I've recently bought a 13" retina MacBook Pro and while I love the computer, my eyes get tired from using it all day. Hence I need a good external monitor that's great (easy on my eyes) for text but also okay for photo editing when I'm at my desk. I don't want to pay more than ~$500 ish and I think a 24" screen would be the ideal size. I've had the Dell Ultra Sharp series recommended to me but I'm worried about the antiglare coating and there is no store around that sells Dell screens. I would have to order it from Dell unseen and that makes me uncomfortable. I'd much rather plug my computer into a monitor in a store and see how it looks before I buy. I have also heard that sometimes there are/were display issues with the rMBP and Dell computers and that sometimes text is fuzzy on the Dells. Maybe these are just occasional problems - if so please tell me - and all other recommendations are welcome.
