Laptop Travel: Review of the INNOCN Travel Monitor N1F PRO

I started life as a digital nomad 7 years ago. At this time, working from my laptop while traveling the world wasn’t heard of.

And even in 2019, it was still a very ‘out of the box’ idea for most of society, that you could pack up your belongings, grab a laptop and a travel monitor, and work from the road.
