Hello everyone, I am going to soon buy a MBP when I go off to college but I am a little unsure about an external monitor. First of all, size... Do I want a large 23-24" or a modest 20.1." There is also brand. I seem to prefer Dell, because dang the Apple monitors are expensive. I guess my price range is around $600. Some background information: I like computer games, but nothing too crazy. Mostly WOW. So I really do not care too much about the FPS. Though, I am getting into photo editing and would like the best monitor as far as colors go. I guess that would not be the standard TN panels? S-PVA best for my purposes? Which monitors nowadays have this type of panel, because the Dell's I have been looking at seem to be TN based. Also, I am going to have a roommate and I am unsure if having a fancy monitor might be a little showy. Basically, I do not want it to grow legs and walk away while I am at class if anybody knows what I mean. I am by no means going to a horrible school (going to a UC) but I do get worried what college students might do. If I had a 24" monitor, should I be worried about it getting stolen? Is there anyway to lock the monitor down like there is for laptops? Do college students often have an external monitor for their laptops to use in their dorms? Thanks for the thoughts. Any way Apple might release some new ACD's before September? Have a good day!
