You better try out that touch screen before you buy it. My Sony camcorder has the same feature, and I absolutely loathe it.

Might want to talk to Tommy Boy. He just bought a new camcorder.

Yes I certainly did

You looking for high def, well check this one out...

Canon Vixia HF100

It's 100 bucks more than the one you are looking at but it's a great camera. I just bought the FS100, the standard definition version. The SDHC flash memory is great, just remove it and put it in the card reader in my laptop and transfer the files. I'm not sure if it has the same file compression as the FS100 but if it does it can be confusing if you don't use the bundled software (it's crap). If you buy it give me a yell and I'll point you in the right direction.

Like I said, not necessarily cheaper, but it's better. There are different models too, some with built in flash memory and some with longer zoom, but also cost more money.

yea man you don't want that. believe me.

Canon HF100 is where it's at, as far as little SD card-based consumer camcorders go. They even used like 30 of them to shoot the new crank movie, along with a few canon XH-A1's.
