July 30, 2008 Dell's new 24-inch LCD monitor has an HDMI input and a native resolution of 1920 x 1080, making it a perfect fit for Blu-ray and video game consoles.

At US$379, it's a far cheaper way to enjoy high-definition movies and video games than an equally equipped HDTV - and a perfect addition to the AV/gaming enthusiasts bedroom, office or spare room for those occasions when a significant other won't give up the remote to the 50" pride and joy in the living room.
