"Front on, the new U2412M shares a similar layout to the other U series monitors we've seen over the last 12 months in the sense that it's quite a square design for the most part. What differs, though, is the corners are all rounded and the overall bezel seems just a few mm thinner. Like most Dell monitors, some would argue it's boring, while others will say it's simplistic which is pleasant.
The main differences between the $479 US U2410 and $329 US U2412M, though, are as you'd expect, in the panel itself. The really good news is that Dell have stuck to the 16:10 1920 x 1200 resolution and avoided making the jump to the 1920 x 1080 16:9 resolution. This is no doubt a big positive for a lot of people who indeed enjoy the higher 16:10 resolution."
