ThinkVision LT1423p Mobile Monitor Touch can be used wirelessly or via USB 3.0.


Lenovo announced the company's first Windows 8 touch-optimized portable monitor at CES 2013, the ThinkVision LT1423p Mobile Monitor Touch.

Measured at 13.3 inches, it sports a 1,600x900 resolution AH-IPS Gorilla Glass panel, with a release scheduled for sometime during the second quarter of 2013 for around $449.

The monitor's 10-point multi-touch screen boasts wide viewing angles, in addition to anti-reflection and anti-fingerprint surfaces. It's also compatible with an electro-magnetic stylus and also sports a cover and stand to support both landscape or portrait use.

The ThinkVision LT1423p Mobile Monitor Touch weighs in at 1.6 pound, with its dimensions being 0.3 inch at its thinnest and 0.6 inch at its thickest. The monitor can be utilized wirelessly through Wi-Fi or via USB 3.0.

    very interesting... a wifi monitor with battery and touchscreen would be really cool if the price is right, include a charging tray for use as a regular monitor and then taken to other parts of the hous eand connected via network... as long as the price isn't the same as a table ti cna really see there being a market for this... kudos lenovo

    $449? And it's not a full system, just a monitor and touch interface? Really?

    No system? But... how will they load it with bloatware?

    Indeed... just a monitor. Per Liliputing, there are two models, not one. The first is 349 and is connected via USB. The second is 449, connects via wifi, and includes a battery. It won't be available until June 2013.

    The USB version might be kind of useful sort-of for Win 8 PCs without touch screens. Maybe. I guess. Because spending 349 for a 13" screen seems like a really good idea. Yeah.

    @Zak: Are your facts correct? The Liliputing article seems to have more information, and it conflicts with yours on product (1 vs 2), weight, and potentially features.

    Fixed that for ya. And no, still not impressed by it. At this price, I'd rather MSFT fixed their TermSvc shadow feature and use a tablet with RD that doesn't have to be used all the time with the base computer. I bet Lucid could come up with something awesome if they put their minds to it.

    Realistically, I understand their logic with it despite this being a weird idea and high price. This has the profile of a large tablet, but it's a monitor. So let's say you would like a tablet for office use with a Core i7 CPU, 16GB, a hefty GPU, and a flagship SSD? Yea, not happening... But, using a tablet-sized touch monitor connecting back to a desktop will technically give you that experience.

    It's an extremely small niche, but I get the idea behind it...

    In general like the idea. In fact, I would like this - a tablet that I can use as a touch monitor when I want. Right now the only options are really buying some kind of app hat more or less works this way, but reviews have been conflicting about how well this works. It'd be nice if this works more seamlessly... and was bigger... and had the actual features of tablet... or was a lot cheaper. 5 stars on the idea, 2 or 1 on the execution.

    This sounds cool, I can use it as a tablet for my computer at home and still have the keyboard/mouse when needed, but at that price I might as well just buy a real tablet...

    This would work so much better as a portable touch interface for your powerful desktop if the resolution was the same as the big screen at your desk, so that you could just clone your desktop rather than switch back and fort between each which messes with the layout of your tiles (Windows 8) etc (spanning would make it even more pointless). They could offer 2 different resolutions to match the two most common desktop resolutions.
    Like 1920x1080. Then you could easily pick it up and go to your couch, or go to the next office or a meeting and show your co-workers what you were working on at your desk, etc. With the resolution they are offering, it would be too much of a hassle. Yes, this may match the resolution of some laptops, but it's pointless as the laptop is portable anyway.

    Common problem, it's called bad journalism

    Not even 1080p...

    With USB3 I wouldn't expect stylus lag, but not so sure about the WiFi version. I wonder if I could d/l the drivers on my Win8 ultrabook and test the Lenovo mobile monitor's stylus by running Photoshop while at Best Buy? The problem with in-store demos is they *never* have any of the s/w we want in order to get a real world demonstration. This looks like the coolest product from this year's CES.
