VAIO (yes, the former Sony brand) has announced that it has created the world's lightest (and thinnest) portable display with the new VAIO Vision+ 14. The display is designed for those who work in various locations and use a laptop, where a second display would come in handy. The new VAIO Vision+ is a 14-inch 16:10 aspect-ratio portable display with a 1920 x 1200 pixel resolution and weighs 325 grams.

It's undoubtedly light for its dimensions-312 x 12.4 (3.9mm at the thinnest part) x 211mm - but there is a catch: The cover/stand attaches to the display, bringing the total weight up to 440 grams. Yeah, calling it the lightest without factoring in the cover and stand is a little bit 'hmm,' but it still looks like an impressive portable and external display for work.

Carrying a laptop and a portable display isn't ideal; lighter is better, so the VAIO Vision+ 14 is impressive.

And if you're wondering if a thing and light portable display would be flimsy, you needn't worry, as VAIO is known for creating particularly sturdy and robust computer hardware. The VAIO Vision+ was designed in Japan and underwent rigorous quality tests. VAIO engineers randomly select every 50th unit produced to ensure it can withstand heavy use.

The VAIO Vision+ 14 is currently only available in Japan, with a retail price of roughly around $340 USD. Worldwide availability is TBC. Here are the full specs.
