Hacker News – By Benq.com – July 31, 2018 12:38:18A $10K monitor costs more than $100K today.
That’s according to a new report by the tech news site Benq that estimates that a $120,000 PC can be fitted with a $30,000-plus monitor.
The $60K+ monitors will be on display at CES 2018 in Las Vegas on January 6th, and they’re going to be sold by manufacturers like HP, Acer, Dell, Asus, LG, Panasonic, and Asus Zenbook.
Benq’s report, which is based on a new survey, notes that there are currently 1.7 billion PCs in the world.
It expects that by 2020, that number will have increased to 5.1 billion.
Of course, the average $60 monitor costs $10.00 to $30.00.
So if you’re looking to buy a $100,000 or $120K monitor, you might want to look elsewhere.
The study notes that the average cost of a monitor is $3,000, so you might be able to save some money by opting for a $70 monitor instead.
The most expensive model in the Benq study is a Asus ZenBook Pro 12, which costs $6,902.
The Asus Z270E-AM3 Gaming Pro is $5,499.
Dell’s E201 G2460P is $4,599.
Asus is also offering a $1,000 model of the E2050 E2, which comes with a 27-inch IPS LCD display for $2,499 and a 1TB SSD for $1 and a 16GB RAM for $9,999.
BenQ’s report says that Dell has also announced plans to sell its latest line of high-end monitors for $3K+.
The other brands in the survey include HP, Asus Zenbooks, and Toshiba.
It adds that Asus, Dell and LG are also selling some of the most expensive monitors in the $50K-$100K range.
