    Hi,
    I looking to buy an extra monitor for my MacBook Pro 2010 and was wondering which one to get. I only have $300 budget so please keep that in mind and I don't want anything more then 25 inch.

    Thanks in advance.

    Here are some monitors on Amazon. Some of the best monitors out there today are IPS, and unless you are a professional gamer, getting any mainstream IPS panel will be your best bet.

    Asus VS247H (136$ w/ rebate): It is cheap, and will honestly perform about the same as any 300$ monitor.

    Dell UltraSharp U2412M (266$): It has a 1920x1200 display, so you get an extra 120 vertical pixels. I have heard this is really nice, if you have a 300$ budget you might want to consider this.

    ViewSonic VX2370SMH (160$):This is my current monitor. I got it on sale for 140$ about 9 months ago, and absolutely love it.

    Best of luck getting a good monitor, there is a wide selection of great monitors out there. As long as you get an IPS monitor, you can't go wrong, unless you really need 1ms GTG times.

    Look for a used ACD. I found a 23" on Craigslist for $140 and it's been working great for over a year.
