    When I see one I may change my opinion but at the moment having LED's in the front of monitor is a total fart of an idea.

    There are many monitors with smaller frame. And many notebooks have led stripe under display too. Just not with changing color (as far as I know).

    Anyway, including thin borders in patent is pretty stupid.
    And patenting that there are 5 LEDs changing color under screen which has millions of pixels changing colors... That's beyond stupid.

    That's the stupid US patent system, where you can try to patent round corners and a black frame on a smartphone :rolleyes:
    And honestly, on that surround picture in Hilbert's OP, that "thin frame" doesn't look that thin either... frameless, now that's something I want to see, anything else still breaks it for me (hence no multi display setup).

    The Acer Predator X34P already has the LED feature (tho all LED have the same color opposed to being able to have a different color on each LED)

    Another pointless patent holding back development.

    And that's why technology can't move forward, because of such patents that restricts development.

    Patents are like unions:
    When used properly, they help increase productivity and incentivise better results, but it doesn't take much for them to be very destructive. At least in the case of MSI, the product is niche enough where I don't think the negative consequences are going to matter much. This isn't a product that everyone is chasing after.
