Lenovo L215p looks good in black (and silver)

In addition to its native 1080p compatibility, the Lenovo L215p includes a 2-megapixel USB Webcam, a USB hub that includes three downstream and one upstream port, 25 degree back tilt and 90 degree swiveling to the left and right.

Full HD, 16:9 monitors will soon be all the rage . And why not? For roughly the same amount of screen size, you get more screen real estate. Sort of.

For example, while the new Lenovo L215p we just got in has a 21.5-inch screen and the Gateway HD2201 has a 22-inch screen, the Lenovo is actually capable of displaying more pixels per square inch.

The Gateway has a native resolution of 1680x1050, and the Lenovo can natively achieve full 1080p resolution (1920x1080).

In addition to its native 1080p compatibility, the Lenovo L215p includes a 2-megapixel USB Webcam, a USB hub that includes three downstream and one upstream port, 25-degree back tilt, and 90-degree swiveling to the left and right.

I took a few pics just 'cause it's rather pleasing to the eye. Check out the slideshow here .
