    I'm beginning to have second thoughts about buying an imac and am considering a mac mini as I have seen some great looking LCD monitors. Can anyone recommend a good monitor for a mac mini and what should I consider as far as resolution. I like the imac but am concerned about the monitors on the 20 inch.

    I have BenQ E2400HD as my secondary monitor with iMac. I've liked it a lot. Nice price, great inputs and OK picture

    I recently purchased a new mini and picked up a close out of the 20" cinema display. Apple had been carrying refurbs of these monitors on their site. Its still a little expensive, but the two look great together and I love the monitor on it own.

    Long live matte displays!

    Try Dell 22" e-IPS 2209WA.

    I don't have it, but have been hearing good things about it. Seems to be a good pick.

    +1 - I picked up two of these for $450 shipped and couldn't be happier. Go on youtube.com and type in 2209wa to see them in the action. I like the one that shows the UP trailer - gives you a great idea of how awesome the viewing angles are and the colors.
