today dropped us a note to let us know that its new 22-inch high-definition USB-powered display (model e2251Fwu) is now available nationwide. The e2251Fwu is a nifty 22-inch monitor that has the potential to transform your laptop into a dual-display machine, so long as you have a free USB port to plug it into. And the cool thing about it is there's no external power supply.
"Embedded with DisplayLink’s USB 2.0 graphics and connectivity technology for real-time video compression/decompression, AOC’s high-definition powered display is a mere 10.6 mm thick and is an energy saving 'green' monitor running entirely on power delivered via a USB 2.0 cable," AOC explains.
The e2251Fwu boasts a Full HD 1920x1080 screen resolution, 5ms response time, LED backlight, ultra-thin frame, Energy Star compliance, and support for all the leading operating systems, including Windows XP/Vista/7 and Mac OS X Tiger/Leopard/Lion.
AOC set the MSRP for the e2251Fwu at $199.
