Can anyone give me a rough idea of how much it would cost to install air conditioning in a townhouse that has existing ductwork? even a very rough estimate would be helpful - thanks

Hard to say without seeing the job. Material wise you need a condensing unit and a pad that it goes outside. Inside the plenum you need your evaporator coil. A line set is needed to connect the 2 coils. A condensate pump is needed to remove condensation. A drain line for the condensate has to be run. Electrical disconnect box and a 220VAC line on a 30A breaker have to be installed. Factor in where you live and your looking at a minimum of $2500.00. You can do some research. Ask your neighbors (The one's who have central air) How their units are. The repair frequency. Compare different makes. A good quality installation will benefit your unit for efficiency. You may need some more returns. Ask the installer for references. Good luck.
