Mimo Mini USB Monitors Make a Comeback

Add some extra screen estate to your laptop setup with one of four Mini USB Monitors from Mimo. Though we introduced the Mimo line earlier last year, we noticed they made a disappearing act halfway through its production run. Now, just in time for Christmas, they're back in full swing with a bunch of new editions including touch-screen support and an improved base design...

Each Mino Mini features a 7-inch screen, a single USB 2.0 connection with your computer, 800x480 resolution, and the ability to rotate to portrait or landscape view. While it definitely isn't enough to convince us to abandon our 20" Dell Ultrasharp at home, it seems more than enough to give a nice productivity boost when you need it.

You can also go for one of the two touch-screen models which features a folding stand (and half the size of the iMo monitor), that allows for full portability of the extra screen in your backpack. As far as sensitivity goes, you can control everything on-screen with finger or stylus, and is a perfect solution for Photoshop users looking for a budget version of Wacom's very pretty, but pricey Cintiq.

The Mimo Mini USB Monitors start at $130 and run up to $230, depending on the selected model. Available now at Thinkgeek.

Mac Users, Please Note: Using the 720-S Slider Touch on Mac OS requires additional touchscreen drivers not included with the Mimo monitor. These drivers cost an additional $30 (Yeah.. kind of lame) and are available from the Mimo website located here.
