Dell aims for the middle with its new Inspirons and one ultra-wide monitor

Hayden Dingman | Jan. 7, 2015
These aren't the thinnest or widest or whatever, but they are the solid, mainstream systems that most normal people buy, and they've all been upgraded this year.

Real monitors have curves

Last but not least, Dell's slapping a price and release date on its UltraSharp 34 Monitor--January 8, for $1,200. The UltraSharp 34 features a 21:9 panoramic IPS display. It's 34 inches of 3440x1440 resolution, aimed squarely at gaming. That sort of pixel density (109ppi) won't blow your mind, but it's a really wide screen and it's curved so...I guess that justifies the price?

I don't know. I think there are better deals on monitors if you're willing to cough up over a grand, but maybe one day this sort of tech will come down in price and become a viable option for us normals.
