    I hated all the wires and cables they are out of control and create such an unsightly mess. So I am looking for a wireless monitor preferrable with a retractable power cord to replace my old one. I Googled it and came up empty. Does it exist? Is it too much information involved for Bluetooth to handle?

    Video connections are very high bandwidth and bluetooth was designed for low bandwidth connections. I doubt you could even find a monitor that used one of the higher-bandwidth wireless protocols because the refresh rate would be so poor.

    I heard that soon Dell will be introducing one made out of clear metal.

    Does this mean we can speak to the computer directly and do away with the keyboard also?

    I've got one of these transparent metal wireless monitors. It rocks.

    My whole system uses wireless electricity too.

    wireless speakers and headphones have always been pretty bad. I can't imagine a wireless display would be a good idea, especially since we're moving towards hi-def for everything.
