I am planning the purchase of a new 2017 MacBook 12" computer and would like to pair it with an external monitor at my desktop at work. Here is what I would like (and not like); 1. I want to take advantage of the single USB-C port for charging the MacBook while I work, along with output display and i/o connections. Specifically, I have several devices to which I want to connect (hard-wire ethernet, scanner, keyboard, external disks, plus occasional iPhone sync and charge). I am OK, to a certain extent, with additional hubs and adapters to make everything connect (but see the last paragraph). 2. I work primarily with documents (80%) and graphics (20%), but not so much with photographs and almost never with movies. I believe that I would be very happy with a good 27" monitor. I do not believe that I need 4K resolution. So, this seems to rule out the Apple-endorsed LG UltraFine 4K Display at 21.5". The several 4K 27" monitors with USB-C also do not seem to be well suited for the MacBook 12" (per scaling arguments of needing 5K at 27" to take full advantage of native resolution). 3. It would be nice, but not essential, to have external speakers within the monitor. The lack of Thunderbolt on the MacBook (unlike the USB-C ports on the MacBook Pro) makes meeting these objectives a bit tricky. The use a dock, like the OWC USB-C dock, would address most of these desires and allow the use of many 27" monitors. However, I would rather, for the sake of reduced desktop clutter, find a monitor that alone would work. I have tentatively identified a few choices: Acer H277HU BenQ PD2710QC Dell S2718D Lenovo ThinkVision P27h Philips Brilliance 258B6QUEB ViewSonic VX2781-UC Any advice, experience, and insight would be very much appreciated!
