Has a Built-In Camera

The 27" Thunderbolt Display has a built-in camera, unlike most of the other flatpanel monitors of this spec and age which do not have a built-in camera.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative flatpanel monitors with a built-in camera currently available including because of its better review score, the Apple 27" Thunderbolt Display (£899).

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

We compared all the other flatpanel monitors with a built-in speaker(s) to this PC display and we think because of their better review scores, the Asus PQ321QE (£879.99), and the LG 31MU97 (£793.36) are also worth considering.

We compared this PC screen to all the other PC displays with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the Neovo RX-32 (£980.38) is also worth considering.
