It works well... but I find myself using the touch screen 70% of the time on routine functions and 30% of the time still using a mouse.
I got a used 17" NEC that was a lease return retired from a restaurant chain. Make sure you get a larger monitor if you want to use touch screen as your finger is bigger than a mouse.
I love mine !

I have a touch screen, and while my fingers are clammy and moist working with metal and coolant all is fine.
When I start doing dusty stuff it insulates my fingers, and without licking them, or touching something moist the touch screen only thinks it is one.
I actually installed an external cycle start button and almost never touch the screen. Just run the same cycle again.
I have a resistive touch screen. Screens like on iPads are capacitive and don't suffer this problem with dusty fingers.
Dusty work + touch screen means you need a capacitive sensor one.
Super X3. 3600rpm. Sheridan 6"x24" Lathe + more. Three ways to fix things: The right way, the other way, and maybe your way, which is possibly a faster wrong way.
