Touch panel for 17" LCD

Hey guys, I have an old 17" Laptop with an awesome screen and good speakers, but it's WAY too slow for any of the production work I do, and a little too damaged to be worth anything.

So I was thinking about turning it into a stationary tablet computer for the kitchen. The type on a stand with nothing but a touchscreen.

Problem is, I can't find any 17" touch overlays :( It's wide screen, 36,9x23,2mm

Does anyone know where I can find one? Would be cool if it's a complete kit with USB output.
It can be an external overlay or just the components, and it doesn't have to match 100%, a few mm off doesn't matter.

Whoa! last time I looked at ebay I found only 1 reseller and he didn't ship to Denmark...

This is perfect! Within budget and everything! Thanks! :D

Actually I've been crawling around for quite some time :(
Those are also some of the first I found, but they are not 16:10

How hard have you looked?
I found this in less than 60 sec - is this the sort of thing you want?
