New Rumor: Apple's iMac Touchscreen?

Apple's  iMac Touchscreen
There's a new Apple rumor out there and it has nothing to do with the new tablet computer (thank goodness). According to the Commercial Times, Apple is jumping on the touchscreen bandwagon and will be producing a 22-inch touchscreen iMac to become part of the iMac family, which already includes 21.5-inch and 27-inch versions. A lot of information about the new device is not available but it would most likely be manufactured by Quanta and produced by Sintek Photronic.

Some tech experts are really questioning the rumor, due to the fact that Mac as just begun putting multi-touch support in the iMac through the Magic Mouse. If past behavior is any indication, making such a major change in such a short amount of time is highly unlikely. Also, with the iMac already having a 21.5 inch display option, why would they make the new touchscreen 22 inches, not much difference from the old one?

Several PCs companies, such as Hewlett-Packard have been making 22-inch touchscreens lately, as the new Windows 7 made touchscreens all the rage last year.
