HP has launched a new 24-inch colour critical display, the DreamColor Z24X G2. The key target customers are artists, photographers and filmmakers, but HP says the affordable WUXGA (1,920 x 1,200) resolution display is also relevant to architects, product, automotive and apparel designers.

Yet the original vans, designed by styling maestro Flaminio Bertoni, are mostly rumbling on from their heyday well over 50 years ago.
