First Impressions: ThinkVision Touch Mobile Monitor is a 13” Travel Companion

Usually, monitors aren’t much to write home (or blog) about, but the Lenovo ThinkVision LT1423p Touch Mobile Monitor looks like it has the potential to be a game-changer.  That is because, those who have made the jump to Windows 8 on non-touchscreen devices can use the LT1423p to take advantage of those touch features on Windows 8 without getting a whole new computer.

Making its debut at CES, the diminutive 13.3” monitor is just 7.1 mm (.28 in) thick at its thinnest point, and weighs 730 g (1.6 lbs). The idea here is that not only can this monitor bring a touchscreen Windows 8 experience to a non-touchscreen PC, but it also adds to a mobile user’s productivity workflow by allowing them to easily transport a second display to use with their laptop. With the LT1423p, business owners will be also able to have a separate monitor for customers to use to sign for payments or continue shopping, while others can use it as a second monitor  for presentations and reports.

Spec-wise, the Mobile Monitor also has an AH-IPS LED display with a 1600 x 900 resolution, that has support for 10-point multi-touch, and it is protected by Gorilla Glass, with anti-glare and anti-fingerprint surfaces on top of that. All in all, this is a portable monitor that is designed to be durable and hold up to the riggers of a mobile lifestyle.

The Lenovo ThinkVision LT1423p will be available in Q2 2013 for about $350 for the Wired USB 3.0 version. It will also be available in a wireless model, which will cost a bit more and weigh a bit more, but will be able to wirelessly connect to a PC over Wi-Fi. And it’s important to note that the monitor will work with all Windows 8 PCs, not just Lenovo PCs.

  1. Seemed a bit laggy in the video. If they can work that out before it goes to market and keep the price in check it could be really cool. If it cost comes even sort of close to a nice Android tablet ($350) then its a no go…at least to me.
