My first thought when I saw Dell’s awesome-looking 34-inch curved monitor at CES was, “Wow, that’d be amazing for photo editing.” Price tag aside, the idea of having a single screen — with its viewing angle optimized from edge-to-edge by the slight curve of the display – to replace the two monitors I have wedged next to each other in a “V” is quite appealing.
