I know i can hook up three monitors to my laptop that part is simple and I'm really close to hooking up such a setup for my work computer, just because i can lol. The thought i had is three touch screen monitors. dose anyone know if that is possible or would it freak the laptop out lol.

Not sure what you mean by "freak the laptop out". As long as you have enough video memory to handle it and a way to physically connect three displays, there shouldn't be a problem.

As far as the video display is concerned i believe it will run it. it is the whole touch screen thing i have questions. I've not worked with touch screen before, except for tablets and phones, but it would seem like each screen would act as a mouse given three screens and a wired mouse would make four mice on one system. lol I've never tried to run that many mice before.

The screens are interpreted as input devices but not at mice. Windows interprets touch devices differently. 3 touch screen monitors should be fine. I've run a touch screen and a Wacom tablet at the same time with no adverse effects.

Exactly. The only issues I've ever heard of related to this are all driver-related, so just make sure your display drivers are up-to-date and you're good to go.
