Philips DesXcape 150DM

Just because Philips's DesXcape 150DM is a wireless monitor that you can use away from your desktop PC shouldn't mean compromising on performance -- although you will have to accept higher costs until more Smart Displays reach the market and economies of scale bring the price down. The DesXcape 150DM certainly doesn't compromise on style: it's sleek, elegant and stylish and has an optional wireless keyboard that wouldn't look out of place on an executive desk. The 88-key keyboard is comfortable to use, and is equipped with a trackpad so you don't need to balance a mouse on your knee.
