MWC 2019- Lenovo’s ThinkVision M14: An extra monitor for your laptop

Lenovo is planning to launch the ThinkVision M14 this summer at a cost of $249. This new 14-inch USB-C monitor is thin, light, and portable.
Lenovo has made a portable USB-C monitor that can add an extra screen to your laptop. Over the years we’ve seen a variety of portable monitors, but most of them were bulky and awkward. The big promise of USB-C for monitors looks to be finally arriving, and Lenovo’s ThinkVision M14 looks like a superb attempt. It is a 14-inch IPS display (1920 x 1080) that weighs around1.3 pounds and attachable to a laptop through USB-C.
Lenovo’s portable USB-C monitor will not have a battery that means your laptop, tablet, or even phone can be paired with the display. Lenovo isn’t providing estimates on the power draw, but it shouldn’t be considered for this type of display. To support power pass through Lenovo is also offering an adapter, so you can charge and power the monitor at the same time. At MWC it surprised with its weight and thinness.
Lenovo has tried its best that isn’t bulky, and there’s even a cover to protect the display if you’re slipping it into a bag. There are two USB-C ports on either side, which makes easy to position the cable whether you want to use this to both sides of the laptop. Lenovo has created most of the components into the base, which felt strong during earlier time with it. There’s an additional stand at the base also which can raise the height of the monitor to better bring it in line with your laptop, which is a good option to have.
The only disappointing aspect is the display chin. Let’s hope that Lenovo, HP, and other PC makers move away from these display chins in favour of bezeless displays. Though, it’s a trend that is going on. Still, these portable monitors are becoming a light way of adding an extra laptop screen when you’re mobile. It is very useful when you need extra space for work like editing photos or videos.
