    I would like to know what I can use as a mobile monitor.

    Let explain myself. I am often abroad for the job and I would like to have a monitor to add to my laptop in order to trade in hotels.

    for the moment I just use the laptop, but I am used to have 2 screen and I would like to feel at home....the only problem is the wheight. I don't feel like being very heavy in airport.

    So I would like to have a mobile monitor not very heavy with what I could travel easily. (not a house monitor).

    does a mobile monitor exists? or is it better to just have a second laptop?

    any idea?

    thanks and sorry for the english mistakes

    I do the same occationally.

    I bt the Shuttle XP17 LCD

    You can probably find smaller but this one is a little more rugged than most LCDs (the screen can withstand more pressure). Also the stand folds in and is not bulky

    There is also a carrying case for it.

    This monitor may be hard to find as it is relatively old, fyi
  3. I use a Samsung SyncMaster 740N as a second
    monitor for travel. It is 17", made for desktop
    but fairly light and small so it fits neatly
    into a (generic) laptop case.

    I did a google search and here whar I found about the product you talked about


    looks very nice indeed and it has been designed for traveling it seems

    Exactly what I was looking for.

    If someone has some other idea, feel free.

    I am still hesitating to just buy a secont laptop that I could connect to the principal one.

    What are the pro and con of each system?
