An ultra-thin, portable monitor features a touch screen for Mac and PC, helping laptop users access more screen space.
18 January 2021, Sydney, NSW – espresso, the award-winning portable monitor and consumer electronics upstart, has launched its Display product line, a series of ultra-thin monitors to give customers extra screen real-estate they can take wherever they go.
Available online for $299 USD (£249 GBP), espresso Displays is a premium touchscreen monitor with a high quality aluminium design, which makes life easier for those working away from an office desk, but still having the benefit of a double screen. At only 5.5 mm in thickness, it is the world’s thinnest monitor, making it an ultra-portable solution for your on-the-go usage.
Will Scuderi, Co-Founder of espresso said: “2020 has accelerated the need for products that improve productivity anywhere, not just in the office. We focused on designing a display that is portable enough to be taken anywhere but does not compromise on functionality.”
“We’re designing a way for people to take the best parts about their office with them, to wherever they want. Previously that would be travelling, more recently it is having more flexibility in various locations around the house.”
The Display itself has premium-specifications, including a high brightness and wide colour range, and can connect to your devices with only a single cable needed.

Scott McKeon, Co-Founder of espresso said: “Our early customers range from people with hearing impairments, looking for a way to show voice-to-text on a screen larger than their mobile phone, to engineers, designers, data scientists and even various music producers.”
“A versatile product like ours has many applications, being compatible with various laptops, phones, consoles and other devices. We’re excited to be creating products that provide more flexibility with how and where users can comfortably work from. Being without multiple screens becomes frustrating very quickly for many tasks in today’s digital workforce.”
