The brand new Lenovo ThinkVision X1 monitor takes the bezels away

If you're not a fan of bezels on your PC monitor, Lenovo's new ThinkVision X1 is about as close as you're going to get to getting rid of them entirely. Announced at CES 2016, it's part of a much larger X1 family of high-end PC products and there's plenty to like about it.

It's reported to be the world's slimmest 4K monitor meaning you not only get a glorious 3840 x 2160 resolution IPS display, but you get it in a ridiculously slim body. And of course, it's borderless on the sides and top.

The ThinkVision X1 also has USB-C connectivity meaning you can hook up a compatible smartphone for charging and data transfer. You also get 4 x USB 3.0 ports, DisplayPort 1.2 and HDMI 2.0. And it packs in a couple of speakers slung underneath, too, with a pair of 3W units accompanying an array microphone to cover output and input.

Up on the top right corner there's also a pretty unique webcam setup. It's a regular webcam, no RealSense here, but as it's on an arm external to the monitor it can be manipulated into a whole variety of positions to make video that bit easier to deal with. It's a 1080p camera complete with privacy cover and LED lighting and isn't something you're going to find on just any high-end monitor.

The ThinkVision X1 will be available from March for a price of $799.
