The U160 comes with a foldable carry case that doubles up as a monitor stand

HP introduces its first ever USB-powered monitor

HP is focusing mostly on monitors at this year’s CES, with its new range featuring the firm’s first portable USB-powered monitor.

The U160 is a 15.6-inch monitor specifically built for portability. Connecting to laptops via USB, the monitor comes with a foldable carry case that doubles up as a monitor stand.

Weighing 3.4 pounds, and with a thickness of 1.2-inches, the U160 is only slightly heavier than the average ultrabook.

Those who are in need of a second screen but also intend to do a lot of traveling will find HP’s new portable monitor very appealing.

The U160 features a 1,366×768 resolution screen and is expected to start retailing from the end of January for $179 (£110).
