What are the specs of a good quality monitor? I am in the market for a monitor, a 19 incher, for my new PB for school, but with all the specs listed I dunno what to tell what from what. The only concern for me would be that ghosting during games is unacceptable. So, that being said, what kind of monitor specs would suit my needs?

2005fpw! cheapest (in terms of price) in its range, it's great!

couple it with a 12" powerbook and you're good to go.

Either the Dell 2005FPW or the other Dell (model is slipping my mind - 1905 maybe?) 19 inch 4:3 ratio display. Hate to say it, but you can really not go wrong with a Dell in this situation...

I got the latter. Really hooked up nicely to my 12". Best part is I place my Powerbook in clamshell mode right on top of the foot of the monitor and I have tons of desk space. Best part though, is VGA and DVI, so I hooked up my desktop and laptop simultaneously and switch back with 5 flicks of buttons(Its sure isn't 1 button easy, but close enough). :p
