Q: I have a huge collection of ebooks and I wish to read them on some handheld screen. Some way of just connecting a HANDHELD LCD/TFT/touchscreen to my computer?

    Picked as best answer

    Anything in this realm isnt going to be an item that you would leave plugged in to the computer as most people that want a handheld reader want to be able to take that away from the computer.

    Generally these portable options are as cheap as a small LCD monitor would be anyway.

    My personal suggestion would be an amazon kindle. It uses an e-ink display that is a very similar experience to reading a piece of paper, so you don’t have the same eye strain as reading from an LCD screen.

    For something like a sketch pad for working with your computer, you’ll want to look at the offerings from Wacom: http://www.wacom.com
