At 0.72 lbs., Vaio’s first portable monitor is one of the lightest ever.

Vaio managed to keep the weight light partly through structural design (look at the side stand!) and partly by molding the back panel from carbon fiber, which I found to be 33 percent lighter than aluminum and significantly lighter than magnesium alloy of the same stiffness.

Speaking of durability, the company claims that the Vision has been tested in its facilities in Japan to withstand drops, bends, and years of use. The company claims (via Google Translate) that you can “use it with peace of mind in the event of an unbearable stress during rush hour or a collision when dropped.” The company also claims that the Vision has been tested in its facilities in Japan to withstand drops, bends, and years of use. He has five videos. To illustrate that the screen can handle some light torture, I’ve included one above.

It also comes with an origami-style stand cover that can be raised high enough to be a second vertical display above your laptop:

Like some other portable monitors, you can power this display from your laptop using a single included USB-C cable as long as it provides 10W — you can also connect a 65W or higher USB-C PD power supply to the monitor’s second USB-C port and charge your laptop at the same time. The display itself draws about 4W while in use, according to To Vaio spec sheetIt can transfer up to 60W maximum power to your laptop.

One unknown is image quality. Vaio doesn’t specify what kind of display we’re talking about, and while Vaio says the display covers 100 percent of the sRGB color gamut, that’s a relatively small color space for graphics professionals. The anti-glare display also only reaches 400 nits of brightness, which should be fine indoors but probably not for an outdoor coffee shop.

While Vaio sells its computers In the United States and other countriesThe company has yet to announce whether the new portable display will be available outside Japan. There, it goes on sale today for 54,800 yen (about $339) and will ship this week.
