LG probably isn't the first name you think of when shopping for a new Windows PC, but at CES 2015 the Korean manufacturer is here showing off a new all-in-one with a curved, ultrawide display with a 21:9 aspect ratio.
So, the first thing to notice is the display. While it's not anything crazy like 4K or even QHD, it is big, and it is bright. It's a 29-inch IPS display with a 2560 x 1080 resolution. And with the curve it's really nice to look at. Pictures can't really show it, but with a display this wide even a curvature this subtle it makes a real difference in use.
Inside it's packing some pretty decent hardware. It's powered by the latest 5th generation Intel core i processors, with i3, i5 and i7 models available. Graphics wise it's housing NVIDIA GT840M and naturally it runs Windows 8.1.
Otherwise it's got the sort of ports you'd expect to find, including HDMI, USB and full size SD card slot, and comes with a nice chiclet keyboard and a slightly odd shaped, yet still quite comfortable mouse. It's not the first time LG has done an ultrawide all-in-one, but with the new chips from Intel in there and a curved display, it's a welcome upgrade. Pricing information wasn't available at the time of writing.
