Dell's new monitors are small (ish) and cheap

Dell announces new monitors for its P and E budget lines.

I suspect the person on this screen is a model and not an actual telemarketer. That's just my guess. Dell

I'll be honest. It's difficult to get excited about monitors without IPS screens, super-high resolutions, and multiple HD video inputs. Still, people do buy budget monitors. Lots of them. Why? Because they're cheap, simple, and usually get the job done. That job being delivering images to your optics.

Today Dell announced new entries into its P and E lines of displays. These fall under Dell's budgets lines, so I was surprised by the inclusion of DisplayPort in the P series.

Anyway, these go on sale today, so check them out at if you're interested.
