Getting extra screen real estate is always a plus, no matter what your current monitor configuration is. AOC’s latest screen is a USB monitor, and it’s light enough to make carrying it around a possibility, which is good for mobile road warriors who need portable workstations.
It AOC e1649fwu portable monitor comes with a built-in USB port, which also powers the monitor. That cuts down on wires and it can function in dual or multi-monitor setups. If you need a projector, but haven’t got one on hand, the monitor can help out. The display’s resolution is 1366 × 768 and it comes with a built-in stand, which folds up. It’s a 15.6-inch LED-backlit LCD panel, and the whole thing weighs 2.4 lbs.
It will go on sale in October 2011 for just $139 (USD) at AOC’s site. That’s not a bad deal for an extra screen, especially compared to AOC’s prime competitor, the $199, 14-inch Toshiba Mobile Monitor.
