Portable USB Monitor

We love laptops, and travel with them extensively.  What we don’t like, is the lack of screen real estate (most of our desks run 3 BIG monitors).  There have been some portable display options out there, but they are normally small and crappy.  AOC has announced a 16″ USB monitor with some specs that make it worth a little heavier laptop bag.

Monitor specs:

  • 16″ diagonal size
  • 5ms response time
  • 50,000,000:1 contrast ratio
  • 1366 x 786 resolution
  • 16:9 aspect ratio
  • WLED backlighting
  • Power and video signal via USB connection
  • Built-in Smart Stand
  • Works in both portrait and landscape modes
  • Supports dual and multi-monitor setups
  • MSRP: $139
  • Availability October 2011.

Multi-monitor setups?  Mobile three screen setup, here we come!
