    Question Alternate to Thunderbolt Display for Mac Book Pro

    Hello,

    I am purchasing a MacBook Pro but need a second monitor. The Thuderbolt display, although impressive, is too expensive for me.

    What would be an alternative for a screen that is about 23" +?

    I am not sure what spec to look for!

    I am currently using a PC laptop and a 23" HP monitor but the clarity is not good (i.e. thin lines are non-existent...lack of detail).

    Any thoughts?

    Cheers,

    Dave

    You'll want an IPS display of some sort.

    Personally I'm fond of the Dell Ultrasharps -- they even happen to be on sale at newegg at the moment.
