    A touchscreen is a separate device on top of the lcd. This is the same for phones, tablets and (laptop) panels. So if the system does not natively support the digitizer (separate connector) then it won't support touch, even though the lcd in the combined lcd+digitizer would still function fine.

    Most configurations use a 'combined' cable; two connectors at the lcd and digitizer end, taped together to facilitate threading through the hinge and then either splitting off again at the mb connector side or using a single 2-in-1 connector. In either option the wires are all electronically separate from one another. Most likely, if the system supports touch, you'd probably still need a different cable since the non-touch cable would be cheaper to manufacture (fewer wires) and it's unlikely the builder didn't safe that extra penny.

    I emailed them last week and they only had one IPS wide gamut panel available (the one I mentioned) despite having multiple models listed as in stock.

    Their website even clearly states

    I actually managed to get a Samsung LTN156HL01 from dallexpress.com, they also usually ship compatible panels but their only wide gamut IPS panel happens to be the Samsung one.

    Installed it the day before and it's visually leagues above the Dell IPS.
