Laptop Magazine Follow-Up Video Review of the DisplayLink-Enabled Lenovo ThinkVision LT142

Laptop Magazine's excitement for the Lenovo ThinkVision LT1421 using DisplayLink technology continued to show through as the reviewer took to YouTube in a video review.

Here's a basic list of the portable monitor's features:
  • 14.1-inch display
  • 1366 x 768 resolution and matte coating
  • Less than 0.5-inch-thick screen. Full dimensions are 13.2 x 8.6 x 0.85 inches 
  • 1.8 pounds; 2.4 pounds with cover
  • Windows and Mac compatible 

Two big draws to Lenovo's monitor is the quickness and ease of setting up the portable device through a single USB port that also provides power using DisplayLink's technology (watch @2:35). And the second, is how well the device handles HD video -- the reviewer plays a fullscreen YouTube movie trailer at 720p (watch @4:50).
