Curved monitors are all rage at the moment (just like 3D ones were in their heydey), and LG is jumping on the bandwagon with the first 21:9 all-in-one PC with a curved display.

The 29V950 has a 29-inch display boasting a 2560 x 1080 pixel resolution and a 1000:1 contrast ratio.

At its heart is an Intel Pentium dual-core 3805U, a just-released fifth-generation 14-nm Broadwell part clocked at 1.9GHz with 2MB cache and a TDP of only 15W.

Other notable features include 4GB of RAM (DDR3L type), a 1TB hard disk drive, 802.11ac, two 7W speakers, Bluetooth 4.0 LE, a Gigabit Ethernet port, a card reader, two USB 3.0 and two USB 2.0 ports plus HDMI in/out.

Power play

Some of those parts are meant to be used in laptops which means that the 29V950 should have a fairly low power usage.

The device also has a tuner which means that it can turn into a TV when required. LG has also included a nifty feature called Homedrive which allows content stored on the computer to be accessed from a mobile device from any location.

Availability of the 29V950 is yet to be confirmed as is pricing.
