Lenovo IdeaCentre  A720 use as a Touch Monitor 4 a Mac Laptop  - ???

 

Hi 
 
I am wanting to purchase an A720 but have two queries I was hoping could be answered before I do.
 
1) Appreciate the Lenovo is an all in one PC but can it be used as a touch monitor for another pc.  I.e a working touch monitor for a windows 8 laptop. Connected through the hdmi socket - ? 
 
2) second can someone please confirm the touch screen used in the device I.e USB vendor and product ID per the below guidelines

Ideally wanting to connect the Lenovo to a mac mini / mac book pro buy some Mac Os X touchscreen drivers and use as a windows and a mac touchscreen.
 
Cheers. 
John

You shouldn't buy the A720 now...

 

For two main reasons... A720 doesn't work as it shoud with windows 8. Secondly, Lenovo just anounced A730, with better screen resolution, windows 8 installed. You really should wait for the A730, which will start to ship at June...
