Binary-inspired, thin monitors from Asus
Asus' new thin, sleek monitors: inspired by the binary state...
If Asus is to be believed, its new line of ultraslim monitors, called the Designo MS Series, was inspired by the binary state. Viewing the monitor from the sides leads credence to this, as it looks like a number "1" standing next to smaller "0." Actually, it looks more like an "o" than a zero, but I think I get the point.
The monitor's profile measures a purported short 0.64 inches, which is only slightly thicker than the. Asus' Ergo-Fit Technology allows a user to adjust the tilt of the monitor supposedly with just one finger. Hmmm, now I'm at least intrigued to see how this little feature actually works.
The screen is designed to sit at the user's eye level--unless, of course, the user has an extremely long or short torso--and by acting as a second screen, Asus says the monitors perfectly complement a laptop computer. I think Samsung would haveabout how "perfectly" they do so, though.
Asus will be offering the monitor in the following sizes: 20-inch, 21.5-inch, 22-inch, 23-inch, and 23.6-inch. The monitors range from 16:9 to 16:10 aspect ratios and from 1,680x1,050 to 1,900x1,080 resolutions. Take a look here for tons more details on connections options and other specs.
Unfortunately, there's no word just yet on when these waify monitors will be arriving Stateside.
