Super thin ASUS 'Designo' LCD monitors are coming


If you’ve been waiting and waiting and waiting for an LCD monitor that’s only 0.65 inches thin, your wait may soon be over. Otherwise, a standard monitor ought to do just fine. But if thin’s your thing, ASUS has just announced its line of “Designo” monitors that’ll be available in 20-, 22-, 23-, and 24-inch sizes.

In true ASUS form, there’s no pricing or availability information yet but you’ll be able to buy one of five monitors: 20-inch at 1600×900, 22-inch at 1680×1050, 21.5-inch at 1920×1080, 23-inch at 1920×1080, and 23.6-inch at 1920×1080.


After your hipster friends are done oohing and aahing, you can tell them that “The design concept behind the Designo MS Series is inspired by the binary state, incorporating a series of contrasting elements like the numbers 1 and 0, straight lines and circles, and black and white into an ultra-slim monitor with a 16.5mm profile.”

Very fancy, indeed. The ring stand allows for one-finger tilt adjustment, too.
