The 15.6-inch screen has a resolution of 1366 x 768 and the carrying case is made of leather. It weighs 3.4 pounds and is 1.2-inches thick. For comparison's sake, this is slightly heavier than the average Ultrabook. The contrast ratio and brightness levels for the monitor are said to be comparable with the average notebook screen. HP hasn't revealed any other specifications for the monitor.
