In other ViewSonic news, the company is focusing on its roots a bit with the launch of a new widescreen display and all-in-one desktop, both of which sport 22-inch full HD touch screens.
Starting with the VX2258wm, the Windows 7-certified monitor is intended for almost anything from gaming to education with the following features:
- 1,920 x 1,080 resolution
- 100,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio
- Energy Star 5.0 and EPEAT Silver certifications
- ECO feature for up to 30% in average power consumption
- DVI and VGA inputs
- Integrated speakers with SRS Premium Sound
Furthermore, this ViewSonic display is versatile when it comes to placement as it can be mounted to the wall or placed on a desktop with tilting and swiveling functions.
Then you have the VPC220T all-in-one PC, also touted as ideal for places where space is limited. Powered by an Intel dual-core 3.06 GHz processor, buyers can expect the following:
- Full HD 1080p LED-backlit display
- Windows 7 Professional
- 4GB of memory
- NVIDIA GeForce graphics
- 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi
- Gigabit Ethernet
- Super-Multi DVD R/W drive
- 1.3-megapixel webcam
- Media card reader
- Stereo speakers
- Connectivity: Six USB 2.0 ports, HDMI
Both of these ViewSonic products are available now. The VX2258wm retails for $339 with a 3-year limited warranty, while the VPC220T desktop will cost $1,049 with a one-year limited warranty. However, there is the option to buy this all-in-one desktop without the touch screen, bringing the price down to $949.
