Ordered a mac mini today for my parents. I love apple displays but just can't afford the price. Anyone have any suggestions for a relatively inexpensive monitor that can work out of the box?

Needs to have WebCam, Mic and Speakers (but could leave the speakers out if it is a deal breaker).

Thoughts & Suggestions?

Thanks!

You get a lot better sound and video quality by getting external speakers and webcam though...

As far as I can tell, it has no built-in speakers

Agreed - no speakers. They can just use there old logitechs. Im wondering about the webcam and mics. It seems reviews on built in webcams that are non apple are all over the place in experiences.

I have the HP 2009M, but this is a newer model (comes with good speakers)
