Gendered Monitors

February 2, 2017.

AOC Q2781PS.

AOC has come out with a classic, 17-inch, 2560×1440 pixel monitor, for US$499. But for an extra $100, you can get the rose gold version encrusted with genuine Swarovski crystals on the back. We’re not sure if this is chick schtick (think pink) or just a bling thing. Should you wish to prettify your cubicle, you’ll have to wait a bit, since the product isn’t yet available. I’d be in, but I work facing a wall and no-one would enjoy the razzle-dazzle.

Circuit Breaker, “When shopping for a new monitor, always get the Swarovski crystal model.”
