    Hey guys,

    Brand new to the forums so excuse me if this has already been asked a million times.
    I just ordered a 13" MBP for its portability, i will be doing a lot of traveliing with it, but when i am home i want to be able to hook it up to a decent size screen (21-23") for web editing and light Indesign and Photoshop work.
    So my question is as follows, what brand should i go for and is there any particular models that people out there have great experiences with? I wont be able to afford a Cinema Display so please do not suggest this, thanks :)

    Your input is much appreciated...

    Until I sprung for an ACD this week (sorry but it is totally amazing :)), I was using one of the HP 1907w monitors for about 18 months. Great quality and reasonable prices. Looks-wise its black and aluminium frame is a good match for the MacBook Pro. HP do them in sizes up to 27", I think. Glossy screen but I did plenty of web development and a bit of photo editing on it and found no problems. I'm actually keeping it as a secondary monitor to use with my powerbook.

    Also, try the refurb store for an ACD?

    Thank you for your reply, i will certainly look into the HP screens, i have one at work and i am actually pretty satisfied with that both the design and performance seems pretty good for my needs...

    Is it in any way possible that Denmark does not have a refurb store? I cant seem to find it anywhere...:confused:

    Thanks a bunch, doesnt look like there is anything in it though as you say. Maybe DK is just to small a country to have any refurbs? One never know if a ACD will pop up, ill keep my eyes on it. I still have a little time to decide on what screen im going for.
