I just moved offices for the summer and am setting up a temporary space until my new office is built (I’m the director of institutional research & training at a private college). I’d like to order a decent monitor without breaking the bank, since my work won’t reimburse me. To me that means <$400 if possible but could go up to 500 if you think it’s really necessary.
I’m embarrassed to admit this but I know nothing about monitors and am concerned I’d pick something that would be completely wrong for what I have (and that I wouldn’t have the right connector for it so I could use it in the first place). Could you please share your wisdom? Note: I did search the forums and reviewed this thread; Recommended monitors?=
But am unclear if my set up would be suitable for those monitors mentioned there. I have this one in my cart but would prefer something with Prime shipping so could get set up faster (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01IRQAYPE/ref=ox_sc_act_image_1?smid=A13BNE3P7C8THK&psc=1).
I purchased a new fully loaded MacBook Pro and an Air this past fall. The Pro would be “stationary” so to speak and would leave it connected all the time. I tote the Air home and to meetings but it would be nice to connect it in a quick demo situation if necessary. So it would be nice if the monitor would look nice with both but my priority is the MBP.
Not sure if it matters, but the main reasons I want the extra monitor are for more screen real estate when I remote into my windows pc in my old office (it has to stay put for now due to some secure line connection issues) and so I can more easily show my research partner (whose office I’m sharing) my screen when we are working on articles together.
Thank you very much for your help!
