Increase productivity while traveling

by | Jun/13/2012

So, you have a MacBook Air or one of the competing Ultrabook computers so you can travel light on the road. But what about being productive in your hotel room? You may find your screen’s real-estate is severely limited. That just leads to a bunch of switching back and forth between application windows. Until now…

If you travel a lot, even around town, then seriously consider adding additional lightweight portable screens to your laptop bag.

Another use for an additional portable monitor is during visits and meetings outside of the office. You can have one screen for you to look at and another that you show to your customers and prospects.

The monitors connect to a USB port on your laptop. I have two of the Lenovo ThinkVision LT1421 14″ LCD monitors. Alternative monitors on the market that I’ve not tried include the AOC E1649FWU 16″ USB-Powered Portable LED Monitor and also the Toshiba 14-inch USB Ultra-portable Mobile LCD Monitor (No, I do not receive any kind of compensation for recommending products. Options are provided to you in order to save you time searching so that you can have choices when you determine what works best for you).

Best wishes as you and your team members become even more productive!
