Given its propensity to wobble (a lot) when pushed, placing the Dell UltraSharp U2412M on the edge of a 40-foot drop is not recommended. Makes for a nice photo, though.

Vertical screens are nice and all, but as you can see here, they're also responsible for rainy days. Pivot at your own risk.

While not incredibly slim, that's a fairly slim profile for an IPS performance monitor. Also, it's still raining out there. What have I started?

A 45-degree left and right swivel isn't enough to stop the downpour. You see, 'cause it's raining outside! Eh? OK, I've gone as far as I can with this "joke."

VESA support is accomplished by separating the saucer section from the engine. It's usually best to just keep them connected, though.

The OSD's four buttons are well-spaced, driven by the contextual navigation menu (contextual navigation menu not pictured).

DisplayPort, DVI, VGA, USB upstream, and USB downstream x2. Sadly, no HDMI. No composite or component, either, but who cares about those? Seriously, though, the lack of HDMI speaks to a larger trend I've noticed with recent monitors. Could DisplayPort finally be in a position to take over as the primary computer video input?
