Every major display manufacturer is working on some sort of flexible display, and we’re excited to see the technology come to fruition. The display you see here ist 0.2mm thin, which is totally impressive.

NEC looks to be trying to squeeze every last penny out of the non-16:9 monitor marketplace with the MultiSync EA109M. It has 1280 x 1024 resolution, five millisecond response time, 4-way ergonomic stand, 900:1 contrast ratio, and black bezel finish. We know, completely underwhelming. What’s worse, though, is they are pricing it at $259, ensuring that no one but out-of-date government agencies and schools will be purchasing them.

When Apple launched the unibody MacBook Pros, one of the loudest cries we heard from the Mac community was in relation to the loss of the matte display option. You see, while Apple touted colors that “pop” a bit more off of the glossy screen, those of us who like to be, you know, mobile with our notebook computers, cried foul. The problem with a glossy-only option (or lack of option, really) is that if you are using your MacBook Pro in the sun, you essentially have a screen that can double as a mirror.
Well, Apple has heard those cries, and has finally brought a matte screen option to the 15-inch MacBook Pro, something that the 17-inch unibody version has had since the get-go. It’ll cost you an extra $50 for the privilege, and you also lose the black “borderless” infinity bezel around the screen, and instead get a silver bezel like previous versions of the MacBook Pro.

Dell is no stranger to the display business, which may explain why they have launched three new models, seemingly without letting anyone know about them. The 22-inch E2210H and 20-inch E2010H are $199 and $139, respectfully. The E2210H has a full HD resolution, while the E2010H sports 1600 x 900 pixels. The other is the ST2310 (pictured) which is a widescreen with full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution, as well as DVI/VGA/HDMI inputs plus a 50,000:1 contrast ratio with a price point of $229.

I don’t know what it is about the Mimo 710-S, but I just have to like it. Maybe it’s because I could use a little portable flip-shut monitor for my laptop, even if it is 7-inches with 800x480 resolution. Maybe it is because it attaches to my laptop easily via USB. Actually, I think I like pretty much everything about the Mimo 710-S, except the price, which is $140.

Some of you probably work with two monitor screens, but what if you simply bought one monitor that was two monitors? I suppose this was the inspiration for EVGA’s InterView, which has two monitors that can swivel. (You can see from the photo that one is turned 180 degrees.)
Each one has a resolution of 1440x900, and are 17-inch at the diagonal. The stand itself has 4 USB ports, a built-in webcam, as well as an input for a microphone. There is also a DMS video connection.
Like it? So do I. Be prepared to pay a pretty penny’s worth of $649 for it, though.

You have to admire the looks of the redesigned MIU HDPC. With a 4.1-inch TFT screen (800 x 480) and a 2.4-inch AMOLED display (320 x 240,) we are talking major functional. Partially powered by Intel Atom, its screen can slide, flip and tilt. Use it for computer chores, as a cell phone, play music, or navigate with it. Rumor has it that the Korean gadget will be available for about $500.00. Contact MIU for more details and availability.
After many years of remaining stagnant, Apple finally gave their Cinema Display line a nice redesign. The new 24” LED Cinema Display looks similar to what you’d find in an iMac. Aluminum casing, black bezel along the front, LED backlit, built-in MagSafe connector, and a built-in iSight camera with microphone. That last one is something we’ve been waiting for, for far too long. Unfortunately, not everything is all fun and games with the new Cinema Display, as it appears that - at least for the time being - these new Cinema Displays are only compatible with the new MacBook, MacBook Pro, and MacBook Air that were announced today, which all incorporate the DisplayPort. There is currently no way to connect a Mac Pro, iMac, or older notebook to one of these. Let’s hope this gets remedied quickly.
You can pick up the new 24-inch LED Cinema Display in November for $899.

Check the video above for details on Samsung‘s new 2263DX dual monitor setup. The 2263DX features a large display much like the standard displays computer users interact with every day, but also includes a smaller secondary monitor which is mounted on an arm allowing it to be placed above the main monitor or too either of the sides. This secondary monitor allows for short bits of information to be viewed at a glance. Windows sideshow, email account summaries, web video conferencing and other information that is useful to have displayed at all times are ideal for this monitor as they do not take up valuable working real-estate from the main monitor. The main monitor features standard DVI, VGA, and HDMI connections, but to simplify connection the smaller monitor is connected via USB and contains a miniature USB video card.
Design nerds unite - the Dell Crystal monitor, which is available now, could change the way people think of monitors altogether. Combining great design and great functionality, the Crystal is a 22” solid tempered glass monitor with built in speakers with a maximum resolution of 1680x1050 (um, what?!) and a 2 millisecond response time.
The Crystal features five capacitive touch controls, four speakers, a 2 megapixel webcam and a microphone integrated so well that they’re virtually unnoticeable at first glance. It’s mounted on a metal tripod and features a single cable with the connections for power, USB, subwoofer out, and the DVI/HDMI with HDCP.
The CES Engineering & Design Award winning Dell Crystal is available now for $1199.
