Monitor prices during the pandemic?

I was reading recently how there's been a surge in demand for laptops. Has this affected PC (Windows) sales including monitors? We're looking to replace our aging 21 inch Dell monitor especially now since the white color despite monitor calibration is yellowish. Ideally, it would be nice if we can find a nice touch screen monitor but that's probably pushing it if we want to use it or an older PC. Any recommendations?

Good Morning
I'd imagine that monitors are also surging. I have a few friends who now work from home, they all got assigned laptops and monitors. They even got a "wellness budget" of $2000+ to purchase multiple monitors, chairs, desks, internet upgrades, etc.

i'd suggest looking around, seeing what meets your needs and budget and going for it. Of course there's always RFD. Stay Blessed and safe

Because of COVID-19, every student is at home doing online school and play more games. Many people are working from homes. Everything relates to electronics/computers are spiking. From desktops, monitors, keyboards/mice, routers, USB drives, hard drives, SSD, laptops are in demands. Even game consoles, TVs, internet are in demands also. However some of these are on sale more often and more choices.

Best to decide on budget and needs for usage. Good luck.

Quite a few of the monitors I was looking at in the budget 4K 32" size category went up in price over the last month or sold out entirely.
RFD is not just about saving money, it's about the thrill of the hunt and getting the stuff I want without paying full price like Joe Shmoe did.
This applies to everyday items as well as high end items that I don't really need.
