Today at CES, Lenovo announced its new Lenovo ThinkVision LT1423p Touch Mobile Monitor, a 13.3-inch 1600 x 900 mobile touchscreen that comes either wired or wireless. Thanks to 10-point multi-touch capacity, tough Gorilla Glass, and an impressive wireless range, the Lenovo LT1423 touch monitor carries the potential to wear many hats.
Wired via a USB 3.0 connection and used as a dual-screen monitor, the Lenovo LT1423p ups productivity and provides touch sensitivity – an especially useful bonus for providing the full Windows 8 experience on an otherwise non-touch computer. Shifted beside the mousepad, it can also serve as an oversized, highly sensitive drawing tablet. The LT1423p comes with a pressure-sensitive digital pen with 256 pressure levels that enable precision writing and drawing.
The wireless version allows the Lenovo LT1423p to be used anywhere in the same room as the original PC. Transmitting data via WiFi, the wireless monitor enables more imaginative applications. With a broad viewing angle, a slim profile (1.6 pounds. and 0.3 to 0.6 inches thick), and an anti-reflective LED surface, the touch monitor lends itself easily to collaborative use. It can transform into a fully visualized control pad for a multi-media presentation, or enable business partners to work on the same spreadsheet, even if they are not sitting side-by-side (on a WiFi-enabled plane, for instance). The Lenovo LT1423p boasts up to four hours of battery life and starts at $349.
Stay tuned for a hands-on review.
