I'm going to buy a 15" MBP with the 1680 by 1050 hi res screen and 1gb of vram soon. I want to purchase a monitor as well and was looking for some suggestions. What I am looking for but not totally set on: 23" to 25" size (bigger is okay), Asus brand, hdmi input, slim design, anything less than $300 ($350 is my absolute max). I'll be using it for editing in FCP, Adobe Suite (Photoshop, etc.), and Pro Tools. I will also use if for watching Netflix, Hulu, and such! I have been looking around and really like the Asus MX239H (for frame of reference. Let me know your suggestions though and thanks for the help!!
