Monitor 2 GoAt CES 2011, Natali Morris takes a First Look at a portable monitor for your laptop called Monitor 2 Go.
-Hi! I'm Natali Morris with CNET. You're watching our coverage at the 2011 Consumer Electronic Show. You're taking a First Look at Monitor 2 Go. This is for people who are like me who travel a lot, but like a lot of screen real estate. So this is essentially an external screen. It gives you an extra 15 inches on top of whatever it is your laptop is giving you. So, this will fit right in your laptop bag with your laptop. It's an extra 4 pounds and then it opens up and gives you an entire 15-inch screen. Now, it does have its own external power, so you're gonna need to plug it in along with your laptop. You can use it just like this, but you can see there's no keyboard or anything like that. Or you can open it all the way, turn it like that which is hard to do standing. Look it in place and then it has got its own little kickstand in the back here, so this would sit right next to your laptop while you're working and just give you a whole other screen to work with, which is kind of nice if you're a graphic designer, someone who works with a lot of spreadsheets. This will cost $279 and again it's about a 4-pound, 15.4-inch external monitor. I'm Natali Morris. You've just taken a First Look at Monitor 2 Go at our coverage of CES 2011.
