When traveling, do you miss your home desktop’s dual-monitor setup? If so, get a portable monitor and pair it with your laptop. There are several portable monitors you can choose from, but the new Asus ZenScreen MB16AC ($250) portable monitor is arguably the most beautiful. The 15.6-inch, 1080p IPS monitor is near bezel-less, save for a slight sliver at its base. It weighs just 780 grams and, at 8mm thick, it’s thin enough to slide into your backpack’s laptop sleeve, next to your laptop, without you even noticing.
