    You need to provide some relevant information; mostly things like budget, screen size, backlight type...

    this is a great way to add a display. and the magic mouse and apple keyboard may look cool and work superbly. but if you dont want to spend 140€ on keyboard and mouse then any stock keyboard and mouse will dot the job.

    It doesn’t sound like you have an iPad, but just to let everyone know, you can use the Air Display app to use the iPad as second screen.

    My budget in all is around 450-600. Screen Size Min-19 in. Back lighting doesnt matter to me.
