Hewlett Packard's targeting display hunters short on real estate with a couple of new HP Compaq branded monitors, the LA2206xc and LE2002x. The 21.5-inch LA2206xc is a thin form factor monitor with LED backlight and built-in 720p HD webcam that, along with HP's MyRoom software, is supposed to make videoconferencing a snap. Also an LED monitor, HP says the 20-inch LE2002x sports a small footprint with a slim profile.
Lenovo has come out with a new line of monitors dubbed the LS Series. With these new displays, Lenovo intends to give small-to-medium businesses (SMBs) features "crafted to their unique needs," such as bright images and touch-enabled navigational control. In the same breath, Lenovo also announced its new professional grade ThinkCentre Edge 71 desktop family available in tower and small form factors.
Display maker ViewSonic today announced its new V3D245 model display, a 24-inch 3D LED backlit monitor with Full HD (1080p) support. The new monitor includes a built-in Nvidia 3D Vision wireless emitter and 3D Vision glasses, and comes with an HDMI 1.4 input to connect directly to Blu-ray 3D players or PlayStation 3 consoles. It also boasts integrated 2W SRS Premium Sound audio speakers.
Between tablets, all-in-one (AIO) PCs, smartphones, and even desktop monitors, computer users are going to have to learn to keep their hands clean or risk gunking up all their gear with finger grease. The latest addition to the 'touch me!' crowd is AOC's aptly named Touch Monitor (e2239FwT), a 22-inch LCD display with LED backlight, Full HD 1920x1080 resolution, and multi-touch capabilities.
If there's one thing the emerging tablet market has taught us to do, it's to touch everything on the screen. From playing Angry Birds in the john to flipping pages on a Nook Color, it's almost instinctive to want to reach out and touch every display out there. Rather than break you of that habit, Acer encourages it by announcing a new 23-inch multi-touch display, the T231H designed for Windows 7.
NEC’s MultiSync EX family of ultra-slim displays now has a new 23-inch member. Actually, the EX231Wp is more like an identical twin of the EX231W. A twin that somehow evaded eviction from mother NEC’s womb for almost eight months after its brother came out. Just because they look alike does not mean that there are no differences.
ViewSonic appears ready to move all-in with LED backlights, announcing that "LED technology will feature in all of ViewSonic's mointors moving forward." Kicking off ViewSonic's commitment to LED displays, the company's European operations just launched a pair of new monitors aimed at two very different target audiences, including ViewSonic's flagship VX2753mh-LED, and VA2448-LED for school kids and business users.
Wearing a pair of 3D glasses is one thing, but would you be willing to keep yourself tethered to your PC? Nvidia is gambling that at least some of you will be fine with a wired set of specs, and so the graphics chip maker on Sunday announced a new addition to its 3D Vision product family, Nvidia 3D Vision wired glasses. Nvidia realizes that adding another wire to your desktop might be asking a lot, so these new glasses are priced at a buck shy of a C-note (MSRP).
One thing all-in-one PCs have over most desktops is that they simply look better. We've seen a lot of ugly tower systems, but relatively few AIOs that we'd qualify as eyesores. From what we can tell by viewing MSI's press photos, the company's new Wind Top AE2070 AIO doesn't buck the trend and is another classy edition to a growing number of AIO PCs. Touching it is optional.
Acer today announced its newest all-in-one 3D entertainment center built around Intel's Sandy Bridge platform, the Aspire Z5763. This latest AIO PC sports an integrated IR emitter and Nvidia 3D Vision technology to serve up 3D visuals on its 23-inch, Full HD 1080p 16:9 display. Audio duties are handled by an integrated 5W stereo speaker system and Dolby support. More specs after the break.
