Lenovo announced the ThinkVision M14t mobile monitor. The 14-inch FHD monitor supports touch and active pens, increasing the versatility of the display. The ThinkVision M14t connects to a PC through USB-C and allows you to extend your PC's experience while you're on the go. It also works with Android phones.
The ThinkVision M14t builds off the impressive ThinkVision M14 that earned a rare five out of five in our review last November. The ThinkVision M14t keeps nice features like the ability to adjust the height and tilt of the display while also adding touch and pen support. It supports active pens with up to 4096 pressure levels of sensitivity and ten-points of touch. This opens the door for the display to be used as an artistic accessory or by people who need to mark up documents.
The display works in both portrait and landscape orientations and has an L-shaped dongle which makes cable management a bit easier. It has two USB-C ports that can be used to connect to a PC. The ThinkVision M14t supports power passthrough as well, allowing you to charge a laptop and the mobile display at the same time.
In his review of the ThinkVision M14, our executive editor, Daniel Rubino said it is "The best portable secondary display you can buy. Period." It earned those marks thanks to its design, versatility, and light weight. If the ThinkVision M14t improves off its predecessor, it should be a solid mobile display.
The mobile display starts at $449 and will be available in September of this year.
