The espresso display claims to be the world's thinnest touchscreen and it can even make your MacBook a touchscreen... kind of. Let's see what Riley thinks.

Wait, where was the whole part where you showed it as a touch screen?!? Not just that wee bit at the front? Now, I'm confused!

Объективно жаль, что только Самсунг сейчас Форсит тему с подключением своих устройств к различным док станциям. Для работы с 90% потребительских задач такая связка была бы очень удобна: браузер, стриминг, работа с документами. А относительно этого монитора, для графики и монтажа он навряд ли подходит, только для работы с таблицами и текстом. Но пока развернешь всю свою переносную рабочую станцию в какой нибудь кофешке, твой эспрессо ужа давно остынет.

Why not mention the annoying wobbling when actually using the whole point of the display - the touchscreen ability?

So, in the title, they sell the video as being about a touchscreen for Mac, Linus teases it at the very beginning ... but then the review mentions nothing about it whatsoever. Anyone else feeling slightly betrayed right now?

honestly was amazed by this until the stand. A touch screen monitor cant be wobbly the only way that much wobble would be acceptable is if it wasn't being touched to be used.

If it weren't for the price and the specs this would be pretty interesting. I mean if this were in the $100-$150 range I'd actually consider it but for twice plus no thank you. I'm sure there's a market for this but it's a pretty small very niche one.

A solution in search of a problem. The whole point of laptops is portability, and sacrificing screen space is part of the deal. Adding a “portable monitor” adds screen space by sacrificing some portability, and if you need to do that, there are other solutions - bigger laptops, or return to your office or home and dock to your desktop setup. And if you’re a MacBook and iPad owner, you could just use Sidecar.

I think it would be nice if you did a video on which portable monitor someone should depending on their use (like you've already done with entire computer and stuff). I think that most people who would want a portable monitor would want it for basic desktop stuff but still some could want more color accurate ones, high refresh rates ones, etc...

Using touch screen on monitors is a shit experience. Other than that the monitor keeps wobbling around, your hands pains in just a few minutes. The ergonomics are shit. I kinda get why Apple does not want to give touchscreen and I am with them on this one.

Probably the thinnest among mainstream brands sure, but I have a "4mm thick" portable 4k touchscreen from aliexpress (it's not if you measure it pessimistically, but neither is this thing going by the ports) that cost around the same asking price. I love these portable monitors but if anything the thinner ones make me uneasy, I have an ~11mm thick model as well and it's much more reassuring to interact with.

This could be the device I'm searching for, due to MacOS support. Could you tell me if it supports gestures, etc please? I ask for a rather unique reason. I'm blind and use VoiceOver on the Mac. I'm searching for a touch screen to allow me to control particular software to provide me with an easier way of working, rather than routing to an iPad, etc, I'd rather a direct display. If you could advise me, I'd much appreciate it. Also, who's the manufacturer? this is so I can contact them directly to ask if they could provide a unit on trial in order to undertake R&D to particular accessibility software to encourage Apple to officially support touch environments within MacOS and VoiceOver. Why should the ipad have all the fun?

The wobbliness is plain horrible. It is impossible to use this screen as touch screen with such movement. My HP laptop doesn't seem wobbly at all, but once i start poking fingers around, have to hold it still with another hand when i need accuracy.

Hey Mahip! If you want to use your Mac with an espresso Display, you don't need to install a driver. However, to take advantage of the touch feature on the Display with your Mac, you need to have our espresso Touch Software installed on your device. Hope this helps! 🙂

That dude is annoying a f.... Gotta be a pretty close friend, or good at something else?? then "tech" since Linus stated he wanted to hire him. He got no info about the product, are not validating the claimed specs, and fx checking the brightness that often is highly overpromised and close to 200 then 300, he has spent no time actually examing the content and what could be interesting to show for the viewers, that you're afterall trying to sell this product too. all you doing is sitting like a bozo and fooling around with it and acting more stupider than I reckon you actually are.
