Hi everyone,
I am planning on putting a setup together with a M-touch wing.
I already own 2 ELO 2201L touchscreens.
Got the Matrox TripleHead2Go Digital SE External Adapter recommended for using the 2 screens.(is this good?alternatives?)
What pc setup are you guys using or what do you recommend what works smooth? I don't wanna buy a laptop. what is good in the size of a Mac mini and affordable? happy about any input.
(maybe wanna update later on with an M2PC)

I would stay away from the Matrox expansion line, its quite outdated technology and very unreliable at times. We did use their drivers for a while in the M1 and finally had to take them out.
They are also very expensive.
Most systems nowadays can drive several screens easily, no need for this. If you need a simple extension use a displaylink compatible adapter, ideally UBS 3.0

For the M-Touch you don't need an i7, and 4/5th generation i3 dual core is sufficient. I would recommend a simple all in one touch pc, look at Dell, HP or Lenovo. Most have an additional monitor out, so you can have a main touch and a secondary display for more information. Such PCs shouldn't cost you more than 600/700 US. Make sure its a multi touch, and NOT optical. Has to be capacitive/ full glass. Most new PCs are.

If you find a model you are considering link it here and we can give you an opinion.
