Given the choice we always advise to uses a Windows Computer. The reason for this is that the Windows operating system has touchscreen drivers built into it for the operating of externally connected touchscreens. It is as simple and seamless process. You just connect the USB cable to your touchscreen from your Windows PC or Laptop and it works.

Unfortunately it is a different story with Apple based computers, including Macbooks, Macbook Air, MacbookPro and iMacs.
