Whether you’re editing your latest vlog for a YouTube video, downloading pictures from your latest freelance photo shoot, or working on your next big presentation in the office, sometimes a single laptop screen just won’t cut it. Especially if you’re doing any of these things away from home (or the office). You need the productivity boost of two screens allowing you to see multiple windows at the same time. That’s where portable monitors come in.

For this Dealspotr Top 5, we’re sharing our favorite portable monitors for whatever productivity needs you have, wherever you have them. Plus, won’t it be so much more fun to view this article (among other things) from dual screens?
