    I'm in the market for at least a 24" monitor to use as an external display for my laptop. I have roughly a £250 budget. I'd mainly use it for programming with some occasional gaming/movie watching. Hoping for an ips panel with at least 1080p resolution.
    My laptop is a Dell L702x with both hdmi and display port.


    Any suggestion would be really welcome

    There are some Viewsonic 27'' IPS models for about 200 though they are only 1080p. Otherwise, Dell 24'' 1920x1200 or 1920x1080 IPS models are both around 200-220. If you're willing to step down to something a fraction smaller (23'') you're looking at 120-160 quid depending on brand. LG and viewsonic do great budget options. Nasty stand on the LG but a good panel at a bargain price.

    I wouldn't mind a 23" if I can get a good and cheap one. Are there any sub £250 ones that are 1920x1200?

    The Dell U2412 is the only 1920x1200 screen I know of.... there might be some others, of course.

    Thx for all the replies. As much as I would love to get dell u2711 I'll settle for now for that Lg display.

    BenQ have a great selection. Play.com sells a lot of 24+ inch monitors at very reasonable prices... plus free shipping :)
