The touch screen is 27-inch with resolution 1080p and 16: 9 aspect ratio. It has three cameras and eight microphones, which will make your calls look and sound better than a laptop computer your. THE DTEN ME It connects to the internet via WiFi or Ethernet, and also has an HDMI port.
It can also be used for content sharing or commentary, in case you need to highlight a graph or something similar.
