Just a little background info. I have a black MacBook, and i'm very satisfied with it. However, i'm trying to break into the web design industry, and I really feel the need for more screen space to do my work. The MacBook is great for my day to day use, but I need a 20"+ monitor to work comfortably. I have a few questions I would like answered! 1) At first I was considering a 20" iMac, but a friend recommended that I just buy an external display. I know the MacBook is capable of running in closed lid mode, but is it healthy for the machine (Heat coming from the fans damaging the screen, limit machine life)? Would it not make more sense to just get a stand alone Mac? 2) Can anyone recommend me a good 20" monitor that will work well my my MacBook? Ideally from a well known UK store (online preferably) for around £350. 3) Is there anything else that I need to buy to get this to work?
