Dell CrystalIf you want a computer monitor, there’s a list the size of a football field to choose from.

If you want a computer monitor that looks good, the list is about as long as the kicker’s toe.

There’s Apple’s Cinema Displays and… not really much else. But there are good efforts being made in this area, like Dell’s 22-inch Crystal Display.

The Crystal is neat and geek at the same time, with its clear facade and exposed wiring. It has a 1680×1050 resolution, built-in camera, and speakers. Other specs like contrast ratio (2000:1) and response time (2ms) are all high-end.

And so, too is the price: $699 after $300 in instant savings. That makes it $200 cheaper than Apple’s 24-inch LED Cinema Display, which has a higher resolution (1920×1200) but lacks speakers. Of course the Apple display only works with new MacBook models, so while it would normally be our first choice, if you want something versatile and cheaper, the Crystal is the way to go.
