The Raspberry Pi is great when tucked away being part of the internet of things, but it's best when you're enjoying the web, watching a video, or doing anything else a more expensive and bigger computer can do. Best of all, there are plenty of great products that let you take it all with you. Check out these ultra-portable screens for your Raspberry Pi.

Works as a portable gaming monitor

You get 13 inches and 1080p, which means you'll love what you see on this display. Since it's built with the Raspberry Pi in mind, there's no hassle setting things up either. And if you want to unplug it from your Pi, you can use it as a portable gaming monitor for either your PlayStation 4 or Xbox.

Newsoul 7-inch Raspberry Pi touchscreen

No need to buy a separate stand for your screen

This 7-inch display comes with its own stand and has dual-speakers so everything sounds as good as it looks. Not only is it compatible with the Raspberry Pi suite of products, but this display will also work with your computers and gaming consoles. 

Bottom line

The Raspberry Pi is no slouch when it comes to video. With the current model supporting dual 4K monitors, it has the power to drive just about any screen. While you're home you can use a larger monitor or television, but for something more portable we like the GeekPi 7-inch Raspberry Pi Display. If you need a small display for your Raspberry Pi and don't feel like working through set up files or carrying a special high-power charger to run it, you'll love it too.
