LG added a new product to its lineup of All-in-one PCs today. The unconventional looking device features an IPS 21:9 UltraWide display and is powered by an Nvidia GeForce GT 640M graphics chip. According to the press release, it will ship with Microsoft's Windows 8 operating system and come with a built-in TV tuner. Furthermore, the display offers 2560x1080 pixel resolution, and is accompanied by a matching keyboard and mouse. True to its name, this cinematically dimensioned PC truly is the whole package.
Interestingly, this isn’t LG's first foray into the still nascent category of ultra-wide consumer displays, releasing its very first 21:9 computer monitor at IFA 2012 just a year ago -- which we reviewed back in April. This time around, LG has continued to feed this emerging industry by adding three more monitors to its lineup of disproportionate displays: the 29EA73, 29EB73 and 29MA73.
So why would anyone want so much extra real estate? The main reason would be to facilitate multitasking. The IPS 21:9 UltraWide All-In-One PC will offer a unique 4-screen split, as well as a cool picture-in-picture (PIP) feature to appease those who want to watch TV while simultaneously browsing the web.
Although the public has been provided with general specifications, further product details will be released at the IFA 2013 global innovations show being held from September 6th to 11th in Berlin. Information regarding worldwide availability as well the expected retail price should be released at this time.
