What if you needed to take an external monitor for the laptop with you to your business trip? I bet you would refrain from that. Just imagine carrying around a monitor, a bulky power adapter for it, a power cable, a signal cable. This certainly wouldn’t be a good idea. Until now. AOC has announced a new extremely lightweight monitor that not only doesn’t need the power adapter, but even the VGA cable. Ever thought about transforming your single screen laptop into a dual-monitor computer? Stay tuned, this October, when the AOC’s USB monitor hits the market, it’s going to be as easy as never before.
The razor thin AOC e1649fwu 15.6″ LED backlit monitor has low power consumption and the only thing you need to connect it to your laptop is a free USB port. The native resolution of a monitor is impressive 1366×768 with 50M:1 contrast ratio and 5ms response time. The monitor can be used both in portrait and landscape modes and folded completely flat for easy carrying around or storage. The announced price for the AOC e1649fwu is $139.
