“HP today launched its 27-inch ENVY display with 4K Ultra HD resolution and a built-in USB-C port for charging the new MacBook Pro, 12-inch MacBook, or most other USB-C devices at up to 60 watts over a single cable,” Joe Rossignol reports for MacRumors.

“The IPS LED-backlit display features a clean design with a micro-edge bezel, matte black rear panel, and a thin aluminum stand,” Rossignol reports. “The base can be detached for VESA wall or arm mounting, but a bracket is not included.”

“HP’s new ENVY 27 Display is available on HP.com and at select retailers in the United States for $499 starting today,” Rossignol reports. “One display that may be a better buy in the near term is a href=”http://amzn.to/2h3r1R2″ target=”_new”>LG’s and Apple’s new UltraFine 4K display. While it has a smaller 21.5-inch screen, the UltraFine has true 4K resolution (4,096×2,304), built-in speakers, 3 additional USB-C ports, higher 500 cd/m2 brightness, and a wider DCI-P3 color gamut. LG’s UltraFine 4K display is $524 — only $25 extra — until December 31.”
