Technophiles with an eye for beautiful design now have a clear choice in widescreen flat panel monitors – the Dell Crystal. The award-winning 22-inch LCD display, crafted from four millimeter ultra-clear tempered glass, offers an ingenious fusion of art, technology, sleek form and sophisticated function. Priced at $1,199, Crystal is available at http://www.dell.com/crystal.
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 1680×1050 image resolution makes the display suitable for both personal entertainment and general-purpose computing.
