The specs list does not end here – the U2442 Extreme offers a 14-inch HD+ display at 1600 x 900, great THX TruStudio Pro audio technology and a special venting system that keeps noise to a minimum while removing unnecessary heat. All this resides in a nice sleek chassis that measures 18.5-21 mm and weighs just 1.59/1.69 kilograms.
