Or maybe you just want to put your feet up and binge-watch House Of Cards on a larger screen. You don't need to spend a fortune on 4K or 5K displays either. If you just want to watch streaming video on Netflix or YouTube then there are plenty of affordable Full HD displays with standard x resolution that will fit the bill nicely. However, in April Apple announced its plans to produce an Apple monitor to sit alongside the also promised Mac Pro when it launches at some point in We have an article that discusses what new features the new Apple monitor may bring.

There are a couple of important things to consider before you take a look at the screens, displays and monitors we'd recommend, so here's a brief breakdown of the differences and options to look out for. It's likely that your Mac has a Thunderbolt 2 port or a Thunderbolt 3 port. Thunderbolt 2 is backwards compatible with Mini DisplayPort. It may be unnecessary to go to those lengths though. And here's the company's list of the ports on its latest Macs.

Read our article on how to connect a second screen to a Mac which explains everything you need to know about how to identify which ports you have, the adaptors you will require, and how to set things up on your Mac. If you are using your Mac with an external screen and want to close the lid on your MacBook here's How to use MacBook with lid closed, stop closed Mac sleeping. This is the other important factor to bear in mind when choosing your monitor.
If you are going to spend a lot of time sat at a desk looking at your new display then you need to keep ergonomics in mind, or you might end up with neck or back ache. Ideally, look for monitors that are adjustable - you'll want to make sure that the monitor is positioned so that you can comfortably look at the screen. There is a point at about 2 to 3 inches from the top of the screen that should be at eye level.

You also want to look for monitors that won't suffer from glare, or you will be forever repositioning the monitor or your head to compensate for it. It's always been annoying that Apple only offers iMac monitors in two sizes - compact 21in models for home users, and 27in for professional users.
The x resolution may not be state-of-the-art, but it's more than adequate for watching high-def video, web browsing, gaming or using Microsoft Office at work. It's bright and colourful, and while it might not provide the colour-fidelity required by designers or photographers it'll still work a treat for most home users and office workers who simply need a compact and attractive screen.
It's a very practical option too, as the stand allows you to tilt and swivel the screen, and adjust the height, with just slight pressure from a your fingers. You can rotate it as well, to provide an upright portrait display if required. The monitor is also jam-packed with connectivity options that will come in particularly handy for office use.
More information here. There are also two USB 3. The 27in display only has a resolution of x, which is relatively modest by Apple standards these days, but that's still more than enough for watching HD video, doing a spot of photo-editing, or playing with really large spreadsheets in Excel. The image is bright and clear, with very bold colours, but Acer also includes a blue-light filter to ease the strain on your eyes, and there's a glare-reduction feature that works well even with the sun pouring through our office window on a bright summer afternoon.
Our only real complaint is that - like the monitor on the iMac - it doesn't allow you to adjust the height of the screen.
Getting started is, admittedly, a bit of a hassle, as the screen, stand, and base all come as separate parts that have to be screwed together, and many of the controls and connectors are annoyingly tucked on the underside of the screen.
