in lieu of carrying a projector, for a small group of people, this is perfect.  It could also be used as a temporary kiosk if another display goes out - there are a lot of uses for an extra monitor.   If you have one of those fruity PCs, this would be an ideal second display so you don't need a proprietary plug, either.

agreed. I been looking for a monitor like this, although not so much as using a USB port, but close enough.

What's the Point? That's the reason for a laptop.  Sounds like a waste of time and money. If you think the screen is too small, you need glasses.

the point is for portable productivity. I'm sorry you don't see the point in it, but some of us actually prefer two monitor setups anywhere. What do small screens have to do with anything?

There are useful tasks which don't require high frame rates. ;) I have a use in mind for something like this already. It would make a great moving map display addition to my triplehead desktop display when using Flight Simulator. I use a small notebook now, but there really isn't room for it on my desk beside the triplehead. This display could be wall-mounted adjacent to the displays and free up some desk space. And the price is certainly reasonable. I expected it to be higher.

Puh-lease.  The whole point of a notebook is for portability convenience.  Now they're trying to turn it into a dual-monitor work station. And through a USB connection no less.  I'm sure the framerate is just stellar.

Dumb.

portable productivity is why. We don't ALWAYS have a desktop with multiple monitors available, and a laptop is usually the next best thing.

Besides, USB isn't THAT bad, and even so, you don't need a 120mhz monitor for work-related items either, unless you're doing 3D rendering or similar items, and even then, you'd probably be using a desktop then.
