Dell is definitely off to a good start ahead of CES 2017. Alongside a new convertible version of its XPS 13 laptop, Dell has also taken the wraps off of a new Ultrathin 27-inch monitor that is sure to impress. Apart from being nice to look at, Dell claims the new S2718D also packs the "world's overall thinnest profile" to boot.
Exact dimensions aren't yet available to back up that claim of overall thinnest profile, but Dell has revealed a bit more that should be equally impressive. The monitor looks to pack the same Infinity display tech that you see on its XPS 13 and 15 laptops, offering up barely-there bezels and an overall smaller appearance. The monitor also packs a QHD (2560 x 1440) resolution and support for HDR10, meaning you'll get to check out more vibrant and vivid colors from content that supports high dynamic range. As for connectivity, Dell is keeping up with the times by throwing in USB-C on a dedicated hub at the rear of the monitor.
Full specs (such as refresh rate and response time) aren't yet available, but the new Dell 27 Ultrathin display will go on sale starting March 23 for $700 in the U.S., Dell says. Worldwide availability will follow at some point after that.
