    Hi

    Could some one please recommend a monitor for my mac book pro 17" i7 laptop.

    I have thought of buying a desktop iMac, but i could save money and just buy a monitor ?

    Any ideas ? looking for around 20 to 27 inch display.

    Cheers

    Kev

    well I bought a refurb thunderbolt display... yours is not thunderbolt enabled right so you cant really do that and buying a cinema display is not good value coz it is already obsolete.. If you keep things in good condition like I do and your laptop is mint then I suggest selling it and buying an imac is having a desktop suits you.

    The refurb Thunderbolt Display is a great option if you can find one. There are cheaper models but I love the convenience of one cable to hook up all of my drives and peripherals.

    Well if u have TB then I would go for the TB display just coz u can charge and connect with the cable you don't have to run any other adapters, people are talking about a new one coming out but I ain't holding my breath,I bought mine recently refurb, I will not buy it full price though so either look for CL around your area to pick on real cheap or refurb if u want the security of warranty etc

    The thunderbolt displays were a bit pricey for me. I picked up a 27" AOC monitor with an IPS panel at Best Buy on sale a few months ago. It's not the most amazing monitor ever, but it was a good compromise between quality and price. Plus, it's HDMI so I can connect other stuff, and I just picked up a thunderbolt to HDMI cable off Amazon.

    For newer or rmbp it's cool right coz u guys have sooooo many ports hdmi ports 2 tb but for older comps there's no hdmi and only one tb port so the docking function of the tb display is so awesome
