Dell is ready to compete with Microsoft’s Surface Hub for access to your giant touchscreen budget. The PC maker has announced two 4K Interactive Touch Monitors — 55-inch and 86-inch models — designed for the education and business markets.

The monitors feature 20 touch points and stylus support, but doesn’t come with a built-in PC like the Microsoft Surface Hub does (it does feature a plethora of ports, however). You can even integrate a Dell OptiPlex Micro desktop right into the back panel of the monitors without the need for a separate power cord.

The 55-inch monitor (C5518QT) will cost less than $5,000, while the 86-inch monitor (C8618QT) will come under $11,000, according to Dell, notably cheaper than Microsoft’s options. The monitors will go on sale on March 30th, according to Windows Central.
