LG showed off its first monitor with a cinematic 21:9 aspect ratio at IFA last year, and the company's back in 2013 with a similarly proportioned all-in-one PC. The IPS 21:9 UltraWide All-In-One PC, as LG calls it, appears to feature the same display as the 29-inch 2560 x 1080 monitor, along with a TV tuner, Windows 8, and Nvidia GeForce GT 640M graphics. Other specifications, such as whether it'll feature a touchscreen, are yet to be announced; the PC will be shown off at this year's IFA trade show.

With Philips discontinuing sales of its Cinema 21:9 TVs last year, why would anyone want such a stretched-out PC? According to LG, the displays "make multitasking more convenient with extra screen real estate," and users can also divide the screen into four separate parts. Of course, movie buffs will no doubt appreciate the opportunity to watch anamorphic films in their true format without resorting to stretching or letterboxing.
