The Packed Pixels Portable Monitors help your laptop feel like the home office

Packed Pixels

Traveling for work can be fun from time to time, but the downside is that you’re always stuck on your laptop. It’s just not the same as the home setup where you have your overpowered PC, two or more monitors, and a mouse and keyboard that are comfortable to use for more than a few hours. While you can’t bring all the comforts of home with you, that doesn’t mean you can’t at least have an extra monitor or two on the road.

While the Packed Pixels will pale in comparison to what we have at home, they’ll at least make us feel more comfortable working from more than one screen. This will give you a pair of mounting brackets for your laptop, a desk stand, all the necessary cables, and of course, a Packed Pixels Monitor. These screens use Hi-Res 2048 x 1536 9.7” screens that are the same as the iPad, which means you’ll get all that visual crispness without having to clutter up your work space.

To put this on only requires you to slide on the bracket since it can fit a variety of screen thicknesses and sizes. Yes, this means whether you have an 11 or 17” laptop, the brackets will fit. Since it will plug in directly, you also don’t need to worry about any drivers. Whether you need it for work or play, this will give you a lot more visual room to get the job done as you can have it in portrait or landscape mode. If you’re only looking for one extra screen, you can get the whole kit and kaboodle for around $230.
