Lenovo ThinkVision LT1421 Adds Second LCD Display via USB
August 11th, 2011
The thing I hate most about working on the road is that I have to use a tiny notebook keyboard and screen. Even if I use a full-size notebook, the largest screen you generally get is 14-inches or so. That’s not enough space for a person used to a 30-inch desktop LCD. Generally, it’s not easy to take another display with you on the road, but Lenovo has changed that.
Similar to Toshiba’s Mobile Monitor, Lenovo has announced a new portable LCD called the ThinkVision LT1421. It’s a 14-inch 16:9 display, and combined with the screen already on your notebook it will give you a lot more screen real-estate or can also provide display mirroring. It uses a picture frame stand on the back and has 16-levels of brightness. The display is angle adjustable and comes with a cover to protect it on the go. The display is very portable and will make it much easier to get more screen space on the road.
Lenovo is mum on the hard specs of the screen right now, but considering that the thing only needs a single USB connector for power and video, you might not want to run it on full brightness unless you want to drain your battery laptop quickly.
