I currently run a 13" MacBook Air (Mid 2012) and have finally got a desk for my house and am wanting to get an external screen so that I can work in clamshell mode. I don't need a big screen, I'm thinking something around the 22"-24" range, but having never purchased a monitor before, I hadn't realised that they tend not to come with speakers built in. Whilst looking around quite aimlessly on the internet, I've seen that TVs in this range are often quoted as being suitable as a monitor too. These obviously have the advantage of having built in speakers too. I've not got a massive budget, I don't want to spend more than £200 (circa $315) in total. I won't be gaming, so don't need to have the greatest specs to be capable of this. I just use my Air for photos, the very occasional bit of iMovie, browsing the internet etc; nothing too taxing. I'm looking for advice on what would be the best approach to go. If I get a TV, then obviously I can use it as a TV, where as if I get a monitor, I've then got to get speakers too. Any comments or advice would be greatly received. Thanks.
