A lot of nerds (like this newswriter) don't care how their setup looks. Some people demand style, though, and that means that cheap plastic and ungainly wires going everywhere are unacceptable. Dell is clearly catering to the latter crowd with the new 27 Ultrathin monitor it's showing at CES. Engadget's Devindra Hardawar got an early look at the new monitor, which sports a 2560x1440 resolution on its 7mm-thick display.
Dell achieved that thinness by stuffing all the monitor's electronics into its base, in a similar fashion to the Surface Studio. The company claims that the new monitor is "HDR" in some capacity, although reportedly not the same "HDR" you'll find in other monitors or 4K TVs. The monitor's color gamut is apparently a point of pride for Dell, who told Engadget that it can display 99% of the sRGB color space.
Specifications aside, Devindra says the display looks "impressive from every angle." Dell quotes the viewing angles as 178-degrees, meaning the monitor likely uses an IPS panel. The 27 Ultrathin includes a USB Type-C connection, an HDMI 2.0 port, and an audio line out jack. It should be available on March 23 for $700.
