Dell computers are often thought of as expensive because of their hefty components, but the company says it has a solution to those issues: cheap monitors.
The company recently launched the D10, an ultraportable monitor with a 1,800 x 1,200 resolution.
It’s also the first of its kind to come with an integrated audio system, which the company said lets the monitor handle much more than just the speakers, microphones, and other peripheral features found in other monitors.
“Dell’s D10 is built to take full advantage of the most powerful computing technologies available, like Dolby Atmos, Dolby Surround and Dolby TrueHD,” the company wrote in a blog post.
“It features a 4K screen and a high-definition audio system that enables a rich cinematic experience.”
The D10 supports Dolby Pro Logic II, Dolco Atmos and Dolca SoundWorks, and it has built-in microphones that can capture a wide range of audio from the speakers and the DUAL-X port, which connects to the monitor’s display via HDMI.
The monitor comes in a variety of sizes, including 8.6 inches, 13.8 inches, 16.8, and 18.8 inch models.
It weighs in at a hefty 2.9 pounds, and the company has said that it is designed to fit in a bag, laptop case, backpack, or even a small purse.
“This new Dell D10 can easily fit into a bag or backpack,” Dell wrote.
“This monitor is engineered to deliver a beautiful, immersive entertainment experience.
You’ll have a much richer cinematic experience, thanks to Dolby’s Atmos technology, which lets you experience the sound as if it were right in front of you.
Dolby Cinema sound delivers crystal clear sound with crisp clarity and richness.”
The Dell D5, a smaller monitor, is similar to the D2D, but it has no integrated audio or Dolby Audio technology.
It costs $699.
Dell’s D5 has an integrated Dolby Sound 5.1 surround sound system and Dolco Surround sound with support for up to three speakers.
The D6 has an embedded Dolby audio system and supports up to two external speakers, Dolca Audio, and a DUALx port, with Dolca Surround Sound support.
It also has a built-ins microphone for better sound quality.
The Dell XPS 13 is a more expensive monitor with an HDMI-out port, but Dell said it was designed to work with just two external audio speakers, two DUAL audio ports, and two external microphones.
The monitors are available for purchase from Dell for $599.99, and are expected to ship in the first quarter of 2018.
