View Full Version : External monitor advice... 21.5" (w/HDMI) vs. 23"

I am debating between two monitors. Both are pretty identical. The resolutions are the same and the price is the same. One is a 21.5" widescreen and the other is a 23" widescreen.

The resolutions on both are 1920x1080.

The 21.5" monitor comes with DVI-D and HDMI ports but the 23" widescreen comes with only DVI-D.

I am still using a 12" PowerBook G4 1.5GHz notebook. This notebook only has mini DVI but I plan on upgrading to either a MacBook or MacBook Pro in June.

What should I go for? The smaller monitor (but same resolution) that has HDMI or the larger monitor that only has DVI-D? Again, they are the same price.

I don't know if it really makes a difference but the 21.5" is also rated at 2ms while the 23" is 5ms.
