. The Etta Topaz series offers a sleek, picture-frame housing style and comes in 15- and 17-in. panels. The Ruby series of displays feature a base that pivots from 90o vertical to fully horizontal. Up to 1000-cd/m2 brightness is possible with the Etta Sapphire series, which includes a sturdy metal housing suitable for industrial applications.

The company also offers a lightweight desktop computer with a small footprint. The Etta Jade PC includes a 15-in. panel display, wireless keyboard and mouse, DVD-ROM/CD-RW combination drive, 40-Gb hard drive, and a 2.4-GHz processor. The computer also comes with built-in speakers, TV tuner, and FM radio.
