Very few computer monitors are worth getting excited about, but the new Dell Crystal should join that exalted club. It’s a 22-inch widescreen display blending ultra-clear tempered glass with a polished metal tripod.
Okay, that slinky design comes at a price: $1,199 in the US, to be specific – UK pricing hasn’t been announced. Speakers, a two-megapixel webcam and a microphone are all built in, it offers 1680×1050 resolution, and touch controls.
Meanwhile, multimediaheads will appreciate the DVI / HDMI outputs. The Crystal is being shown off at CES next week, and finally gives PC users some spiffing design to crow about, after years of watching Apple fanboys dribble over widescreen displays.
