Eight months after it was announced at IFA, Asus is finally ready to begin selling its portable USB-C monitor. The Asus ZenScreen MB16AC is a 15.6-inch full HD display that comes in at just 8mm thick and features a foldable smart case that can act as a stand.

AOC announced a similar portable monitor a couple weeks ago, but it’s bulky and ugly compared to the ZenScreen. Asus’ monitor can auto-rotate between landscape and portrait modes, and it comes with a ZenScreen stylus and a USB-A adapter for users without USB-C ports.

The Asus ZenScreen is expected to be available in the US in July for $249, but may hit retailers in Europe by the end of the month, according to AnandTech.
