The Espresso monitor relies on a single cable to connect with your Mac—a USB-C connection—so you won’t be dealing with a bunch of cables with this unit, and that makes it even more portable. The screen also comes with built-in speakers and a 2.5mm audio out. The screen is available in two sizes: 13.3 inches or 15.6 inches. At just under 0.2 inches thick, this screen isn’t difficult to carry with you (it weighs less than two pounds).

It is constructed of glass and aluminium, which makes it match nicely with your MacBook. Two USB-C ports and a mini HDMI port on the side allow for more connectivity (the USB-C previously mentioned is for power only). The screen offers 4K resolution and can be set up for touchscreen functionality using a driver that is installed on your Mac. You can also pick up the screen with an optional folding stand, which uses a unique magnetic mounting system to attach to the screen. A soft case is included with the screen that can be used to protect it while in transit.

The magnetic MountGo retails for AUD$99.
