A quick AltaVista search netted a company in Hong Kong that makes low
cost touchscreens for most 14" monitors.  The model I read about uses
the serial ports, has a "mouse emulation" mode, and even offers an
optional UNIX driver.  See

You may want to assist your friend in using a web search engine as

"+touch +screen".
