Not all computer monitors are created equal. A cheap monitor might work for the person who only goes on Facebook and checks email occasionally. A better monitor is needed for gamers to get all the colors and graphics nuances that video games offer. People working in digital production of video or print media need even more performance from a monitor.
When it comes to working comfortably on a computer, people are willing to spend some big money for keyboards, mice, and other peripherals that are comfortable and easy to use.

Satechi has a new monitor stand that is called the F1 Smart Monitor Stand.
This week a number of early benchmark tests are appearing with clues as to the true (artificial benchmark) performance of the NVIDIA Tegra K1. This processor was introduced last week at CES 2014 with promise that it wasn't just a successor to the NVIDIA Tegra 4, it was a whole new skewed line of SoC, one capable of out-doing even last generation's biggest and best gaming consoles, like the PS3 and the Xbox 360. Now we're seeing some results that suggest the Tegra K1 works better than Apple's A7 chip and the NVIDIA Snapdragon 800 as well.
