Hello,

 

I am working a lot on my laptop, on school I use only one screen but I want for home a second screen.

 

Does someone got advice for a good screen? Pleas no more then €150.

 

Also, what kind of cables do I need?

 

Edit: What 'bout this one? http://www.bol.com/nl/p/iiyama-prolite-e2080hsd-b1-monitor/9200000009856211/

Don't know if you have chosen an additional monitor yet, however I opted to purchase a 23 inch flat screen on sale at a price more reasonable than a computer monitor. If laptop has hdmi port...great. If it has a VGA port also good.  Just make sure there are matching ports. I have antenna connected to the tv and also use as a tv.    Good Luck !!!

Cables are already included with the monitor, so no need to worry about that. You need to make sure you have a VGA port on your computer though, or else you may need an adapter. If you don't know the difference take a look here:

So are you planning on using this monitor for mostly school work? No gaming, video editing, or photo editing?
