WIMAXIT's 15.6 portable touch monitor adds valuable screen real estate to the "mobile office" of the laptop-wielding road warrior. The convenience of "more screen" does come with some downsides, however.
Long before switching to the Surface Pro 2017 with its 12.3-inch display, I used a 17-inch HP laptop. Though I've always missed the extra inches I sacrificed, the portability convenience of the powerful yet compact Surface Pro more-or-less balanced the scales. I use the Surface Pro to run my business Ward Advocacy, LLC and for writing content for Windows Central. I do both on the go or when at a desk, and often need more screen than the Surfaces' 12.3-inches comfortably provides.
When set up at home, my Surface Pro is sometimes connected to my 27-inch Dell monitor to provide extra space for multiple Windows, video, and more. When on the go, I've been giving WIMAXIT's 15.6-inch portable touch monitor (sent to me for review) a spin to do the same. The experience has been great and has genuinely improved my workflow. Still, anyone planning to spend $259 on this monitor must weigh the benefits of extra touchscreen real-estate against their personal workflow needs. There are also a few cons inherent to this device to consider as well as genuine concerns related to how packing an extra device may impact one's mobile needs.
