First unveiled at last months CES, Dell's very tasty UltraSharp U2711 monitor is starting to show up on the market now.
The real eye-catcher in terms of specs for this model is its native resolution' 2560x1440. It uses an IPS panel and sports a 6ms response time, contrast ratio of 1000:1 (80,000:1 DCR), typical brightness level of 350 cd/m2, 110% color gamut and also houses a card reader and four USB 2.0 ports for convenience.
Connectivity is rich with support for D-Sub, dual DVI, HDMI 1.3, DisplayPort and composite.
Given the extent of its feature-set and specs, it's not that surprising to see its launch price at $1,099. It's now available in North America, South America and Asia, with word that it will enter the European market in the very near future.
BenQ has given its V series monitor lineup a big refreshment with the introduction of nine more models into the series.
The new models include the 18.5-inch V920/V920P, 21.5-inch V2220/V2220P/V2220H/V2220HP, 23-inch V2320 and 24-inch V2420/V2420H.
Standard across the new range are slim profiles (14mm for the 18.5-inch models and 18mm for the others), LED backlighting, dynamic contrast ratio of 10,000,000:1 (1000:1 static ratio), max brightness of 250 cd/m2 and also the use of Senseye Human Vision technology which dynamically adjusts contrast, brightness and backlighting to better suit the monitor's viewing environment.
Resolution wise, the 18-inch models run a native res of 1366x768 whilst all of the others are 1920x1080. Outputs across the range include both D-Sub and DVI, with the 'H' models also including HDMI.
All but the 23-inch model are set for release in Taiwanese stores later this month and into March. The 23-inch model will be released in June.

Tablet computers are going to be a big deal this year thanks to the iPad as other companies try and launch a similar device. We will also see a number of new notebooks and netbooks that support multi-touch screens this year.
Not all multi-touch screens are created equal though. Many of the screens only support input from two fingers accurately before things don't work well. A new screen being shown off by Cypress Semiconductor can accept input accurately from an unlimited number of fingers.
The screen the company is showing off is 14-inches in size, but the tech can scale from 7 to 17-inches for different product types. The screen is designed to work with Windows 7 and will find its way into netbooks, notebooks, PMPs and other devices.

Apple has been making all-in-one computers for a lot longer than most companies. It unveiled the iMac line years ago and they have been successful. The new line of iMac computers includes a 27-inch and a 21.5-inch version.
The 27-inch version of the iMac has been plagued with screen issues. The screens have been arriving at their destinations with cracks and many users report issues with screen flickering. Reports are surfacing from owners who have called AppleCare techs about the screen flicker issue that a new fix is coming.
The new fix is reportedly going to be offered in about three weeks. It will be the second fix to attempt to remedy the flicker issue. The three-week estimate on the fix goes along with the three week delay in shipping the 27-inch unit, but Apple claims the two are not related.
Pico projectors have been on the market for a while now and one of the universal issues is that they are not very bright. The lack of brightness means they work well in a dark room, but in a room with light, they are not very good.
HP is rumored to be working on a new line of notebooks and tablets set for launch this year that will sport built-in pico projectors. The projectors would reportedly be where the webcam is on the notebooks now.
I would think on the lid facing away from the user would be where the projector would need to go. I wonder if notebooks with these projectors would have a hump to hide all the gear, presumably they would. No other details are available.
