Supplier Denies Touchscreen iMac Rumor



Computer component supplier SinTek Photronics wants no part of a rumor it is involved in building a touchscreen iMac. The denial follows a recent report the company was sampling capacitive touch panels for the supposed Apple device. The denial follows a report by a Taiwanese industry publication claiming the new desktop unit would offer touchscreens of 20 inches and more.

Earlier this month, the publication said SinTek had “a good chance” of supplying the new iMac.

The report of today’s denial did not refute an early claim by the same publication that a 22-inch iMac would appear this year with touchscreen ability. A patent design has appeared showing an iMac with an ergonomic design enabling the user to interact with vertically or horizontally.
