DIGITAL TRENDS - When it comes to displays, bigger is better.

With its large format and collaboration focus, the Dell 75 4K Interactive Touch Monitor may be a good alternative to Microsoft’s Surface Hub. In addition to supporting 20-point multi-touch InGlass touchscreen technology, like the Surface Hub, Dell’s display can also be used with a stylus for inking. Dell will ship two passive pens with its display, which the company claims will deliver zero lag. The monitor also supports Dell’s Screen Drop, which makes raising and lowering the display easier for all users.
In addition to the 4K UHD resolution, the panel also ships with anti-glare and anti-smudge coating, which helps reduce fingerprints and reflections on the screen. For its computing power, the monitor can also be paired with an optional Dell OptiPlex MicroPC. Adding the OptiPlex creates a modular all-in-one solution that will save space and allow users to upgrade the PC portion down the road, making the display more futureproof.
Dell’s display will cost $5,999 when it launches on April 30. For comparison, Microsoft’s first-generation Surface Hub starts at $8,999 for a 55-inch 1080p model...
