LG reveals new 21:9 all-in-one PC and monitors

LG has announced a new 21:9 all-in-one PC, and will show it off at this year’s IFA event in Berlin.

The LG V960 is an all-in-one PC with a difference – it comes with a 29-inch 21:9 aspect ratio display. Those are the same UltraWide dimensions as can be found at your local cinema, as well as the LG 29EA93 monitor we reviewed a few weeks ago.

Now LG has built this screen into a self-contained Windows 8 PC. The V960’s NVIDIA GeForce GT 640M should ensure that HD films and even some modern games run fluidly on that monstrous display – though it’s still no gaming PC.

Of course, that UltraWide aspect ratio is good for more than just films and TV. Picture-in-picture (PIP) enables you to watch a widescreen film whilst surfing the internet, for example.

In addition, LG has expanded its 21:9 monitor range. The 29MA73 features an integrated TV tuner, so it can double as a TV. Extra View, meanwhile, allows you to set a portion of the display aside to access a TV schedule or some other application.

The 29EB73, meanwhile, is clearly targeted at the business users, as it features an ergonomic stand that can be adjusted to the most comfortable height.

All three monitors (the other being the LG 29EA73 that we’ve already covered) allow for a 4-screen split and Dual Link-up for superior multitasking and are Mac compatible. Mobile High Definition Link, HDMI and DisplayPort connections are all supported, so you’ll be able to mirror content from a wide range of devices.

You’ll be able to see more of LG’s 21:9 offerings at IFA 2013 from September 6 to 11.

Now, read our round-up of the Best Windows 8 PCs 2013.
