I've looked online at the evidence for a 110ppi monitor. That basically narrows it down to either a 24inch 1080p or 27 inch 1440p. The third option would...

    It's an older (2010) 15" MacBook Pro I still own which keeps astounding me on how excellent it still runs after all these years, (I am not a gamer though). The only problem is it's manifesting some GPU glitches sometimes, like when opening some big sized PNG images on Preview (not always...

    Macintosh Plus with connection to an external monitor

    I have a 1986 Mac Plus M0001A. I was one of a few Graphic Designers to use a Mac Plus in NYC to produce my work on a Mac Pus.
