    I Googled it, but I get lost in the discussions. I'm looking for a 24" or bigger, with the best specs for the money, and I wan't it to perform at the maximum supported resolution/specs of my Macbook Air. Any suggestions? Also, what adapter will I need?

    I don't know if it is the "best," but I have a 2013 MBA (13'') and I use the Dell UltraSharp U2414H 24-Inch Screen LED Monitor and find it to be a very pleasant viewing experience and believe I found one of the best pictures for the price.

    It's worth a look. The cord that came with the monitor worked just fine with my MacBook, so I didn't need to buy any adapters or cords for it.

    Check your local Craigslist for an Apple Thunderbolt Display - it's not a good deal new but I recently picked one up like new in box for $500... Just a thought.

    There is no best, buy whatever 1440p monitor that has a screen you like to look at its all subjective with screens.

    Did you ever buy a monitor for your Macbook Air mid-2013? I have the exact same model as you, so I'm very interested in your decision.
