Looking for a monitor or two
hey i have a macbook and im just looking for where i could get a cheap LCD monitor or two maybe like a 15 or 17 inch dont really need anything bigger. if i could find one cheap enough to get 2 it would be really dope. and how would i go about connecting 2 monitors? i know how to set them up on the computer just wondering how the cords would work. any input is appreciated. thanks apple heads.
if you have a costco or and other wholesale store near you they might have a good LCD monitor for sale espcially now for the holidays. Walmart even though i hate it might have some deals. Mostly any electronic store will have deals now. Bestbuy has some nice ones for $130 right now. Staples has one 17" for $130. But ou can only set up 1 monitor since you likely only have one DVI port. You can get a video splitter but i don't recommend it.
ok i just looked around and there are some 17's for 130 but i found a 19 widescreen for 150 which i think is a much better deal. and why would a splitter be a problem?
i just don't think it would be good to use with the macbook and if you have get a 19" monitor thats plenty big enough to do many things with. Unless you need to be able to use all three monitors for editing
well i would prolly just use the two and not my computer and i found some good deals so i might start with one and then get a second sometime later. one is gonna be my tv too
yea thats a good idea. I have a samsung 19" LCD in my room which i sometimes hook up to my computer and it workls great
yea i think i am gonna get 2 17" dell monitors that i can get for like 220-240 for both shipped. then a tv micro express and i will be all set.
yea that should be a nice set up
