Hi there,

I was wondering which monitor I should get for my upcoming Mac Mini. Its got to be cheap because I am a student and only have up to $150 to spend on a monitor. Any ideas?

I was looking at this one... http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?skuId=7039554&type=product&productCategoryId=pcmcat56900050018&id=1099395911288

They have them at my local best buy but I am not sure if it would work with the Mac Mini.

Thanks in advance.

Maybe you should think about a nice secondhand LCD display from eBay?

CRT's are so 90's !

If you can wait a few months for the holidays and save some money you would be able to get a decent 17" LCD real cheap. I got a 17" Envision monitor from staples for about $150 a few months ago.
19" CRT's are behemoths and there is no comparison in clarity compared to a 17" LCD and no real viewable size difference.

Keep an eye out for sales your desk, your back, and your eyes will thank you.

That looks like a good monitor, 1600x1200 is a nice resolution to work at. If you'd like an LCD you can get the Dell 1705FPT for around $150 after discrounts, though there'll be more costs for taxes (I think they tax everywhere in the U.S.) and shipping, but it's a good monitor.
