Question: HP 23 tm touchscreen monitor

Hi, I want to get this new 5 point touchscreen monitor from HP. Hp 23tm.

I want to know if my osx mavericks will alow me to use touchscreen facility on the monitor?

I already have Windows 8 running on my mac, i have a dual boot. So I am thinking my windows will work on the moniter though its on my mac mini, but will the mac work with touchscreen?

Mac mini, Windows 7

Mac OS X itself has no built-in support for touch-screen monitors, therefore if you do want to use a touch-screen monitor capability in OS X you need to install a driver to support this.

I don't believe HP provide such drivers as standard themselves but you would need to check with them. As lllaasssuggested it is possible to get third-party drivers for various touch-screens typically you have to pay for the drivers.

Note: The driver might be listed under a name other than HP as many makers use touch-screen technology from another company and the driver would support all makes using the same underlying technology.

Yes, the touch-screen monitor should work in Windows 8 (or 8.1) running on the Mac mini via Boot Camp. The monitor is connected to the Mac mini by both a USB cable - which passes the touch-screen signals, and a DVI or other video connection. Windows 8 should then be able to talk to the monitor via the USB cable.
