Is there a device out there that i could plug directly into my pc through USB that would just allow me to set some sort of "tablet" like monitor on my desktop and allow me to touch links, start button , etc without using my monitor?  Possibly even bring up the onscreen keyboard instead of using my actual keyboard.  I would only use it for normal everyday use.  I'm not trying to find some sort of POS device.  Just simply something that i could use as a keyboard, mouse, and monitor in one..when i don't feel like staring @ the screen...and clicking the mouse....? Everything i have found has either been for POS stuff or it fits over existing monitor.  Any info would be greatly appreciated!

The difficulty is that there are no receptors built into regular monitors, to accept input.

The ones that fit over exisiting monitors provide that means of input.

Either that, or you need to purchase a touch screen monitor(http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/category/category_slc.asp?CatId=1449), and use a virtual keyboard like this one:

Hope this helps!
