Which external display would u guys recommend for me and size would be suited for me.
I use my mba mainly for programing, surfing the web and casual gaming (Heros of Newerth only)

My budget is 200 dollars and i found this.

Not a computer gamer so can't really help you there. For programming and everything else I am currently using a 23-inch Acer H233H.

I have my screen layout so rather then going side to side. It's top to bottom. Air on the bottom. Have it positioned so I use my air as my keyboard / mouse.

Not in the market, but dell (http://accessories.us.dell.com/sna/productdetail.aspx?sku=A3401314&cs=19&c=us&l=en&dgc=CJ&cid=24471&lid=566643&acd=10550055-3224826-3-9189-nil-nil-6-nil) currently has a 27-inch for $209

Update: Just bought http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004TPTTS6?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER for 140!

Any feedback for this monitor would be nice. I'm planning to test it to see if i like it. If not, I will return it.

That samsung looks nice ... there are a ton of good choices for 1080p monitors ( 1920 x 1080 resolution ) in the 200 and under range.

Most people like the 24 or 23 inch ones but there are some good ones also in the 21 and 20 inch size range also.

I ( like one of the other people in this thread ) have an acer bought principally because it look fairly good and was not too expensive. Mine is a 24 inch version.

There is not a whole lot of difference ( my opinion ) in the quality of many of them in the 200 and under category. Samsung of course is a quality name ...

Try checking out what is available at your local ( pick one ) hardware retailer ( like best buy ).

Does the 11's fan kick on when pushing 1900x1080? Normal surfing and coding.
