The touchscreens I've done recently have to on 50" screens, mostly in a 
vertical orientation. It's ironic that gestures and touch/swipe was brought to 
us by Apple and all the screens have PC drivers only. :) Go figure.

The hardware is dependent on what your program will be doing. I've had some 
that ran on anything desktop and a couple that a separate running animated 
video background for each of seven sections, plus 20 selectable videos and a 
125meg attract video, along with all the content and graphics for the seven 
sections and we brought just about every PC to its knees. Ended up with a very 
high box, with a beefy graphics card. 

So really your hardware selection gets driven by what your going to build, 
system resource requirements, usage (kids :), a length service (time wise). 

If you want specific hardware spec's, I could ask a couple of my clients what 
they settled on.
