How Thin Can You Go?
Just like laptops and netbooks, HDTVs and LCD displays seem to be getting thinner and thinner every day. They way these technologies are dropping in size, you'd think they were contestants on "The Biggest Loser."
LG Display is the latest to hop on the bandwagon. The company will introduce what it calls "the world's thinnest display," a 2.6mm-thick LCD. The LG "Extreme Slim" display boasts a 42-inch screen with 120 Hz refresh rate and full 1080p resolution. The new LCD weighs under 4 KG or 8.8 lbs, so it's thin and light.
