Crystal clear - Dell have announced the launch of their Crystal Widescreen Flat Panel Monitor
Technophiles with an eye for beautiful design now have a clear choice in widescreen flat panel monitors - the Dell Crystal. The award-winning 22in LCD display, crafted from 4mm ultra-clear tempered glass, offers an ingenious fusion of art, technology, sleek form and sophisticated function.
The Dell Crystal adds style to any space with fine, sculptured details like a polished metal tripod that supports the floating screen. Audio speakers with subtly wired circuitry are cleverly integrated into the Dell Crystal’s svelte frame, and the inconspicuous webcam and microphone sit flush above the display. Capacitive touch controls with intricate but discreet wiring provide visual simplicity and functionality, and single-cable connectivity finishes out its clean presence. The 1680 x 1050px image resolution makes the display suitable for both personal entertainment and general-purpose computing.
“The Dell Crystal is a direct result of listening to customers and applying that inspiration to create strikingly original products that are beautifully functional,” said Steve Gluskoter, director, displays product marketing. “For consumers who value technology with iconic design, Crystal offers an eloquent expression of their high-def lifestyle.”
