Rounding out these aesthetics is a cable management slot with all of the connectivity ports on the back and laid out to maintain the clean lines while remaining fully accessible to the person using them.

According to Dell:

Dell’s Ultrathin Monitors are the brightest in the world. Corning Iris Glass isa glass substrate used as a light-guide plate (LGP) in Dell monitors. This best-in-class material enables an ultra-thin form factor, boosts brightness (up to 600 nits) and delivers brilliant pictures.
