I have both usb monitors, and there are pros/cons to both. Major con for me with Lenovo, is that it is bulky in the back... it is not flat, so does not fit in bag well. AOC doesn't have cover.

I work at the mines in Northern Nevada and carry it everyday in my backpack. I have had no issues and my workmate fly's all the time and I bought one because he liked his so much. The cover is getting scratched up pretty good from the environment of being used on the tailgate of a truck. Thumbs up so far.

This monitor doesn't require a case, it comes with a hard plastic cover that seems to work really well (I've had mine for a couple months now, no issues). It doesn't require the Y cable; it works just fine with the single for me, but says to use if you don't have enough power through one USB connection. Hope this helps…

No, but you can adjust the angle to some degree with the 'stand'....think 'kickstand' or the brace on the back of a picture frame. You can adjust the height by placing it on a stack of books or paper reams.

I had issues in the beginning to make it work under Kubuntu 14.04LTS. But I eventually succeeded. It is very important that your USB port deliver the required voltage. I am using a Lenovo E440 which works fine. But when I tried with Acer Travelmate 5742 it didn't.

If by "upgrades" you mean installing drivers, then no, you will need to install the DisplayLink drivers to use the monitor. If by "drag and drop from screen to screen" you mean setting up an extended desktop, then yes that is supported by the DisplayLink drivers.

The screen is 14" diagonally or 12.25" wide and 7" tall. The case is 15.5" diagonally or 13.25" wide, 8.5" tall, and 0.25" thick. Looks just like the screen of a laptop. VERY COOL! Works great.

I'm not sure about XP, but it's light enough you could use some Velcro or that new CommandHook Velcro look-alike to mount it pretty easily. It does have kind of an irregular back, but I'm sure you could make it work.
