I am new to owning a MacBook Pro 15" and would like to add an external monitor. I am a college kid with limited funds, does anyone know what would be a feasable 20" external monitor for my laptop?

there have been some good sales at best buy lately on monitors. I've been looking myself.

the above info is good too though (dell, hp, etc)

I'm about to buy a BenQ FP202W. its like 30 pixels shy of 1080p, got a 1000:1 contrast ratio, and its sub-$200. It'll be my second BenQ monitor, as i loved the first one.

I got a 20" Samsung for only about $220. I use it with my MBP, and it works great, its 1680x1050.

Since you have limited funds, I suggest to keep an eye on craigslist in your area. I recently picked up a 19" monitor for super cheap.
