CES 2014: Lenovo talks up $799 4K monitor that works with existing computers

When TechRepublic interviewed Lenovo executive Tom Butler at CES 2014, we got the details of Lenovo's 28-inch 4K monitor that costs $799 and doesn't require a special PC to run it.


At CES 2014, TechRepublic and ZDNet interviewed Lenovo's Tom Butler, Director of Portfolio Strategy for the Americas, and one of our favorite topics was Lenovo's newly-announced 4K computer monitor. We had Tom surrounded with Bill Detwiler, Ryan Huang from ZDNet Asia, and yours truly, but he was a great sport. 

Watch this three-minute video clip where Butler talks about not one but two 28-inch 4K displays that Lenovo announced at CES. The first one is a $799 monitor aimed at professionals. The second is a prosumer display that is not just a 28-inch monitor but also includes three HDMI ports for adding other devices and includes Android so that you can use it as a large touchscreen or even an all-in-one Android PC if you connect a keyboard and mouse via Bluetooth. It carries an $1199 price tag.  Both sport a screen resolution of 3840x2160 and will be available during the first half of 2014.

Also, Dell announced a 4K monitor at CES that comes in at $699 and will be available on January 23.
