Tech 10: Hot Displays For 2013

HP Envy 27

The understated design of the LG ET83 is something to admire, but so is HP's Envy 27—for the opposite reason. The touch-friendly monitor has a chinlike speaker bar that touts Beats Audio functionality. The display is a 1,080p IPS and looks to be as good as, if not better, than many similar monitors today. Hopefully that speaker bar counts for more than most monitor speakers. It is available now for $499.
