    Panasonic definitely installs newer touchscreen panels since MK5. Much softer to press, no need to use nails or stylus. But they are compatible AFAIR.

    I think I am a little bit confuse with this concept. panasonic Cf 19 Touchscreen does not have digitizer unit? because they both use stylus pen. now, I know digitizer use stylus and touchscreen does not need it. so, how can I get this idea clear.

    MK4 unit is compatible with mk5, but is darker anyways...even if I remove the protector.

    Yes Panasonic does have a digitizer screen. You can not use a stylus pen from a touchscreen. It will not work at all and also your finger will not work. As Shawn said above you need a special pen with a button on it. Also the hole that holds the pen is smaller on the touchscreen. I will see if I can find you one

    Here is a digitizer pen

    https://m.ebay.com/itm/OEM-Panasoni...412393?hash=item284f9d7a69:g:nHoAAOSwPGpac15b
    And a touchscreen pen

    https://m.ebay.com/itm/Stylus-Pen-C...180269&hash=item362c2cd4ad:g:iugAAOSwJIlaiN5r

    If you look at this 19 you will notice how big the hole is for the stylus. This is for the digitizer pen. The touchscreen hole is a lot smaller

    Many member and eBay sellers get confused between the two. A few years ago I bought a 19 MK3 that was list as not working Touchscreens for $50.00 shipped. When I got it I realized it wasn't a touch but a digitizer. It was a fully working A1 shape with only 1200 hours with GPS. I still have this now.

    It was MK2 or lower ;)
    MK3's and up are either touchscreen or dual touch, but not Wacom digitizer only.

    I have some stylus pen like those, but I think the longer one is used for cf-30-31-52-53 series as well, the small one with button is for dual touch, and with no button is with for single touch. am I right?

    when we set in BIOS the option for touchscreen mode, it means we do not need stylus? or why is this option available?

    Yes dual touchscreen and digitizer screen just like my 19-MK5

    Yes it is used for all Toughbook touchscreens. Will not work with any digitizer panels.
