    Hello everyone

    I need some help here. Right now i have an Macbook Air 13" as my main computer, brilliant computer but the screen size is an issue if i am doing more elaborate work (in the screen department). I also have an Lenovo laptop.
    I am looking for a monitor in the size range 15-19".

    I do not play computer games, this is for work.
    I prefer light as possible (perhaps LED is better?)
    I prefer good looking designwise.
    Price budget, i would rather pay more for better if its actually worth it.
    It needs to be easy connectable with both my computers as a second screen.

    Please recommend or if you have any importent suggestions or questions please let me know. Thanks!

    To be honest

    Unless you need a top class calibrated screen for video or photo work any modern LCD/LED IPS screen will do you fine....

    This oner looks quite nice...

    I bought this a couple of months ago and have been really happy with it. It looks like it is pretty much out of stock everywhere I looked (got it from Amazon for $499) so maybe they are planning on an update?
    Anyhow I can attest to the build quality and design which are both really great:

    PLANAR 997-7145-00 PXL2790MW

    Pricey but here it is on New Egg
