AOC Aire Pro Monitor sheds the fat
It seems that Apple’s work with an aluminum unibody device has proved to be a masterstroke and an inspiration to many other companies, as you see HTC also employing a unibody design in their range of Android-powered smartphones. Well, aluminum is also liberally used in the AOC Aire Pro Monitor, coming in a sleek and brushed form factor, making it the perfect complement to modern homes and offices.
This is a 23″ metallic monitor that boasts one of the slimmest display panels in the world, measuring just 9.2mm thin while boasting an IPS (In-Plane Switching) panel. IPS panels are said to be superior compared to other kinds of technology, where it will deliver consistent image appearance and colors across the entire display, never mind if you are viewing from an extreme viewing angle.
Apart from that, the Aire Pro will also deliver Dual HDMI connectivity, allowing you to connect the Aire Pro straight from the monitor to the Blu-Ray Player or gaming console so that you can watch your favorite movies as well as enjoy video games on the single device without having to switch cables. Not only that, the monitor itself will include bonus features such as an embedded Screen+ software which enables you to divide the 23″ viewing area into a quartet of self-contained work areas so that you can be more productive, although I am not quite sure how your eyes will cope with that relatively small viewing area after it has been divided.
Other hardware specifications that might just interest you would be the 16:9 aspect ratio, a WLED backlight, a brightness level of 250cd/m2, a response time of 5ms, a couple of built-in speakers, eight OSD (On Screen Display) languages to cater to as many people as possible, and an e-Saver Feature that results in low power consumption. If you are interested in picking up the AOC Aire Pro Monitor, it will retail for $199 a pop.
