Lenovo 1080p, 22" monitor
Lenovo, not normally known for its monitors, has announced the ThinkVision L220x, a high-end LCD model. The 220x is a 22-inch display with a 16:10 widescreen ratio, but most crucially, it supports resolutions up to WUXGA (1920x1200) -- allowing it to handle 1080p, a rarity in the monitor's size class. Most 22-inch models can only scale up to 1680x1050.
Suitably, the 220x has both VGA and DVI inputs, the latter allowing protected HD content through HDCP. The monitor also has one USB input and four USB outputs, allowing a variety of connection schemes. Lenovo plans to sell the screen for $550 when it ships this November. [via CrunchGear]
