Displays don't get much thinner than the x2401 from Hewlett-Packard. It'll arrive in November for $249.

Hewlett-Packard is adding a new thin X series monitor -- this time a 24-incher.

The new HP x2401 24-inch-diagonal LED backlit monitor has an 11-millimeter profile encased in a glossy black-piano finish and brushed-metal case.

Sporting a resolution of 1920x1080, it taps MVA (multidomain vertical alignment) to deliver good viewing angles and 5,000:1 and 10,000,000:1 static and dynamic contrast ratios, respectively.

DisplayPort and HDMI ports are built in. And wall mounting is also possible.

The x2401 follows the ultrathin x2301 23-inch display announced last year.

Both a consumer and business version will be offered. The consumer HP x2401 starts at $249 and is expected to be available in the United States on Nov. 7. The commercial version, the L2401x, starts at $259 and is expected to be available worldwide on Nov. 5.
