postheadericon MMT’s DisplayLink-equipped 15.4-inch USB Monitor2Go given a $279 price

Both DisplayLink and MMT seem pretty darn proud to be revealing the 15.4-inch Monitor2Go here at CES, but in reality, this unit has already been around the block. If you’ll recall, the Field Monitor Pro was first spotted a few weeks back, and now MMT is introducing a rebadged version in Vegas. The good news, however, is that we finally have a price to pore over: $279, and it’ll ship to consumers later this quarter. For those that missed last month’s slip, this fold-up monitor can be used alongside any machine (PCs are green-lit, Mac support is in beta) with a USB port, offering a 1280 x 800 screen resolution and a number pad to boot. Of course, since DisplayLink is behind the pixels, up to six screens can be daisy-chained off of a host computer’s single USB port to create a massive video wall — something we strongly encourage, of course.

postheadericon Field Monitor Pro: ‘portable’ 15.4-inch USB monitor packs number pad, DisplayLink

This, friends, is the ThinkPad W700‘s worst nightmare. Rather than forcing consumers into buying a gargantuan lappie with an inbuilt secondary display (or settling for one of Mimo’s diminutive alternatives), Mobile Monitor Technologies has an even better solution: this thing. The four-pound Field Monitor Pro is sure to be a hot seller over at Accountemps, with a fold-flat design and a spacious 15.4-inch LCD underneath. Essentially, this is a 15-inch laptop sans the guts, boasting just a 1280×800 LED-backlit display, a rear kickstand, two Kensington lock slots, a pair of USB 2.0 sockets, DisplayLink technology and a full-on number pad. It’s designed to be used in both lay-flat or stood-up modes, and if you’re looking for a more permanent solution, it can also be mounted on a nearby wall. Unfortunately, you’ll still need a separate AC line running to a wall outlet, and the relatively low resolution isn’t apt to drop any jaws. Head on past the break for a peek at what exactly this beast can offer, and then wait patiently for a price as “busy season 2011” swings in. Ah, the sweet smell of taxes coming due.

[Thanks, Ian]
