ASUS MB169C+ 15.6 Inch USB Type-C Portable Monitor, FHD (1920x1080), IPS, Flicker free, Low Blue Light, TUV certified

A USB Type-C-powered companion display that's compatible with my M1 based Mac Mini, my Google Chromebook, and my iPad Pro. If you need two screens and work away from home at times this is the answer.

All you need is a single (provided) USB Type-C cable for power and video transmission. The MB169C+ is compatible with all DP Alternate (Alt) Mode or DisplayPort over USB-C devices without the need for additional drivers. The monitor comes with a case that doubles up as a stand, which although seeming fiddly at first, seems a good approach to the job. You could use some other grooved stand to hold it. There aren't any mounting points.

TL:DR — I ordered one from Amazon UK and it arrived next day. It works with my M1 based Mac Mini, my Google Chromebook, and my iPad Pro. It has a resolution of 1920x1080 which is commonly known as 'Full HD'. It is a brilliant addition to my toolkit as I travel between places a good bit and always miss my second screen. Pics below:

Heres what it looks like with my Google Pixelbook (eve). The only shortcoming really of this device is a display size of 12.3" with a default resolution setting of 1200 x 800. You can set it to 2400x1600 but it is pretty unusable like that.

And here it is on its own. Its lovely. Its light but feels good quality. The picture is bright in my home office.
