Hi all.

I have just bought a MacBook Pro for my eldest who is about to start college. Spec...

15” 2014 MacBook Pro.
Intel Core i7 4th Gen. 2.50 GHz.
Graphics Intel Iris Pro 1536 MB
512 GB SSD
16 GB RAM

Spec: https://everymac.com/systems/apple/...l-graphics-mid-2014-retina-display-specs.html

I’m about to start searching for a single external monitor to accompany the MacBook and wondered what would be the best, most appropriate model that doesn’t tax the the MBP too much with the fans at high rpm?

Assuming something like one of the older 20" or 23" Cinema Displays (silver edged) or one of the 24” & 27” Thunderbolt displays would be a good match?

Any pointers gratefully received folks!

I have bought a couple of HP 24-inch IPS displays from Amazon. They're $110, which I think is a pretty good price for a pretty good monitor. Can connect with an HDMI cable 0 I believe this MBP has that port so no adapter needed.
