You Can Actually Afford Dell's Probably Awesome 27-Inch UltraSharp Monitor

Dell is dropping a nice new 27-inch monitor that isn't too spendy—the UltraSharp U2713HM. It's Dell's first to use AH-IPS, or advanced high-performance IPS, a technology that's supposed to improve on both color and clarity. Though it was only announced on the company's Japanese site, the screen looks like it will only cost around $637. A pretty fantastic deal!

The 2560x1440 res LCD has four USB 3.0 ports, as well as HDMI, dual-link DVI connector, DisplayPort, and VGA-out. No Thunderbolt like Apple's screen of the same size, but then again, it's $367 cheaper, and that's a tradeoff we'll happily take. [AV Watch via The Verge]
